When you have to do a quick dinner be careful asking your kids what they want. You may be tossed into the deep end! Thursday was one of the those nights as our daughter had another concert for school. It was also my day off so it was grocery day and I usually bring the kids with me to get their input. Which is a safe thing because they don’t pick junk stuff.
So I asked what they would like this time. My son piped up with Curry! Because, you know, it’s a quick and easy dish to make. His words. But I do like a good curry.
And the co-op had fresh turmeric.
In a skillet heat up a tablespoon or so of olive oil and saute chopped onion and chicken until the onions have softened. Then add a few cloves of garlic chopped.
Add a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, chopped bell pepper, and mushrooms. Bring to a simmer. Add a few spoonfuls of red curry paste. Grate about an inch square of fresh turmeric and the same amount of fresh ginger into the curry.
