Spicy Apple Chutney

Sev ki Sirke Waali Chutney

Mamta Gupta

An easy chutney to make, especially when you have access to surplus/windfall apples. Give it a try.


  • 4 Granny Smith or other cooking apples. Other tart apples will also do. You can make it with other fruits like apricots and plums also.

  • 2 tbs. oil

  • 1 tsp nigella or kalaunji seeds (you can use mustard seeds)

  • 1 large pinch of asafoetida powder

  • 1 medium sized onion

  • 1 heaped tsp. grated or chopped ginger

  • 2 tsp salt, adjust to taste

  • 1 tbs. chilli flakes or coarsely ground dry red chilli

  • 1 heaped tsp. Garam Masala. You can use mixed spice, if you don’t have it.

  • 3 tbs. or a good handful of sultanas or raisins

  • 1 cup grated jagary (Gur) or dark brown sugar or muscovado sugar

  • 1 cup malt vinegar


  1. Peel, core and chop apples roughly.

  2. Peel and chop onions finely.

  3. Heat oil in a pan and add nigella seeds and asafoetida powder. If using mustard seeds, cover the pan, otherwise seeds will jump all over your kitchen.

  4. Add onions and ginger and stir-fry until onions look lightly golden.

  5. Add apples, salt, chillies, garam masala, raisins, vinegar and Jaggery/sugar.

  6. Cook on medium heat until apples are softened and the liquid looks like a thick gravy.

  7. Bottle and label.
