Helpful hints

    • Save time by using Trader Joe’s® Mirepoix mix, a pre-chopped, pre-washed container of carrots, celery and onion.
    • Substitute beef or seafood for chicken for variety. If using raw beef, brown it before adding to curry in step 6.
    • For CKD non-dialysis on a lower protein diet, decrease portion to 3/4 cup.
    • Serve over rice for a complete meal.

This is a tasty, versatile dish. I'm not a big fan of meat, so I turn it into a vegetarian curry. Instead of chicken, I add a small diced zucchini, a cup of garbanzos (drained and soaked overnight), a cup of diced potatoes (drained and soaked overnight), and a cup of frozen peas and carrots mix. It's GREAT!

Can the sauce be frozen?

This was pretty good. Used olive oil instead of vegetable and the seasonings never came to a paste. Maybe the oil is why. The apple didn't have much flavor after cooking. I added soaked & boiled potatoes and blanched green beans along with shrimp at the end of cooking. Word to the wise: never add seafood to anything you're going to cook for an hour. It will turn to rubber. Add it at the last few minutes of cooking.

Besides the fact that I never ever seen mushrooms in a chicken, beef, or seafood curry, mushrooms are on our kidney list as high potassium (yes, I love mushrroms too and put a few raw ones on my salad and in my cooking when it works) Mushrooms ar used all the time in East Indian vegetarian dishes. Does the white pepper really make the dish spicey enough? cher183001 Moderator comment: 1/2 cup of raw mushrooms contains 112 mg potassium and 30 mg phosphorus, acceptable for most kidney diets as long as you stay within this portion.

I thought this was really good. I used hot curry powder and forgot to put in the mushrooms.
