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

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


  • 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.”
