Green Apple Curry is a Sri Lankan curry recipe. It is a simple, quick and easy recipe. This dish is prepared using green apple, coconut milk and few basic spicies. The sweetness and sourness of apples go so well with the earthy spiciness of the curry powder to create this truly warm and comforting savoury dish. It is a spicy curry with slightly sweet and sour taste.

I have used the Sri Lankan curry powder in making this curry, however if you cannot source it, you can use the curry powder which is available in your local grocery.

What I love about this curry is that, it is an easy and simple preparation yet full of flavour with wild tartness from the green apple. The coconut milk along with the curry powder adds amazing flavour to the dish.

Sri Lankan Green Apple Curry is amazingly tasty! You should definitely try it, especially if you could hold on some stock of green apples. I am sure this recipe won’t disappoint you and would love it as much as I did 🙂.

Green Apple Curry can be accompanied with rice or any flatbread. I enjoyed them with steam basmati rice. So without wasting your time any further, let’s head on to the recipe and have a look at the ingredients and method on how to make this amazing green apple curry.
