Wood Apple Chutney

Here I come with a simple and easy recipe of a tangy sweet and sour chutney made with a unusual fruit..wood apple..I learned this recipe from my mom and is one of my favorite from my childhood..


1. 1 Ripped Wood Applie (कवठ /कौठ ) 
(This is not same as bale 
2. 1/2 Cup grated jaggery
3. 2 tsp chilli powder
4. 1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
5. Salt for taste

1. Break the wood apple and take out the pulp 
2. In a mixer jar add wood appli pulp, jaggery, chilli powder, cumin seeds and salt
3. Grind all ingredients together to make the chutney

Taste great with Roti/Phulaka or Dal-Rice. Also goes well during fasting with Sabudana Khichadi..
Kitchen Gyan: Make sure to use ripped wood apple only. While buying, try to smell the wood apple, if its ripped, it will give sweet smell


  1. Oh! I love wood apple. School memories flooded in when we use to eat raw wood apple. Then came the ripe wood apple mixed with jiggery. I love the taste. Thank you for the reminder.
