I used to love yellow curry with potato, carrot, & chicken from Thai restaurants.  A while ago my coworker described a simple meal her mother-in-law makes which tastes similar to my favorite Thai dish, but doesn't have coconut or chicken.  I made it from memory for dinner tonight with ground turkey.  If you prefer chicken, roasted turkey, tofu, or no meat at all,  you can use my recipe as a starting point.  If you don't have the exact ingredients or quantities, use what you have; this is a very flexible recipe.  

INGREDIENTS (Yield = 6-8 servings) 

1.25lb ground turkey (or meat/tofu of choice)
8 medium red potatoes, diced
5 medium carrots, sliced 
2 celery stalks, diced
1 large brown onion, diced
1/4 cup ginger, chopped or 1 Tbsp dried
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1 small apple, diced finely or 1/2 cup applesauce (no sugar added)
3 cups water or broth
1 cup frozen peas (optional)
1 tsp salt (optional; use less or omit if you add broth)
3 Tbsp curry powder
olive oil

1.  Brown the turkey meat in a dutch oven or medium stock pot in a little olive oil.  Remove the turkey to a colander once cooked.

2.  Add a little more olive oil to the pot.  Saute the onion, ginger, celery for about a minute.  Add the garlic & saute another minute.

3.  Add the carrots, potatoes, & water.  Return the cooked turkey to the pot.  

5.  Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.  

6.  Add the apple (or applesauce), peas, curry, & salt.  Mix well, cover, & simmer for 15 minutes or until the carrots & potatoes are soft.  

The next time I make this, I will add a whole chili to the pot to add a little spice.

I served this over brown Basmati rice.  I started the rice before preparing the curry ingredients.  This meal took about 35 minutes to prepare & cook.  I love meals like this because they are not difficult or expensive to make, yield alot of food, & make great leftovers.  I'm planning to have a smaller portion for lunch tomorrow with salad.

Enjoy, & let me know what you think if you make this!
