This delicious stewed spiced apples dish is an Ayurvedic recipe, usually taken at breakfast. Although it can also make a wonderful healthy dessert. I first had this delicious dish when I was studying to become an Ayurvedic practitioner, over a decade ago. It is still one of my favourites.
This vegan recipe is quick and easy to make, has only 4 ingredients and it takes less than 20 minutes. Apples are very well suited for the Pitta dosha predominant individuals especially those which are sweeter. Raw apples can increase Kapha and Vata, however this recipe is suited for both because the apples are well cooked, making them easier to digest and combined with the two spices which pacify all three doshas.
2 apples (diced)
2 tbsps of Cinnamon
1 tbsp of Cardamon
Coconut oil for the cooking
1.Dice the apples into small cubes.
2.In a pot or pan, add coconut oil and when it is hot, add the spices. Let these cook for about 1-2minutes.
3.Add the apples and stir well with the spices.
4.Add 2 cups of water and let it all simmer for about 10 minutes at low heat.
When the apples are soft, it is ready.
You can serve with Gluten-free toast and sultanas, or on their own.
