While apples are the perfect autumn food, as temperatures drop and daylight becomes scarce, sometimes the cool energy of a raw apple just doesn’t provide the warmth and nourishment that your body needs. I have found that frying apples in ghee with a little spice is a great way to warm up this cool, astringent fruit and make it a little more comforting. This makes a lovely breakfast or mid-afternoon snack. Here’s how!
Masala Fried Apples
2 whole apples
1 T ghee
1/8-1/4 tsp garam masala powder
Thin slice two apples. You can core the apple first, or just cut around the core. I like to use honey crisp apples, but a number of varieties will work. Heat 1 T ghee in a frying pan. Add 1/8-1/4 tsp of garam masala powder (depending on your spice threshold) to the heated ghee, and put on medium. Add the apples and cover. Stir occasionally. Allow the apples to fry for five minutes or until they are soft. This is a great stand-alone light meal, or consider frying dates and/or walnuts right along with the apples.
