Hi I am a Trinidadian and you can also curry corn it taste good
I just whacked this together in a slow cooker with about 16 red apples (had a heap of old ones to use up) will be interesting to see how it turns out
Ooo, and if you’re going store-bought on the roti, we really enjoyed this paired with Kawan wheat meal chapati, which we pick up from a local Indian store. Not homemade (nor do I know how it compares to Trini roti), but a pretty good stand-in for scooping up curry!
We left it “bare bones” as Elise calls it, for the most part, adding just a pinch of smoked paprika at the end. The tartness of the Granny Smith really set this one apart for me. My husband devoured his too but remarked that he would have enjoyed it more with a protein, like some thinly sliced pork or chicken, but he says that frequently when we go veg. :) Thanks, Elise!
Hi Taryn, I think of this curry as a side, not something that would replace a protein dish. Almost like a condiment curry. ~Elise
Wow, never thought of doing a fruit curry before but could be worth giving a shot. I see someone mentioned Granny Smiths being too tart–any recs for substitute apple?
Also, regarding the curry powder–not all curries are the same. I’d recommend (if you have access) the Madras-style curry (common in Trini & Guyanese cooking) or even the Blue Mountain brand for a more authentic Caribbean taste. I’ve tried using Indian curry powder in a pinch (not that many Caribbean stores in Cali’s Bay Area) and it works in a pinch but it’s really not the same.
Thanks for featuring Caribbean cuisine!
Made this the other night and it was simply amazing! Love it. Definitely a keeper.
I made this last night, and it’s definitely a keeper recipe! It was very simple to make and my family gobbled it up. I left the garlic in and it tasted great to me.
I was excited to try this recipe, but neither my wife nor I ended up liking it. We eat curries often, but we usually go for a sweeter apple than granny smiths. Perhaps we are just not used to the sour taste. Luckily we had plenty of rotis to nibble on!
Our local papaer printed a recipe for a curried apple chicken saute last week. It had apples and onions with curry, cinnamon and smoked paprika. Absolutely delicious. Interesting how similar ingredients seem to pop up at the same time in different places. I never would have thought to put curry and apples together before a week ago!
Looks so great. I frequent a Guyanese restaurant near me. Their food is similar to Trini food. The owner makes rotis with the addition of cumin seed for her doubles – which is chickpea curry sandwiched between the small round rotis, and topped with her homemade tamarind sauce. I am completely addicted to them. She also makes larger rotis which you can have stuffed with the various curries she makes, which include saltfish and potato, another one of my faves.

Thanks for sharing with us ~ looks fabulous!
The curry looks delicious! and love the integration of fruit in meals. We’ve tried mango curry before but haven’t had apple curry yet~ this recipe will give us the perfect chance to try it.
Thank you for sharing.
Hi, Here are some of different types of Indian breads/ roti’s recipies I have posted it in my blog… please have a look….
Mmm…sounds good. Had a wonderfull time in Tobago just a hop skip and a jump from Trinidad and did enjoy some Roti as well…although I couldn’t bring myself to eat the ‘Cow Heal Soup’.
Would you mind asking Trini, in Speyside all of the resteraunts served a shrimp dish with some sort of chili sauce but I couldn’t get any to give up the recipe. I’ve searched online for a few years finding some recipes for shrimp with chili sauce but none that lived up. With having it 5 times in 3 places at least while I was there I’m hoping maybe he knows someone who can at least tell me what it was called to find the recipe if he doesn’t know what it is at all? :)
Indian bread has got lots of variety of which most widely used in daily cooking is Indian Roti or Chapati its the same.
INDIAN CHAPATI RECIPE
2 cups Wheat Flour (Gehun Ka Atta)
Water as per requirement
How to make chapati:
• Knead soft dough with above ingredients.
• Leave it for atleast 30 minutes.
• Break off to a table tennis – ball sized (even smaller) bit of dough.
• Roll with help of dry flour to a thin round.
• Roll as thin as possible.
• Heat tawa and place phulka on it.
• When dry on one side, turn it.
• When brown spots appear on second side, turn again.
• Use a kitchen towel and lightly press the phulka, rotating at same time, it will puff.
• Make as crisp as desired.
• Serve hot.
Roti Recipe, I’ve tried this one and it’s a proper skin.
One part of the recipe I don’t understand: *discard* the garlic? that is a new one to me. If leaving it all in would be overpowering, why not use less? Can you explain?
You only want the garlic to flavor the oil a little in this version of the recipe. Obviously you don’t need to discard the garlic, you can save the pieces and eat them as a snack. Or if you want, just keep them in the curry, if you want more garlic flavor in your curry. ~Elise
I love that you took a simple approach to this dish and didn’t feel the urge to try and spruce it up. I love curry, as does my family. I hope to give this one try real soon. would you serve this as a side dish or a main course…or do you think it could even be served as a starter?
i love the recipe and reminds me of chutney.Add shrimp & chopped(about quarter size pieces) potato,skip the apples and half the sugar and two bay leaves. i don’t measure because quantity depends on how many peeps are coming to eat.curry is a personal taste. my family fell in love with curry mix from capetown,sa; a 24hr+ flight! go figure
what the heck? i just made an apple/curry dish. mine was chinese broccoli and apples in a curried peanut sauce. garilc, onion, lime and fresh ginger rounded out the flavors; no sugar added this time. :)
this looks good too!
