    cooking steps of apple raisin chutney
  • Turn the heat to low and allow it to simmer until all the excess liquid is evaporated and the chutney begins to turn thick. Once the apple raisin chutney has begun to turn thick, turn off the heat.
  • Let the chutney cool down to room temperature. Then spoon the Apple Raisin Chutney into clean, dry, glass jars and seal with the lid.
  • Store the Apple Raisin Chutney in the refrigerator.


  • You can finely chop the apples as well. I like the texture of grated apples in the chutney. 
  • Adjust the amount of sugar according to the sweetness/tartness of apples. 
  • The consistency of apple chutney is semi-thick with a coarse texture. 
  • If the raisins are of small size, no need to chop them. Add the whole raisins.
  • In place of dry red chili, you can add the red paprika powder as well.
