Chutneys are very essential dishes in Indian cuisine. There are a variety of chutney recipes which can be found in India. Some are sweet and some are spicy. Indian food is incomplete without chutney. This recipe is made with two fruits which have tangy and sweet taste. Apple and mango cooked with jaggrey and flavored with spices.It’s a great compliment with Paratha or with bread for breakfast. My kids love to take it to school with Paratha. It is very easy to prepare and you can store it for up to a couple of weeks in the fridge.
Sweet & Sour Mango Apple Chutney
Peel the apples and chop them.

Heat oil in a deep pan, add fennel seeds and cumin seeds ( if you want spicy than add whole red chili). Once it starts crackling, add mango and apple into it. Saute it for 5 minutes.

Let it cook until mango and apple gets tender (about 15-20 minutes) at medium heat.
Meanwhile take jaggrey and add it to 1/4 cup of water in a pan. Let it boil for 3 minutes or till the syrup gets little thicker (you can add jaggrey to your taste).
