Apple and Dried Cranberry Chutney

It has been a long while since I posted anything on this blog! Plain lazy I have been!

Today's recipe comes from my drafts. I had seen it in one of Nigella's show and tried out instantly. I love it. Try it to check out yourself. Pretty easy yet delicious..

Apple and Dried Cranberry Chutney.


2 granny smith apples, peeled cored and diced.
¼ cup dried sweetened cranberries.
1 tsp oil.
½ tsp nigella seeds.
1 green chilli (optional).
salt to taste.
¼ tsp turmeric powder.
½ tsp red chili powder.
½ tsp coriander powder.
½ tsp cumin powder.
1 tbsp lemon juice.(or vinegar)


1. Heat oil in a pan and add the nigella seeds and green chilli.

2. Now add the chopped apples, cranberries and all the spices and salt. Let it cook in a slow flame. The apples will cook and give out it juices as it get cooked.

3. Mash them and add lemon juice in the end. If you want it more watery add water and cook for 5 more minutes.

4. Let it cool completely before storing. Keep well for up to 7days. Have it with parathas or rotis.

Till I write again! Thanks fro stopping by! Cheers!
