I dragged myself to kitchen. Trying to cook something new drives the laziness away from me. I knew what I had to cook as a side dish as soon as I saw apples in the fruit bowl. Here is the recipe of the side dish I cooked within 10 minutes. I had to cook rice and sambhar as well of course, but it was ok to cook for another 1/2 hour with that amazing aroma of Apple pickle filled the kitchen.
|Nutritional Information (Approx)||(per serving)|
|Apple (I used green. It is ok to use red apples too)||1|
|Turmeric powder||1/2 tsp|
|Chilli powder||1 tsp|
|Coriander/dhaniya powder||1 tsp|
|Salt to taste||to taste|
|Lemon juice||1 tsp|
|Mustard seeds||1/2 tsp|
|Fenugreek seeds||1/4 tsp|
Grate/ finely chop the apple. They tend to turn brown if kept for a long time so it is best to chop then right before you are to cook it.
Drizzle the lemon juice over grated apple and keep it aside.
In a pan, heat oil and add mustard seeds and wait till they splutter.
Add fenugreek seeds and fry for a minute.
Take the pan out of flame and then add turmeric powder, Chilli powder and salt.
Also add coriander powder and give it a mix and keep the pan back in flame.
Add the grated apple and mix well.
Let it cook for 5 minutes and then remove from the flame.
Serve hot as a side dish to any meal.
- I had seen my mum prepare this from green mangoes. But this has a very different and very yummy taste.
