Video: Turkey and Potato Curry - Dog Days of Podcasting 2014 - 15/30

Today’s podcast is a look at one of our family favorites, Turkey and Potato Curry. This recipe is included in my Recipes in Rotation Cookbook and also available in this blog post, Recipes in Rotation: Turkey Curry with potatoes and sweet potatoes.

Turkey curry with potatoes and sweet potatoes

Ingredients
3-4 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 pound ground turkey
1 chopped onion
2 chopped garlic cloves
1-2 chopped fresh red chiles (optional) – I substitute a dash of red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp peeled ginger, grated fine
1 cup water
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 Tbsp garam masala
1Tbsp Curry powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
2 large Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
2-4 Roma or other plum tomatoes, diced or 1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup fresh or frozen peas
1/2 cup (loosely packed) chopped cilantro or parsley

Directions

  • Heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a large pot with a lid. When the oil is hot, add the ground meat, spreading it out over the pan.
  • Cook the meat without stirring, until it begins to brown.
  • Add the chopped onion and chiles. Stir and sauté for 4-5 minutes, or until the onion begins to color a bit. Sprinkle salt and pepper over everything.
  • Add the grated ginger and garlic, mix well and sauté for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Mix in the spices and cook them with the meat and vegetable mixture. Watch closely to insure they do not burn.
  • Add water, tomatoes (or tomato sauce) and the potatoes.
  • Stir to combine and cover.
  • Turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
  • When the potatoes are tender add the peas. Mix well and cover the pot. Cook 2-3 minutes.
  • Add salt and pepper, if needed, to taste.
  • Right before you serve, mix in the chopped cilantro. Serve alone or with flatbread or white rice.

What is the Dog Days of Podcasting?

“Essentially, it is a challenge to do a podcast for 30 days in a row.

In 2012 Kreg Steppe was looking to give himself a little push in regards to recording his own personal podcast since he wasn’t recording it very often. That turned into a challenge for himself to record a show everyday for 30 days believing that after 30 days it would turn into a habit. Once it was mentioned to Chuck Tomasi he took the challenge too and they decided it would be a great idea to record starting 30 days before Dragon*Con, culminating with the last episode where they would record it together when they saw each other there.”

Video: New Media 101: Where should you
 

Transcript:

We talk about advertising a lot in the podcasting world and the blogging world and the web world and I often use the analogy of if you are, you have an alpaca farm up in Northern California and you make the world’s best, finest alpaca yarns. Where should you be spending your advertising dollars? Are you going spend your advertising dollars during CSI at 9 o’clock on CBS where less than 1% of the audience wants to hear your message? Or are you better off advertising on a knitting blog or a knitting podcast of which there are probably at least 35 of them a last count I saw in the iTunes Podcast Directory – where 99% of the people want to hear your message. That’s what the power of blogging, the power of web sites, the power of New Media brings to you. it’s talking to the people who want to hear your message. In fact, through the search engines, they’re seeking you out. They’re coming to your site saying, “Oh, they do accounting consulting. They do computer consulting. They do life coaching. Through a search engine they found your web site. The trouble is, your web site has to be out there telling people that’s what you do so that the search engine find you and presents your results to these people so that they can then come to your web site.
