The Recipe:

Fall Into This Apple Coconut Curry Dish from Easy Indian

By:  Ari  Bendersky  Abe's Market Contributor  September 18th, 2013

Sure you can get apples year round, but fall is peak apple season and is the optimal time to eat and cook with apples. The best part of fall for me, other than wearing great sweaters and watching the leaves change color, is getting to indulge in my favorite honeycrisp apples. Their crunchy juiciness is unparalleled in the apple world. Sure that's just my opinion, but as someone who has been eating apple since red delicious was seemingly the only available variety, I've sampled a lot of apples.

If you like to cook with apples, an apple pie is an obvious choice. Not so obvious? Curry. But thanks to our friends at Easy Indian, you can whip together a simply prepared dish layered with flavors like coconut, coriander, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, clove and garlic with their Madras Coconut Curry spice blend. 

Easy Indian's Madras Coconut Curry with Apples


  • 3 T oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 envelope Easy Indian Madras Coconut Curry spice blend
  • 4 1/2 cups protein of your choice (chicken, beef, tofu, lamb, etc), cubed & assorted vegetables, diced (we used celery, peas, red bell peppers and carrots)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water (for thinner curry)
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup apples, diced (if it wasn't clear, we love honeycrisps)


  1. In a sauté pan, heat oil on medium.
  2. Add onions and sauté until tender.
  3. Mix in Easy Indian Madras Coconut Curry spice blend and stir for 15-30 seconds.
  4. Mix in protein, vegetables, coconut milk, water and salt. 
  5. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes (stirring occasionally to ensure even cooking).
  6. Add apples and simmer for additional 5 minutes.
  7. Serve with naan or rice and enjoy.
