Turkey & Vegetable Curry

I am a huge fan of curry dishes of any kind. And fortunately, my family is too. This dish is another example of a meal that is perfect for stolen moments-style cooking. The flavors will develop while it sits in the refrigerator and the reheated dish tastes better at dinnertime than if it had been served immediately. However, it still tastes great if you eat it right away too.

You can also play around with the meat and veggies used for this meal. Chicken or shrimp would be perfect in place of the turkey, or the meat could even be left out altogether.Turkey & Vegetable Curry
