Instant Apple Pickle

Wondering how in the an Apple pickle would taste. I felt the same when a friend of mine told me this recipe. I just loved it the first time I tasted. I bet you will too. Its got the juicy, spicy taste. If you are an Apple lover, you sure will love this delicious pickle. It goes very well with Curd rice. If you really liked the pickle, you would sure substitute as a curry for your main course. Here is the recipe.

Apple - 1
Turmeric - 1/4 spoon
Red chille powder- 1/4 spoon
salt - a little less than 1/4 spoon
lime juice -1/2 spoon - optional - add it if you want it a little sour
oil - 1 table spoon - preferrably gingily oil ( Nalla ennai )
Asafoetida powder - little
mustard seeds - 1/4 spoon


Dice apple into very small cubes. Add the lime juice (optional). Add the turmeric, red chille powders. stir and add salt. Heat the oil and add mustard seeds, after it pops, take it off the heat and add asafoetida to it. Now, pour the seasoning to the diced apple and mix well. A healthy pickle is ready in an instant. Lasts for a day when kept in the fridge.


1. If the apple is too sweet, add more red chillie powder and/or one teaspoon lemon juice.

2. It is not necessary to peel out the skin.

3. You can add green chillie seasoning instead of red chillie powder.

4. Add jeera too in the seasoning, if you like the taste of it.

My relative tried this pickle and sent me a photo of how she displayed it. Here is the photo. She is very creative.
