Yes, you read the title right. I realized that Granny Smith (green) apples marry well with our Indian spices. My first experiment was with making a chutney, Andhra style, Green Apple Pickle.
Then recently, when I was looking for some interesting recipes from celebrity chefs, I landed at Martha Stewart's space and found this curry very interesting.
My older one's reaction after I told her that since she wasn't eating her fruits regularly, I made this curry with apples was "What?? I should have known you would do something like this!!". But since she liked the curry and had multiple servings of it, she couldn't say anything much :).
And the husband happily ate the curry thinking it was potatoes! Apart from the curry, we enjoyed the laughs arising out of it!
So here it is for Day 3 of BM #33.
