“A good fusion home for leftover turkey, dried fruit & water chestnuts that is healthy & tastes great. Adapted from A Taste of Thai. They called for a package of their Yellow Curry Rice and I changed to use what we have on hand (big tub o' Mae Ploy yellow curry paste & brown rice LOL). That also includes substituting a handful of sultanas or fresh cranberries for the dried cranberries as needed. We have also added chopped lightly blanched bok choy to really make it a one dish meal.”
