  1. Put the chopped apple and pear, ginger, cornstarch, about half of the sugar and lemon juice in a glass bowl and mix well. Cook in the microwave till the fruit is cooked and the mixture has thickened slightly (about 6 to 8 minutes at 100%)
  2. You can also cook the fruit on the stove-top. Put the above mentioned ingredients, excluding the cornstarch, in a pan with a few tsps of water and cook till done. Dissolve the cornstarch in 2 tbsp water and add to the cooked fruit. Stir well and cokk for a couple of minutes till it thickens.
  3. Put this mixture into a shallow glass dish/ casserole or divide it equally among 4 dessert bowls to make individual servings.
  4. In another bowl combine the flour, remaining sugar, baking powder and soda, and salt. Add the butter and mix till the mixture resembles moist crumbs. Now add the hot water and just stir till a soft dough forms.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of this dough over the hot fruit, to partially or totally cover the fruit. Bake at 200C (400F) for about 20 or 25 minutes or till the topping is a golden brown.
  6. Serve warm with frozen yogurt or ice-cream.
