Serving Size:
1-1/2 cups

    Diet Types:
  • CKD non-dialysis
  • Diabetes
  • Dialysis


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


  1. Mince garlic and ginger. Finely chop carrots, celery, and onion. Slice mushrooms. Chop apple.
  2. Combine flour, garlic, ginger, curry powder and vegetable oil in a non-stick, deep skillet (at least 4 quarts) over a medium heat.
  3. Stir until curry becomes paste-like.
  4. Slowly add broth, and stir until sauce is smooth.
  5. Add vegetables, apple and white pepper.
  6. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 15 minutes, or until well blended.

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.
