Apple Pola / Apple Pudding

I was searching  across the net for some desserts to prepare for Iftar. I came across this simple recipe by Sufaija in Shabs cuisine. It turned out really good. But the thickness was less as I used a large pan for preparing the pola.


Apple 1
Eggs 2
Milk powder 2 tbsp
Sugar 2.5 tbsp
Flour 1 tbsp 


Blend all ingredients together to get a smooth paste. Grease a non stick pan well with ghee and cook covered in very low flame. Cook until sides are brown. Flip over after 10 minutes. Server warm or cold.
