Green Apple Curry

Just a standard yellow curry powder mix will do here. Use your favorite.

  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Cook time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 large garlic cloves, smashed and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 Tbsp yellow curry powder
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 4 tart green Granny Smith apples, cored and roughly chopped (peel ON)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp, packed, brown sugar

Method

1 Infuse the oil with garlic: Heat the oil in a large sauté pan on medium heat. Add the garlic and let cook until the garlic starts to get browned. Use a slotted spoon to remove the garlic from the oil. Discard (or eat as a snack) the garlic.

2 Cook the onions: Add the chopped onions to the pan and let cook until translucent (about 4 minutes).

3 Make curry paste, add to onions, add butter: While the onions are cooking, in a small bowl, mix together the curry powder and 2 tablespoons of water. Stir with a spoon until you have a smooth, thin paste. Once the onions are translucent, stir in the curry paste. Let bubble and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the butter.

4 Add apples, water, brown sugar: Add the chopped apples and salt to the pan. Add 1 1/2 cups of water, or enough water to just almost cover the apples. Stir in the brown sugar.

5 Simmer until thickened and cooked through: Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Let cook, uncovered, on a low simmer for 30 minutes, until thickened and cooked through. Add more water if needed if the mixture starts to stick to the pan.

Traditionally served with soft roti bread. In place of roti you can serve it with a warmed flour tortilla, pita bread, or over rice.
