So, I finally got some apples from my neighbour…. No, not stolen, in fact, he actually delivered it to the front door, in the rain. So made apple chutney and my neighbour loved it. In fact, as I write this, I can see him on the ladder trying to pluck some more apples from his tree…
Apple chutney ( Instapot)
1/2 tsp each mustard , cumin, fenugreek, fennel, kalonji seeds
1/2 tsp each turmeric pd, chilli powder, ginger powder
Salt and sugar to taste ( I added 1/4 cup sugar)
Apple cider vinegar optional (usually 2 tbsp)
-Peel, core, chop apples.
-Heat oil in instapot. Add mustard seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds and kalonji. Stir till done.
-Add apples, curry leaves, turmeric, ginger powder. Stir for 5 mins.
-Cover and pressure cook for 20mins.
-Release the lid . You will get a rich syrupy chutney.
-Add mirchi powder, salt and sugar and heat on saute function till you get the chutney consistency.
-You can add a bit of vinegar ( I try to avoid it, not much of a fan)
-Remove from heat and store in a dry container.
