Apple Pickle | Apple Pachadi | Pickled Granny Smith Apples

Apple Pickle

Apples are the one fruit I maintain a distance. It's kind of complicated that I like to have a apple juice but not the fruit. Even a tasty dessert with it is a no no to me. So this time when I was visiting the fruit/veggie market I thought of trying this green "Granny Smith Apples" & got a couple of them. 


The other day while I was taking to my mom she told me about my grand mom's recipe for chutney with red apples.With collaborated effort we both came out with this spicy pickle recipe.
Pickles generally ask for sourness in the recipe & granny smith apples have what a pickle needed. It's a instant pickle with couple more ingredients add to it & you can have it on the same day you made it.

Apple Pickle
Prep Time-10mins | Cook Time-5mins | Yields-6 & more servings
Ingredients
1Big granny smith apple /2cups grated apple 
2Tbs chili powder (Adjust acc. to your spice level) / kaaram
1/2Tsp turmeric powder / pasupu
2Tsp mustard seeds / avalu
1/2Tsp methi seeds / menthulu
Salt 
Seasoning
2Tbs oil
1Tsp mustard seeds 
2Red chilli's cut in equal size 
2Crushed garlic pods 
Few curry leaves
Directions
- Heat a pan with mustard & methi seeds. Roast them for 2mins.Switch off heat. Allow them to cool & grind them to smooth powder.
- Take grated apple in a bowl add turmeric,chili powder, mustard methi powder & salt.Mix them well.
- Heat pan with oil add mustard, red chili's, curry leaves & crushed garlic. Once the mustard starts jumping switch off heat.
- Mix seasoning to the apple mixture. Keep it aside for at least 1hr & let the flavors mingle.
- Serve it as a side for rice & roti.
Note:
- Instead of garlic you can flavor up with hing/asafoetida. 
- Don't grate or cut apple ahead becoz apple turns brown. So to avoid  arrange all the ingredients ahead and then come to apple.
- Adjust chilli powder.
