Remember those awesome Penzey’s Spices I got for Christmas?  Well, I have been getting their catalog and I love that they share customer stories and recipes within its pages!  I couldn’t pass up a recipe for my favorite type of cuisine–Indian.  This is a mild, delicious curry that the whole family, including the kiddos, enjoyed!  I have slightly altered the spices from the original, by Jordan Campbell.
