Interesting recipe! What does it mean to dry roast? I haven't heard of that before...ReplyDelete
Dry roasting means sauteeing in a griddle without using oil until the spices get a nice aroma and colour.Delete
This sounds delicious and perfect with paratha nad a cup of tea.ReplyDelete
Yes Nayna.. goes with parathas :)Delete
This pickle sounds delicious. I like the idea of adding the apples at the end so that they are still crispy when you eat the pickle. Be perfect with puris and theplas.ReplyDelete
Thanks Mina. This is a must try pickle.Delete
Shobha I made apple pickle recently and loved it.However, I added ready made pickle masala which I had. An easy and delicious alternate to raw mangoes.ReplyDelete
Yes, even I made it in Brazil for the first time and surprisingly it tasted so good.Delete
This apple pickle surely seems to be having tangy sweet flavors. The apple pickle would even go with mathri. I will try with green apples as well.ReplyDelete
Sounds good. Green apples might taste even better as they have a tangy flavourDelete
