Green Apple Chutney

Green apple which is sweet and sour in taste has long been recognized as one of the healthiest fruits. It is innately packed with a variety of essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamins, minerals and fibers. These are known to offer relief from digestive disorders and are also very effective in lowering blood cholesterol and BP, stabilizing blood sugar levels & improving appetite.
In my family, no one except me is fond of green apple. I generally use it for salad or pickle. The crisp texture and the sweet and sour flavour of the green apple makes it an excellent ingredient for salad and pickle. For a change I wanted to make chutney.
It’s a simple recipe, easy to make and totally delicious 🙂



Chopped onions- 1 cup
Chopped green apple- 1 cup
Sambar powder- 1 heaped tsp
Jaggery- 2 tsps
Oil- 1 tbsp
Mustard- 1 tsp
Split urad dal- 1 tsp
Hing- 2 pinches
Salt to taste
Heat oil in a pan.
Add mustard. Once it starts spluttering, add split urad dal and hing. Sauté for few seconds and add the chopped onions.
Sauté till the onions turn pale.
Add the chopped green apple, sambar powder, jaggery and salt to taste. Mix well and cook till the apple becomes tender.
Cool and grind this to a coarse chutney.
Serve it with Idli/ dosa/ Othappam 🙂
