Apple Banana Halwa

After a "not so interesting week" I was just bored in the evening not knowing what to do..Wanted to do something interesting..one thing I had never tried doing is to cook entirely in a microwave. Always wanted to try it..but never got a chance to do it !! Inspired by Srividhya's 5 in 1 halwa thought of doing something similar and prepared the Apple Banana Halwa.

It was so easy and Shweets loved it a lot. She did not even wait for me to take a picture was trying to put a finger into the halwa.She was going on asking what was this and badly wanted to taste it..So I just settled down with what I clicked and served it to her.As I'm not a great sweet lover I just had a spoon and it was too good. Hunting for more microwave recipes.

Banana - 1 no
Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup
Oats - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
