    rpgaymer's Note:

    This recipe was somewhat inspired by Banriona's Shawarma Spiced Shepherds Cottage Pie, which I thought was a great Americanized twist on a classic Lebanese recipe. In the same vein, this is like a flavorful Indian curry crossed with a traditional stew. No rice or naan needed, as it's very filling. Perfect for a cold winter night!

      This is a wonderful and easy to make curry! You took the rather tame flavors of ground turkey and sweet potatoes and really elevated them with all those spices. I used a jalapeno instead of the serrano as that's what I had on hand. The peas were a great addition to this too and you're right - it's very hearty, no rice needed ;) Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      We really enjoyed this more unusual curry, I particularly liked the sweet potato, love sweet potato in curry and enjoyed the bright color! I used ground chicken, since that was what the supermarket had. As with most curries, flavours blend and improve over time, my DH had plenty left for lunch the next day and pronounced it excellent. I served this over rice, like my rice, and also made it go further! Another winner, rp, made for PRMR tag game
