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.
