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.
