About this Custom Cook
I like to use the Indian yellow curry powder from Whole Spice in Napa Valley, but any Indian curry powder will work. If you don't have these exact ingredients, don't worry. This recipe is extremely versatile. You could substitute any of these vegetables with potatoes, cauliflower, eggplant, turnips, etc. If you are vegetarian or vegan just omit the chicken and add a pound or two of additional vegetables. Let your creativity run wild with this one.
