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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
