When I located this recipe on kylling tikka masala med æbler on the home-page on "Sæson for god smag", I knew at once, that I needed to make this specific dish as it involved the use of apples. I still have plenty of apples from my very family apple tree in my little park, when though I am doing my best eating an apple a day (in order to keep the doctor away). And at the same time making this dish meant, that I could make extra portions for those weekday evenings, where the cooking needs to as easy as possible.
I have made no changes to the original recipe.
