Green apple pickle

Another must try recipe for pickle lovers!! It is unbelievably tasty & very easy to prepare too.

Many of my friends who tasted this pickle wanted me to re-prioritize my draft posts & requested me to put this first. Here it is for you guys!! Do prepare & let me know.

Preparation time: 10mins
Cooking time: 5 mins
Shelf life: 1 month (without refrigeration)

Ingredients: (For around 1.5 cups of pickle)
Green apple: 3 nos
Oil: 1.5 tsp
Mustard seeds: 1 tsp
Fenugreek seeds: a pinch
Asafoetida: a pinch
Turmeric: a pinch
Salt: 2 tsp
Red chili powder: 1.5 tsp(less spicier variety like Kashmiri chili powder)
Vinegar: 1- 1.5 tbsp (adjust according to the sourness of the green apple)
Fenugreek seeds powder: 1/2 tsp


  • Wash the apples & pat dry them. Ensure there is no moisture.
  • De-seed the apple & chop them finely.
  • Heat oil in a broad pan. When oil is hot, add mustard seeds. When seeds splutter, add fenugreek seeds & saute for 5-7secs. Add the turmeric, asafoetida. Saute.
  • Throw in the chopped green apples & saute them on medium heat for 2-3 mins.

  • Add the salt, chili powder. Mix well & saute again for 1-2mins.
  • Turn off the heat. Add the vinegar & mix well.
  • Allow the pickle to cool. I usually keep the pickle overnight covered.
  • Scoop them out to a sterilized bottle & use as required.

  • This is an instant pickle. You could use it immediately after the pickle is cooled. However, for the flavors to soak in, it is better to wait for 8hours. 
  • Apple should not be cooked for more than 5mins. The idea behind it is, apple should be half cooked & crunchy. 
  • I have stored this pickle for 1.5 months (without storing it in the fridge).
