Green Apple and Pomegranate Pachadi

1 -1 12 cup fresh pomegranate seeds
2 cups diced granny smith apples (I leave the skin on)
12 cup red onion, thinly sliced
2 -3 cloves garlic, minced
4 -5 green chilies, split (depends on how hot you want it)
5 cups plain yogurt
1 inch fresh gingerroot, finely chopped
2 teaspoons mustard seeds (divided)
salt, to taste
chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
1 tablespoon oil, for sauteeing


Saute red onions, ginger, garlic and green chillies in a saucepan with oil. Add salt for seasoning; then add 1 teaspoon mustard seed. Mix again. Place in another bowl and reserve. Take the yogurt, place into a large bowl and whip well. Grind remaining 1 teaspoon mustard seed with a mortar and pestle and add to yogurt. Add the sauteed onion mixture to the yogurt. Saute the apples in the same saucepan until softened (I generally do not add more oil. ). Add the apples to the yogurt mixture along with the pomegranate seeds. Mix well and season with salt to taste; garnish with freshly chopped cilantro. Mix well and refrigerate until chilled.
