Orange chutney/pickle!!

orange chutney I have been craving for a particular taste and it will be very difficult for me to explain that. It was a kind of spicy, tangy and sour taste. And that is how this orange chutney or pickle came into existence. I had one orange sitting in my fridge for a long time. I was not sure what to do with it. Suddenly yesterday when I wanted something which would taste as I have mentioned above , I thought why not a pickle. So after some browsing, I did find some interesting recipes. I found most of the recipes included pieces of apples. So I decided to put together all the ingredients and add some to meet the requirement of my taste buds and made this one. Yummy..I loved it. And next time, I plan to make this in a bulk. This is how I made.

Ingredients-
Orange- 1 (Peeled,deseeded and chopped into small pieces)
Apple- 1 small(peeled and chopped into small pieces)
Raisins- 1tbspn
Brown sugar-1tbsp
Turmeric powder- A pinch
Chilly powder- 1tsp
All spice powder- 1tsp
Cinnamon powder-1/2tsp
Mustard- 1tsp
Fenugreek seeds- 1/2tsp
Salt to taste
Oil- 2tsp

Method-
Heat the oil in a pan. Add mustard and fenugreek seeds. Then add the pieces of orange, apple and raisins.Mix well and keep stirring. Then add brown sugar and rest of the spices. Keep on stirring till everything mixes well and the fruits get cooked properly. It should become thick and gooey mass. Allow to cool. Goes well with chapatis.
