Curried Apple Soup


What do you do with too many apples???..........

This recipe was born out of the necessity to use the apples lying in my fridge for weeks. No one was ready to eat them; so I decided to make them into a soup :)

Ingredients: Apples - any variety - (chopped)- about 6-8 - small, Oil - 2 tsp + Butter - 1 tbsp, Garlic (chopped) - 4-5cloves, Black pepper - 1/2 tsp, Curry Powder - 1-2 tsp (I used the one we get in American stores/or use madras curry powder from Indian store - do not use Garam Masala), Chicken/Veg stock - 1 can (I used chicken stock as it gives a rich flaor), salt to taste.

Method: Heat a pan, add the oil and butter. Then add the chopped garlic, saute for 1 min and add 1/2 tsp black pepper powder and 1 tsp curry powder. Then add the chopped apples. Saute for 5 mins till apples are soft. Add the chicken/veg stock (adjust according to qty of apples - add some water if you are low on stock). Add salt to taste and the remaining 1 tsp curry powder. Cover and cook for 8-10 mins on med heat. Cool and grind/puree in a jar mixer. Garnish with cilantro.

The soup is ready in a jiffy!! Enjoy on a cold fall day to perk your spirits up!!

Till my next post, take care everyone!!

TIP: Adding a Granny Smith apple with other sweet apples gives a better flavor

Nice. You can also make a pickle with leftover apples. Just like you would with finely sliced mangoes, chilie powder, fenugreek powder, salt and a seasoning. Tastes good.
