  • 2 large red delicious apples (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup water


  • In a saucepan combine chopped apples, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder, ginger powder, nutmeg and brown sugar. Turn on the flame at high and stir with a spatula until liquid is released (about 5 minutes).
  • Add lemon juice and stir again for 3-4 minutes at medium-high flame. Then add chia seeds and mix well.
  • Add water and cook covered at low-medium for 5-7 minutes or until the apples are soft. Open the lid and mash them in the saucepan with a food masher as much as possible. Cook again at low flame while stirring continuously until all the liquid is almost absorbed but not completely dry.
  • Now, blend it in a blender/food processor as smooth as possible ( do not overdo this step).
    blend the ingredients
  • Spoon it out again in the same saucepan and cook again for 1-2 minutes or for couple of boils at medium flame. Stir nicely and turn it off. Remove from the flame and let it cool down to room temperature. Store it in a glass jar and serve or refrigerate.


  • While cooking these apples make sure to keep a constant watch so that they do not stick to the bottom of the pan and are burned.
  • This recipe can be refrigerated for about 2-3 weeks in a glass jar.
  • This recipe makes about 3/4 cup and the serving size is about 1 tbsp per person.
