Peel and mince the garlic cloves and ginger.
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat and saute the onions in it until transparent. Add the curry powder, cinammon, bay leaves and cumin, together with the minced garlic and ginger and continue to saute for about a minute. Add the diced apple and cook until lightly caramelized.
Drain the peas and add to the pot, add the vegetable broth and simmer gently over a low flame for about 30 minutes.
