“I got this recipe from a friend who is from Bethlehem. The flavors are just delicious. The possibilities of add-ins are endless. Ground beef, lamb, or pork may be used instead of turkey.”

WOW this recipe was amazing! I sauteed a small onion with the garlic and used curry powder instead of the coriander and tumeric, because the first two ingredients of curry powder are coriander and tumeric!!! I also halved the recipe and it was perfect for about 5 people. I added some fresh chopped tomatoes and some sliced olives. Don't bother using one whole bunch of parsley and cilantro, I just used about 2 tbsp. of each and it was PLENTY!!! If I would have used anymore, it would have been overpowering. My hubby loved this recipe and he is so picky and hard to please, so when he says something is good, it must be really good!!! Thanks so much for the recipe! Next time I make it I will try grilled chicken pieces instead of the ground turkey.

I make this recipe vegetarian by leaving out the turkey and using vegetable broth instead of chicken. I also add a coarsely chopped onion. I love it!!! I eat it for dinner, then have leftovers for lunch a couple days. I've also frozen it with success.

For more flavor, I doubled the amount of spices, and then drizzled cilantro-spiked yogurt sauce on top (2 cups plain whole-milk yogurt, 3/4 c finely chopped cilantro, 2 tbsp lemon juice)- a MUST. I also added roasted cauliflower (tossed in oil, salt & pepper, 450 for 30 min, then 500 for 10 until caramelized) and melted onions (with oil, low heat 20 min).
