"This is one of my favorite 30-minute weeknight recipes. Turmeric (curcuma) is a bright yellow spice primarily found in India and Indonesia, and is one of the main ingredients in curry. It adds an exotic color and flavor to any dish."

Very good! My husband is a very picky eater and really enjoyed it. I did feel like it needed a little salt. I served it with naan. It was a filling and healthy meal!
