Busy week, and I think I'm catching a cold. When that happens, I like a lot of Indian curries. There's something comforting about a big bowl of stewed, spicy food on rice.

This was a Turkey Kofta Curry that I piled on jasmine rice. Koftas are meatballs of finely ground lamb, beef, or chicken. I used ground turkey and piled the meat high with poppy seeds, pureed onion, coriander, ginger, and garam masala. The sauce was a mix of nonfat, plain yogurt and tomato paste with more garam masala and topped with fresh cilantro leaves. When you have a creamy or tomato curry like this, use jasmine rice. It smells wonderful and goes with the sauce so well, I don't mind when the meatballs are gone.

The photo's kind of screwy because I barely snapped this before Bobbers and I gobbled it up.
