Just open the fridge and go to town making this throw-together curry. We prefer turkey, but if you like chicken, shrimp, even bean sprouts and carrots, by all means, add them. —Lauren Rush, Clark, New Jersey

"Very good. I think next time we might just leave out a little curry and cilantro, and kick up more of the asian flavors instead of indian. Still, VERY good."

"I substituted chicken breast for turkey, because it was on sale. This was a quick and easy meal. I had all the meat cooked and ingredients combined in the time it took to finish cooking the rice. Overall a good level of heat and curry flavor."

"I cooked this meal for my husband any myself. I didn't have turkey on hand so I used chicken breast instead. It was very easy to make and we had almost everything on hand. It does take a little more time than suggested as you have to cook your meat and the brown rice first. Overall, this was a great dish and we really enjoyed it! :)"
