Green Apple Thokku / Green Apple Pickle

I saw a recipe of "Mango Thokku"  here and tried it as I had a mango ready. When I was messaging about it to the author, she told me thokku can be made by green apple too! It sounded interesting and I picked up couple of Granny Smith apples during my next shopping and tried this thokku. Its an interesting variation to the regular mango, tomato, poondu thokku we make. So try it once and you will definitely like it. 
Ingredients
Green Apple-2
Chilly powder-1tablespoon(adjust to taste)
Nallennai/Gingelly oil-1/4cup
Mustard seeds-1teaspoon
Asafoetida/hing powder-1/4teaspoon
Methi seeds- 1/2teaspoon
Salt
Method
Dry roast the methi seeds and powder it. 
Wash and peel the apple.
 Grate the apple..
Heat nallennai/gingelly oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and let them pop-up. Then add the hing, add the apples after a few seconds.
 Saute for a minute or two, then add the chilly powder and salt.
Cook on medium heat until the apples are cooked. It will form a smooth ball and won't stick to the pan. By then add the roasted methi seeds powder, mix it well. 
Switch off the stove at this stage, let it cool completely. Transfer it into a dry container and refrigerate it.
Stays fresh up-to one week may be longer..we finished it within a week. :)
