Fresh Apple Chhundo | Gujarati Apple Chhundo | Indian Apple Relish | Cooking Apple Chutney Recipe
Updated: Jan 23
Growing up and being Gujarati, we ate a lot of sweet and sour foods! This recipe is one that I haven't seen anyone else make, but whomever tries this, loves it!!
This sweet & sour Chhundo or Relish is made using a Cooking Apple due to its tartness. My mum doesn't 'cook' the apple but instead lets it marinate a little with the other ingredients to make this a fresh apple chundo. It goes really well with curries, appetisers or anything you want to enjoy it with! It's wonderful to have handy to perk up any meal! I hope you enjoy this recipe & video!!
Apple Chhundo Recipe Prep Time: 10 Minutes (Approx)
1 Large Cooking Apple (285g)
1 Medium Onion (90g)
2 Green Chillis
2 Medium Cloves Garlic (or 1 Large Clove)
1/2 tspn Salt
1 tspn Ground Cumin
2 TBSP Sugar
Peel the onion and chop it coarsely. Keep aside.
Peel and crush the garlic cloves and chillis. Keep aside.
Then wash and peel the apple. Chop it into small pieces then immediately sprinkle it with a little bit of salt so they don’t go brown.
Add all the ingredients to a chopper and chop the mixture until it is chopped up evenly, not into a paste, but fairly finely.
The flavours will meld together and get better as the Chhundo sits, but you can enjoy it immediately as well if you can't wait!
This goes well with all vegetable curries, pulses and fried foods! ENJOY!
