I had seen this chutney recipe in one of Nigella's show and tried out instantly. It was long time back and since then I have been making it regularly. I love it. Try it to check yourself ; pretty easy and delicious.. Although it can be made with any type of apples, I prefer to use Granny Smith Apples only; as stated in the original recipe as they are tart and that adds to the tangy taste of the chutney. Lets move on to the recipe:

2 tbsp lemon juice (or vinegar).
1. Heat oil in a pan and add the nigella seeds and green chilli.
2. Now add the chopped apples, cranberries and all the spices, sugar and salt. Let it cook in a slow flame. The apples will cook and give out it juices as it get cooked. It will take about 15 minutes.

4. Let it cool completely before storing in a sterilized jar. Keep well for up to 7days.
Have it with parathas or rotis. Also goes well as dip for chips or spread for toast.
1. Cranberries can be replaced by raisins, sultanas or dried cherries.
