• Apple Pickle! Posted on June 06, 2013

    Apple Pickle! This is less like the briny vinegar pickles we usually highlight, and more of a spicy Apple relish (think Indian style Pickle condiment).


    Green apples - 3 chopped with skin into small pieces
    Green chillies - 5 chopped into rings
    Ginger - 1/2 tsp chopped
    Garlic - 8 cloves
    Salt - to taste.
    Curry leaves - 1 spring
    Kashmiri chilly powder - 2 tsp
    turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
    Asafotida - 2 pinches
    Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
    Fenugreek seeds - 1/4 th tsp
    Oil - 3 tbsp


    Chop the apples and add salt to it and keep aside .If you add salt the apples don't discolor.

    Heat oil in a pan ad splutter the mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds.

    Add in the green chillies,garlic,ginger and curry leaves and stir fry for a minute.

    Reduce flame to low and Add in the chilly powder,turmeric powder and asafetida.

    Stir fry until raw smell is gone , take care not to burn it .

    Turn the flame off and add the apples marinated in salt and mix well.

    NOTE: This pickle has a short shelf life and can be stored outside only for 4 or 5 days , after that the fermentation process starts and it turns sour.It is best eaten fresh while the apple still retains a crunch.
