Curried Ground Turkey with Potatoes

Curried Ground Turkey with Potatoes has become a staple for my family. I discovered it last year while looking at foodily and I am so glad I stopped to put it on my "to make" list.

Everyone in the family likes this dish and we also like to have the leftovers for breakfast the next day. As you can see, we top the curried ground turkey with potatoes with a fried egg.

It. Is. Delicious.

This is not a spicy curry (unless you want to make it hot) and the curry flavor is not overwhelming, so even if you think you don't like curry I would encourage you to try this dish.

I have adapted this recipe from Simply Recipes.

Curried Ground Turkey with Potatoes.
Adapted from Simply Recipes
3-4 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 pound ground turkey (or substitute ground pork)
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp grated garlic
2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 Tbsp garam masala
1/2 Tbsp curry powder
1 tsp tumeric
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 cup water
2 large pototoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
4 Roma tomatoes, cut into small chunks or 1 can of diced tomatoes (15 oz)
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper

Heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Once the oil is hot add the ground meat. Break the meat up and cook until it begins to brown.
Add the chopped onion. Stir and cook for 4-5 minutes, until the onion starts cook through.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add the grated garlic and ginger and saute for another 1-2 minutes.
Add the garam masala, curry powder, tumeric, cumin, coriander, water and potatoes. Stir to combine then cover with a lid (or a pizza pan if you don't have a lid for your skillet). Turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes, until the potatoes are fork tender.
Add tomatoes, peas and corn. Cover and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Top each serving with cilantro and a fried egg. This can also be served with bread or rice.
