While I was expecting my baby, my friends used to get me lot of pickles, though I never had an urge to eat that much pickles. But among all that I had those days, these apple pickles were one that I really liked. I have made this pickles so many times now. They are good replacement for raw mango pickles and one can finish off a bowl at a time. They go very well along with curd rice. This is an instant pickle and lasts for about an week if kept in the refrigerator ( if you let it remain for a week).
What You need :
2 large granny smith apple
3/4 teaspoon fenugreek seeds powder ( methi)
1 teaspoon mustard
1/4 teaspoon asafoetida ( hing)

salt to taste
How it's Made:
