Green Apple Chitranna


The winter is in full swing with unbearable cold,one good thing we can look forward in winter is winter crops.Among number of  winter crops apples top the list with its amazing nutritious properties as a saying eating apple a day keeps the doctor away.We have tasted apples in desserts,pudding and pastries but not much in savoury dishes apart from chutneys.Here is my take on popular rice dish chitranna which got a little twist with the addition of grated sour apple instead of lemon or lime juice.This gives a rice new fresh taste  and easy way to add the fruit to your daily intake.Hope you like it. 

Ingredients:
2-Green Apples sour variety(grated)
2cups-Cooked rice
2 tbsp-vegetable or sunflower oil+ oil extra oil for mixing
1/2 tsp- cumin seeds
1/2 tsp- mustard seeds
1/2 tsp- turmeric
4- green chillies finely chopped
12 to 15 fresh curry leavesA
1 tbsp- channa dal/bengal gram
1tbsp-urad dal/blackgram
1/4 cup- roasted peanuts
1/4cup-fresh coconut,grated
1 salt to taste
Fresh coriander chopped



Method:
1.Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat,add mustard and cumin and allow them to splutter

2.Now add both dals,make sure to keep an eye on the flame other wise it will burn the tempering,after the dals become lightly brown add green chillies,red chillies,curry leaves and turmeric and salt, saute for 1 minute,mix well
3.And grated apple with little water(1Tbsp),cook for 3-4 minutes and take out of the flame and keep aside to cool for 5 -10 minutes.



For mixing:
Take a wide bowl and add all the rice,break the lumps very gently with wooden spatula(clean hand is better),now add the cooled tempering,chopped coriander,and 1 or 2tbsp of oil,roasted peanuts,grated fresh coconut on top of the rice.mix gently with wooden spatula ,making sure not to break the rice.If you find salt is less you can add and mix it along with other ingredients.

Before serving garnish with fresh coriander,fresh grated coconut and fried peanuts and enjoy with pickles and curd rice.

Note:
1.If the apple is not sour you can use lemon or lime juice while mixing the rice.
2.You can store the leftover gojju in fridge for 2-3days in refrigirator.

Note:
1.Don't over peel the drumsticks,my mother says most of the nutrients and flavour of nuggekayi is in the skin.
2.If you want the thick  gravy reduce the water and if you want have thinner gravy for rice add more water
and adjust the salt as per taste.
3.You can also add potatoes along with this.for this you need to boil the chopped potatoes seperatly  just the way you cook drumsticks.
4.When gray begins boiling add potatoes and drumstick together.
5.I told you to retain the water in which drumstick are cooked because it has got more flavour and ofcourse
nutrients.you can retain both potato and drumstick water and use it instead of using plain water.
