Green Apple Tokku

Green apples are sweet and tangy, how about turning them spicy? Here’s how:

Preparation time: 10-15 mins


Green apples 2
Red chillies 5
Fenugreek seeds 3/4th tbsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Refined cooking oil 1 tbsp
Pinch of asafoetida
Pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste


Grate the green apples fine. An electric grater is always a better option. Alternatively, coarse grind the green apples. Add salt and turmeric, mix well, cover and set aside.

Grind to a fine powder: 4 red chillies, the fenugreek seeds and less than one-fourth tsp of mustard seeds.

Add this mix to the grated apples and mix well.

In a pan, heat oil and add a red chilli and half a tsp of mustard seeds. As they pop, remove from heat and cool the oil for a couple of minutes before adding asafoetida. Pour the seasoning over the apples and close the lid immediately for the apples to imbibe the asafoetida flavor.

Spicy green apple tokku is a great combo with sambar rice, curd rice and upma.
