A friend of mine from college helped me make this dish, although I was looking for something more spicier, this turned out to be very tasty. He knew I liked curries and he being from Pakistan - who better to teach me. Now every time I make this dish I remember my good friend Ahsad Khan, God rest his soul, he passed away in 94.

Great Flavor! I didn't have apples either but it still turned out terrific! I uped the amount of cayenne pepper to 1/2 tsp( we like it hot ) and also added a 1/4 cup of honey for some sweet to balance out the spice. Thanks Mr. Dan.
