Fun With Sour Apples

Grapes can be sour sometimes; like so many other things in life. You just need to be patient and stay positive, that’s all. But what about apples?

Last week, I bought a kilo of red, crisp looking apples. I got a shock of my life when I dug my teeth into one of them the other day. It tasted more like tamarind and less like an apple!

But I didn’t have the heart to throw those glamorous apples into the dustbin, so I thought, “Let me use them in creating something new.”

Here are a few recipes. They all turned out to be very yummy, to my pleasant surprise!

1.Apple chutney

a. Cut one sour apple and one tomato into small slices. Grind these in a mixi with some water, gur, salt, half teaspoon each of whole jeera and coriander seeds, and 2-3 green chillies.

b. Store the chutney in a glass container. Serve it with hot paranthas.

Here are the pics.

2. Sweet-sour chick peas curry:

a. Grate two sour apples.

b. Fry onions in 2 tablespoonfulls of oil till they turn pink. Add one tomato.

c. Once they turn into a paste, add grated apples and some chilli powder accorfing to your taste into the karahi.

d. Then add the boiled chick peas and adjust the viscosity of the gravy by adding more water if required. You can also add some grated ginger for extra sharp taste.

You can use this apple-tomato-onion masala for many other recipes too. I used it for ma sabut-rajma gravy, a typical punjabi favorite…

I look forward to reading your comments.

  6. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the
    screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do
    with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many

  13. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both
    educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this during
    my search for something relating to this.

    internet. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people really need to check this out and understand this side of
    the story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular because you surely have
    the gift.
