Green Apple Pickle

This idea of a Green apple pickle was from a friend of mine a few years back. That was a time when I had a craving for Mango pickle and it was not a typical mango season. Since Granny smith apples (Green apples) are a little sour, my friend said it would be a good idea to make it to satisfy my craving! And lo! I make this pickle in a jiffy whenever we feel like it! It is a great idea for parties too. Your guests will be fooled into thinking it is made of mangoes!!

Ingredients - 

Green Apple - 1 medium size
Mirchi powder - 2 tsp
Mustard powder - 3 tsp
Salt - 2 tsp
Fenugreek powder (roasted methi powder) - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1/4 cup
Asafotida (Hing) - 1/4 tsp

*Adjust the flavors as needed.

Green Apple

Method of Preparation -

Wash and dry the Green Apple. Chop it into small pieces.

Add salt and turmeric and mix it well. 

Leave it aside for an hour or so (Optional).

Add mustard powder, mirchi powder, methi powder, oil and asafotida and mix well.

Serve this pickle after 7-8 hours (minimum resting time 1 hr) as the flavors will properly get absorbed into the apple pieces.

Serve with steaming hot rice and ghee for a satisfying meal.

Note - If the apples are not sour enough, lime juice or citric acid can be added.

Take another peek at the yummy pickle!
