1 large unpeeled tart apple, such as Granny Smith
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander

Quarter, core, and slice the apple into ¼-inch-thick pieces; set aside. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat.
