Pretty simple to make. I found the mixture fairly thick, with the consistency of sloppy joes. It really reminded me a lot of a "Thai" version of kheema mattar. Although I might have preferred this with a little lime juice added, I enjoyed this quite a lot. Thanks for posting and good luck in the contest!
First of all, let me start by saying what a tasty dish this is! DH and I really enjoyed it. However, I cannot give it 5 stars because of a few minor details. First of all, the recipe does not state when to add the peas, I just did this along with the sweet potato - worked out fine. Secondly, there is really not enough sauce, what there is just coats the browned turkey. I think upping the coconut milk to 1 1/2 cans is warranted. Also, I feel a little more of the fish sauce and red curry paste could have been added. I ended up doubling both (with the 1 can of coconut milk) to suit our taste. I liked the taste more before the sage was added, but 5 ingredients had to be used and 5 it was. Finally, I think this dish needed to be made a little more 'attractive', perhaps rolling the ground turkey into little meatballs would have helped? It really did look kind of 'sloppy' on the plate. I really, really enjoyed the flavour of this dish, though, and I hope many more try it.:-)
