Apple Payasam (Apple Kheer, Apple Sweet Pudding)

I don’t often prepare dishes that require cooked fruits as an ingredient. Mainly because my vegan doctor told me that it is not the healthiest way of eating fruits. However, I presume it is alright to cheat once in a while. I love this apple payasam so much that I decided to cheat a little on my birthday. And thoroughly enjoyed the dish. Yesterday, I asked my driver – Ravi Tanwar – what sweet dish he would like to have for Vishu/Varusha Pirappu (New Year for Malayalis and Tamilians). This falls on 14th. April for Tamilians and 15th. April for Malayalis. He promptly voted for this apple payasam! When I asked him why, he said that it tasted so delicious that the taste was still lingering in his mouth!
