"This was a quick, easy, and delicious meal that my entire family enjoyed! The curry flavor was very mild, which was nice for the kids. Next time, I would add a second apple to enhance the flavor. We used raisins and coconut as a garnish, and next time I think we'll try adding some chopped peanuts for extra texture. Otherwise, it was a great dish!"

"I added an extra apple, put raisins in to cook with the recipe instead of as a garnish and added more curry. My family liked it a lot. The second time I made it I substituted boneless chicken thighs for the pork, and we liked it better."

"Pork and apple curry is one my family simply loves and makes any time they can. It's usually served over rice, which is just fine with all of us, as we love rice dishes."
