Curry Sauce

Karen, a DaVita renal dietitian from California, spices up the kidney diet with a hearty Curry Sauce that can be paired with seafood, chicken or beef. Sugar-free and made with low-sodium broth, this sauce is perfect for people managing kidney disease. Karen’s Curry Sauce is versatile, kidney-friendly and a great way to add some heat to meat.

Diet types:

  • CKD non-dialysis
  • Dialysis
  • Diabetes


Recipe created by dialysis patient Anthony, and submitted by DaVita renal dietitian Karen from California.

Portions: 6     Serving size: 1-1/2 cups

Ingredients

    • 3 tablespoons all-purpose white flour
    • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
    • 2 tablespoons curry powder
    • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 32 ounces low-sodium chicken stock
    • 1/3 cup carrots, finely chopped
    • 1/3 cup celery, finely chopped
    • 1/3 cup onion, finely chopped
    • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
    • 1 cup apple, chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
    • 1-1/2 pounds boneless chicken

Preparation

    1. Combine flour, garlic, ginger, curry powder and vegetable oil in a non-stick, deep skillet (at least 4 quarts) over a medium heat.
    2. Stir until curry becomes paste-like.
    3. Slowly add broth, and stir until sauce is smooth.
    4. Add vegetables, apple and white pepper.
    5. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 15 minutes, or until well blended.
    6. Bring sauce to a boil and add seafood, chicken or beef.
    7. NOTE: If using raw beef, brown it before adding to curry in step 6, otherwise just add your protein option to curry directly, as in step 6.
    8. Simmer curry for 1-1/2 hours over a low heat, stirring regularly and serve.

Renal and renal diabetic food choices

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.
    • For CKD non-dialysis on a lower protein diet, decrease portion to 3/4 cup.
    • Serve over rice for a complete meal.

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.
