Chambakka Kichadi (love Apple Salad With Curd)

Love apples are commonly used for preparing pickle. We have a love apple tree at home and so I try out new dishes using love apple. I have tried this salad using love apple and it turned to be good. This is an easy to make salad and is best when served with rice.
