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
