Apple Mulligatawny

Apple MulligatawnyAn Indian specialty, this well-spiced mulligatawny is awash with flavors, textures and colors like piquant curry paste, tart green apples, butternut squash and smooth coconut milk. With the addition of shredded store-bought roast chicken, this complete family meal assembles in minutes.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup diced carrot
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 tablespoon minced gingerroot
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon curry paste
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
1 cup coconut milk
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups cubed butternut squash
4 cups diced Washington Granny Smith apples
2 cups diced cooked chicken
1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander

Cooking Directions:

  1. In deep skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion, carrot and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender but not browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in gingerroot, garlic, curry paste, salt and pepper and cook one minute.
  2. Pour in coconut milk and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add squash and reduce heat to simmer for 15 minutes. Add apple and chicken and cook just until apples are tender but still hold their shape, about 10 minutes more.
  3. Sprinkle with coriander and serve with warm naan bread or cooked basmati rice.

Makes 2 to 4 servings.

Tip: Replace 1/2 cup of the chicken stock with your favorite dry white wine for an ideal entertaining meal.
