You will never find this curry on the menu anywhere in India. This is Indo-Continental version. Curries are made using curry powder to give an Indian touch in the western countries. I was reluctant to taste it thinking it will have a sweetish taste because of the apples added to it. But believe me, it was really tasty. Here is the recipe. This curry is mild with no chillies. I have given the original version. You may add chillies and make some variations if you wish to..
Chicken ..... 250 gms. ( boneless - cut into cubes )
Apples ............. 2 ( peeled, cored & diced)
Onions .... 1 cup ( chopped)
Garlic ...... 3 -4 cloves (minced)
Ginger .... 1 tsp. ( grated )
Coriander powder .... 1 tsp.
Cumin powder ... ..... 1 tsp.
Curry powder .......... 1 tbsp.
Tomatoes .......... 1 cup (diced)
Chicken stock /broth ... 1/2 cup ( if you don't have you can use water instead)
Yogurt or sour cream ... 3 tbsp.
Oil .............. 2 tbsp.
Salt ............. to taste.
1. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a pan. Stir fry the chicken until half done. Remove and set it aside.
2. Add the remaining oil and saute the onions until golden.
3. Add the ginger, garlic and the spice powders. Stir fry for a minute.
4. Now add the tomatoes and apples. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
5. Add the chicken and the stock ( or water). Taste for salt. Simmer and cook until done.
6. Stir in the yogurt or sour cream.
