Apple Curry

I seem to have a habit of not going to the grocery store, and thus, not having any food in my house. Then, I get home from work and am starving, but have nothing to make. I scour my sparsely stocked fridge, freezer, and cupboards for some semblance of ingredients.

This dish came about because I had some apples in the fridge that were going to go bad if I didn’t eat them. I didn’t have any flour, so I couldn’t make apple muffins or cookies. I also didn’t have any oats, so I couldn’t make an apple crisp. And, I really needed something for dinner, not dessert! So…Apple Curry was born.

This is a pretty simple recipe, with limited ingredients. It was easy to prepare and didn’t need that much attention while cooking. I paired it up with Minute Multi-Grain Rice & Quinoa Medley that Nathan had won at the Disneyland Half Expo! Minute Rice was a vendor! I like this blend because it has no added ingredients, and comes in portioned bags. I would certainly buy it, if I ever make it to a grocery store…



3-4 green apples, diced

1  1/2 cups water

1/2 onion, finely chopped

1 teaspoon minced garlic (2 cloves)

2 Tablespoons yellow curry powder + 3 Tablespoons water

1 teaspoon honey or agave

1 Tablespoon vegan butter or oil

Chili powder, to taste



1. Fry onion and garlic in a large saute pan until browned.

2. Mix curry powder plus water, honey, oil, and chili powder in a small bowl and then add to the saute pan.

3. Add apples and 1 1/2 cup water (or enough water to almost cover the apples) and bring to a boil.

4. Let the apple curry simmer for about 30 minutes until the water is mostly evaporated and the apples are cooked through.

5. Serve with rice or quinoa

The apples are ready to simmer.

This curry was a good change from my normal vegetable curries. I really enjoyed the sweetness of the apples, but they little kick from the chili powder! Now, time to go grocery shopping!

One thought on “Apple Curry”
  1. Apples sound good in curry. I made a butternut squash soup the other day and added apples and it tasted great.
