I have already posted green apple recipe in my blog. This one is totaly different and it will stay at room temparature for 3 to 4 days and 3 to 4 weeks if you refrigerate. I have not added garlic in my pickle. If you like garlic you can add some chopped garlic also. It goes well with rice, dosa, idly, aappam , paratha or any tiffin. Let us see how to make this yummy instant pickle.
Preparation time approx 10 minutes.
1 raw green apple chopped in to tiny pieces.
4 tsp chilli powder. ( you can adjust the spice level)

2 to 3 red chillies.
