    EagleRocker's Note:

    I found this is the back of Working Mother magazine. It was taken from Tonia George's, "One-Bowl Meals", its was adapted by Kelly Staikpooulos. It was so easy to make and had incredible flavor. My husband thought it was better than some restaurants we've been to!

      We really enjoyed this! The yogurt sauce was delicious and the curry was mild and nice. We served this curry over brown basmati rice and skipped the chutney and the cilantro. Perhaps the taste was to mild for my preference. We liked this a lot, thanks.

      My husband made this the other night and it was awesome. He was worried because he's made another curry dish which I found to be too spicy, but he used a regular (not 'hot') curry and this recipe was spicy-"flavorful" not spicy-"so hot my nose is running." He was also nervous about using so many onions, but it was perfect. Great mix of flavors, and good for you too. We found at the last minute we only had a pound of ground turkey, and it worked great- we're thinking of making it that way next time, actually. We didn't have a cucumber, but put yougert on the dish and served it over rice. Thanks for a very yummy curry dish with a great mix of flavors that uses ingredients we have around all the time.
