Cooked apples are very good to perk up our ojas (our vitality), so it is good to include them in our diet. This dessert is ideal for those with a kapha imbalance and it should ideally be eaten as it is on its own, but vata can eat it with a little crème fraîche on the side and pitta can drizzle over a little cream.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 sweet apple, peeled and rubbed with lemon juice
1 rounded teaspoon demerara or raw cane sugar
25g nuts, roughly chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch nutmeg, grated
1 rounded teaspoon raisins or other dried fruit
80ml apple juice
8g butter

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC. Core the apple to make a neat hole 2.5 cm in diameter. Slice off the base of the apple so it can stand upright.
  2. Mix together the sugar, nuts, cinnamon, nutmeg and raisins. Pack into the cavity of the apple. Place in a snug fitting baking dish and pour around the apple juice. Top the apple with the butter. Cover with foil and bake for 8 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking the apple until soft, basting every 6–7 minutes or so; this takes around 40–45 minutes.

In a hurry?

  • For a quicker dish, cut the apples in half and core, then cook in their skins for 25 minutes.

Proper Ayurveda

  • Eat the apples without any dairy products. Ideally kapha can make the quick version, omit the sugar and drizzle honey over at the end.
