Turkey Meatball Curry

Turkey Meatball Curry With Coconut Milk

I love the combination of curry and coconut milk. The heat from the curry and the cooling creaminess of the coconut milk pair so well together. My kids hate anything spicy, so I don’t add a lot of curry, but I think it’s important for them to try different spices, even if it’s just a little bit.

Unfortunately, after tasting a small bite of this meal, the boys decided they didn’t really like it very much. Ayla didn’t seem that thrilled about it either. I still wanted to post this recipe despite the fact it wasn’t “whine critic-approved” because Tony and I loved it so much. It really is a delicious dish, or at least us grown-ups thought so.  Sometimes I just have to make what I like to eat and not worry about what the kids will think of it, because after all, I’m the one doing the cooking.  So there!
