Rose Apple Raita

Hi Friends!! As promised in the Mystery file #2, here is a simple recipe that uses the mystery ingredient- Star apple / Rose apple...

 Last month I chanced upon a fruit that I was looking for. I had initially seen it in this blog and was wondering what it was. I had never seen it until then. After a few days, I saw it in a road side cart but could not stop due to the heavy traffic so I came home disappointed. A couple of days later luck favored me and I was able to buy this fruit in another place. It cost INR 40 for 250 grams. The fruit was sour and crunchy.We loved it. It tasted great with a mix of chilli powder and salt dusted over it!!!

 As soon as I go this, I wanted to make the raita I has seen in Krishnaveni's blog and here it is now....




I used:

Star apple / Rose apple -10 numbers, de-seeded and chopped
Onion - 1, small , finely chopped
Fresh Yogurt 2 cups
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves a few
Mint leaves to garnish


  1. In a bowl whisk yogurt and salt.
  2. Add the chopped star apple and onion to the yogurt.
  3. Heat oil in a small pan and put in the mustard, cumin seeds and curry leaves.
  4. When the mustard pops pour over the yogurt mixture.
  5. Mix well and serve garnished with mint leaves / chopped coriander leaves.




I have one more recipe using this fruit. Will share it in the coming days.....

Bon Appetit...
