Add the apple slices to a pressure cooker. Add 2-3 tablespoon water to it. Pressure cook the apples for 2 whistles. Put the pressure cooker under running tap water and let it cool. Alternatively, you can steam the apple pieces in a baby steamer.
You can also cook the apples in a pan covered till they become soft. However cooking in a pressure cooker/ steamer just saves on time and is healthier as quick cooking preserves most nutrition.
