Madras fruit sauce

Great generic Indian flavour – can be very well used for all sorts of traditional dishes (I use it with Krokiety, for example), and wonderful with the vegetarian discipline like Kopytka, rice of any colour.. In vegetarian implementation you may want to use water in place of chicken of beef stock.

For about 1.5 Litre of sauce you need

  • 250 ml of apple with skin, cut into small chunks
  • 125 ml ripe banana
  • 250 ml chopped red pepper
  • 250 ml chopped green pepper
  • 125 ml green celery (did i already say chopped?)
  • 125 ml of chopped onion
  • 30 ml of canola oil (although any veg oil will do)
  • 15 ml  flour
  • 15 ml of minced garlic
  • 30 ml  of Madras Curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 l of liquid. it may be chicken or beef stock, water (this will depend on how the sauce is to be used..
  • 1 tsp of corn or potato starch in a little water
  1. Chop apples, peppers, celery, banana, and onion finely, but not into a cream. I use food processor, short runs,
  2. Heat up oil in a heavy pot, big enough to holds all veggies – flat is preferred.
  3. Saute all vegetables, do not brown them.
  4. Add the flour and seasonings, mix well.
  5. Add the liquid, stir, and cook gently for about 1 hour.
  6. Add starch mixed in water, bring to boil.
  7. Verify seasoning to taste.
  8. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring carefully

Ready when cool!
