Day 269: Apple Chutney

This apple chutney tastes amazing! It's filled with warm spices and a mixture between savory and sweet.

With fall coming to an end, this is a perfect way to celebrate the warm autumn spices. It's also a great way to finish up some leftover apples.

First, you'll cook the apples with some water until they're nice and soft. This will take 15 minutes or so. I recommend mashing the apples with your spoon.

Then add your sugar, and in a separate pan, heat mustard seeds and grated ginger on some oil. Add your cooked apples, and serve!

You can eat this with thepla (Indian bread with spices), or serve it as a dip. Try it with anything you like! What I love about this recipe is that it only makes one cup worth of chutney. This way you don't make too much, it's a perfect amount!


|Level: 👩🏽‍🍳👩🏽‍🍳|Time: 45 minutes|Serves: 4|



  • 2 cups chopped and peeled apples

  • 1 1/2 cups water

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 3 teaspoons mustard seeds

  • A pinch of chilli powder

  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger


  1. In a large pot simmer the apples, water, and cinnamon for 15 minutes. Next, pour in the sugar and cook for 20 more minutes. Make sure to mash your apples with a spoon or cook, so you don't have any lumps. Also, keep stirring, so you don't burn the sugar! Once ready set aside.

  2. In a pan heat oil over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds, chilli powder, and grated ginger. Cook for 1-2 minutes stirring constantly. Pour the apple mixture back and serve.
