Apple curry chicken


I overheard two ladies chatting at my usual market place and one of them said she recently made curry chicken with red apple and it was just delicious,  The other lady looked at her in awe and so did I.  I only heard that the apple which was used in lieu of the usual potatoes must be crunchy.  Curiosity prompted me to experiment with this and here's my version of Curry chicken with Apple and sugarless Soymilk.





This curry chicken was light, not too spicy and the apples were still crunchy when taken the next day.  If you've never tried adding fruits to a curry, give this a shot and see the result.

Recipe for Apple curry chicken
Ingredients

1 free range chicken about 700 gm, cut into bite size
4 pips garlic
15 shallots
a small knob of ginger
2 to 3 stalks of lemon grass/serai, smashed
15 gm Baba's meat curry powder
1 cup water
1 cup sugarless soymilk
2 red crunchy apples, peeled, cored and cut into cubes
Some curry leaves
Seasalt to taste

Preparation

1.  Marinate the chicken pieces with the curry powder and some sea salt.  Set aside for 2 hours.
2.  Pound the garlic, shallots and ginger and saute with some oil and curry leaves till fragrant.
3.  Mix in the marinated meat, fry for a while and add in 1 cup water.
4.  Bring to a boil and simmer till chicken is cooked through.
5.  Pour in 1 cup of soymilk and diced apples,
     simmer for a minute or two, add seasalt to taste.
     Turn off heat.
6.  Dish out and serve with white rice or bread.

Note :  Once the soymilk is added, do not bring to a boil for the heat will cause the soymilk to curdle, just simmer.

    What type of pears are they? China pears or Peckham pears, but don't think they'll taste good if they've turned soft. Maybe you can make use of them in other ways.

    Yes, try once and see whether it suits your palate.

    Thank you, weird combo, right? I've been using soymilk in my curries and bakes for quite some time.

  9. This really sounds close to perfect. Apples tame the heat of curry and I really like the recipe you've shared with us today. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  13. A very healthy version of curry! I am sure the apples added some sweetness to the gravy!

  14. The sweet-tartness of apples should balance the curry spice quite well. I have tried apples in curry chicken before but have not tried adding soymilk.

    Yes, it does. I used soymilk because it's not so heavy as coconut milk. You can try and see whether you like it or not.

Pandan Coconut Milk Bread ~ 香兰椰奶面包

  I made  this bread using the Wool Roll bread recipe and just substituted milk with coconut milk, added a bit of pandan paste and instead of melted butter, I used cooking oil.  Feel free to use coconut oil if you have it at hand.  This bread is soft and light and it stayed fresh till after the third day in a container, at room temperature.  You can eat it on its own accompanied with a cup of hot kopi O or slathered with butter and in my case, peanut butter.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too!
