Instant Green Apple Pickle ~~Maharashtrian Special

I dunno how many times i have repeated these sentence but cant ignore it am gonna repeat again today, coz i missed many food events in this blogsphere coz of my stay in India for three months. An another event i missed during my vacation is Indian Cooking Challenge,a monthly event where we cook dishes from various regions of India.For this month's challenge, Srivalli gave us an incredible instant pickle from Maharashtra. Trust me,this sweet,spicy and sour pickle tastes fantabulous, usually green raw mangoes are used for making this fingerlicking pickle, but since its not the season for mangoes here i tried this pickle with green granny smith.

This recipe was shared by Varada's Mom,this pickle gets ready very easily with simple ingredients. Once i get the raw mangoes, am sure i'll try this pickle again. Varada told to dice or grate the mangoes, since i used green apple i diced them instead of grating for making this fantastic pickle. Within three days, me and my H finished half of the bottle i prepared, yes we loved this pickle very much. You can have it with anything, somehow i enjoyed this pickle thoroughly with sambhar rice.


1/4kg Granny smith apple (diced)
1/2cup Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Fenugreek seeds
1/2cup Jaggery
1/2cup Red chilly powder
2tbsp Salt
1tbsp Turmeric powder

Tempering:
1/2cup Oil
1tbsp Mustard seeds
1/2tbsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Asafoetida powder

Heat the oil for tempering in a pan, add the mustard seeds, once its starts splutters add the asafoetida powder and turmeric powder and put off the heat.

Let it cool completely.

Meanwhile grind the mustard seeds,fenugreek seeds,turmeric powder, red chilly powder with half a cup of water as fine paste, add in the jaggery and salt, blend it well.

Now add the grounded masala to the diced apple, pour the cooled tempered oil mixture over the top.

Give a stir and conserve in air tightened bottle.

The pickle is ready to eat.

I'm going to try this for sure. Bookmarking it right away. Just a small clarification. Are you sure about 1/2 cup of mustard seeds for 1/4kg of the apples? Kindly confirm.

Such a refreshing change from the regular pickles. The sourness of the Granny smith must complement well with the spice blend. Must have been yumm with parathas or curd rice

Sushma, yea this pickle calls for half a cup of mustard seeds, its gives a wonderful texture, in case if u want to go for less mustard seeds, just deduce according to u.
