Kashmiri Curried Apple

Yessss..You read it right, Kashmiri Curried Apple-apples in a curry form.It may sound strange & weird, but believe me the curry is very simple yet delicious with rice or rotis.Although every time apples are eaten raw, this time for a change I tried this.
When I first tried this, none of my family members could guess the secret ingredient rightly.This recipe is adapted from my dear friend, Uma's space.She has taken the recipe from a book'Pats India Food & Cooking'.Thanx to Uma for sharing such an authentic dish.I already have tried this curry twice now and kids will surely love it.It has a perfect blend of sweet, sour & spicy tastes and tastes like sweet pumpkin. Do give this a try to surprise everyone:-)
