Grilled chicken with apple compote
This dish was inspired by the flavor of kokum, a fruit very common to the Indian west coast, which is used in various dishes to impart a naturally sour taste. When this note of sourness is combined with apple compote, it gives an addictive sweet and sour taste to the dish. A trip to an Indian grocery store or an online source is needed to get the kokum. Although there is not a real substitute for the flavor of kokum, I suggest replacing it with raisins if necessary. I often like to pair this dish with Yellow Pear and Cherry Tomato Salad with Cumin when I’m in the mood for a simple, yet exotic entertainment menu.
