    I made this 2 days ago for my husband and myself. We just finished leftovers and immediately made another batch. Delicious, we love it!

    “Long Time Listener, First Time ‘Reviewer.’” Simply outstanding and so easy. My family loved it!!!! I do agree with two adjustments (mentioned in a few reviews), a cup vs half cup of liquid and use broth vs water.

    Elise, you have inspired me as a cook…I use your site and recipes often and have for 10 years. Thank you!!! I look to you often for a new dish OR a way to use the bits and pieces in the fridge. Following your family affair has created a house of foodies filled with line cooks (me) and Chefs (my kids).

    Again, thank you.

    I used my leftovers from Thanksgiving so the cooking process changed. I added more fresh sautéed onions and more garlic. I added more spices per ratio of veggies. Basically, I used this as a guideline and it came out amazing!!

    This was a hit with my family. 1 yr old and 4 yr old scarfed it. I skipped the chili as we are heat wimps, and used a full cup of chicken broth instead of water. Used half rutabaga, half small yellow potatoes, and served over rice. Next time I might pre-steam the root veg to cut down on cooking time, I was worried I was going to overcook the turkey and so the rutabaga was still a bit firm. Came together quite quickly so this would be a good weeknight option with a bit of advance prep you can have it ready by the time the rice is done.

    Great weekday supper dish. I added a little extra spice and a cup of water as it looked a bit dry it it tasted really good, I am a big fan of ground turkey.

    This was really good. I changed it by using ground chicken, yellow curry, red curry powder mix, paprika. I still added the galam masala, coriander and added twice amount of ginger, garlic and didn’t have any tomatoes or cumin. I also put the spices in with the oil, ginger garlic, onions to increase the flavor of the spices. Great inspirational with what I can do with ground chicken or turkey. Thanks for sharing.

    Needed to have more liquid…I think I’ll add a half a can of diced can tomatoes. I am sitting here while my husband added ketchup. He couldn’t wait for me to doctor it up. Oh well. Lol

    Very tasty dish and now added as a firm favourite. I think it will also be nice added to a salad .

    this was delicious, made with chicken broth instead of water.. used a little more liquid but the rest of the recipe was the same. Loved!!!

    So happy with this recipe. I used red potatoes with the skin on, tikka masala instead of garam masala, and some ginger powder and ginger juice since I didn’t have fresh. Used chicken broth instead of water, probably more like 1.5 cups, and I didn’t have any parsley or cilantro. Lol. Still, it came out great! It was so easy, only took one pan, and satisfied my Indian food craving without all the heavy dairy or coconut that’s usually used. Ate it over some steamed cabbage, which is my go-to instead of rice. It would have been good on its own. Thanks for the recipe! I’ll definitely make it again. I also think it’s a great starting point for pretty much endless small changes to bring a lot of new variety to the stuff I usually cook.

    Should you still use the full amount of water if you halve the recipe? 1/4 cup got absorbed right away – and i wasn’t sure if the potatoes needed more water to cook, or if it would water down the flavor…

      Hi M, since so much of the water gets evaporated, I think you should stick to the 1/2 cup of the full recipe, even when doing a half recipe.

        This came out so tasty!!! I used ground lamb instead of turkey – and just inhaled it. I even ate the leftovers for lunch the next day with a little Greek yogurt mixed in (and I don’t usually eat leftovers). Next time I won’t be scared of the spice and I’ll add a little red chili as recommended. Definitely will make again!!

  13. Kathy

    SOOOOOO GOOD! Substituted powdered ginger, sweet peppers and frozen corn (that’s want I had on hand). Will make again!

    My mom made a dish like this with hamburger when I was growing up. The recipe called it Pakistani Kima. One of our favorites.

    This is delicious!!! I didn’t have the coriander so I added curry, it seemed like a large measurements for the spices but it was delicious I also took one potato away and added zuccini :D

    • Elise Bauer

      I’m so glad you liked it Frances! Love the addition of zucchini.

      • Sharon

        You have to add a lot of items to this!! You must have a side, as it doesnt make enough!!

    I love this recipe, it is pure comfort food and goes in my meal rotation! I used part garam masala and part curry and did not add cilantro or parsley because I did not have any on hand. I used 2 small gold potatoes and 1 red potatoe and the larger amount of tomatoes.

    Can you freeze this?

    • Elise Bauer

      Hi Lorna, I haven’t tried freezing it but I don’t see why it wouldn’t freeze well!

      • Holly Dull

        I froze what we did not finish and the leftovers ended up being an easy dinner on a busy night!
