Appler Jilipi (fried Apple Dipped In Sugar Syrup)

It is a very delicious sweet dish. It is also known as "appler ras bhaja". First time I tasted this dish in my choto pishimoni's (aunt's) home. She told me that she learnt to make this from her mother in law. When I was a kid I liked it so much. This dish reminds me of those summer vacations when I used to visit my pishimoni's home. My pishimoni always used to make this for me.
It is very easy to make this dish. You can make this in the special occasions like Holi, Diwali, Bijaya Dashami etc.
Before I start telling you the recipe, I want to share with you some of the benifits of eating apples. It helps to get whiter and healthier teeth,decrease risk of diabetes, reduce cholesterol. It also helps to get healthier heart and beat constipation. So we may say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
