I found this in the Indian section of my husband's Asian Cooking book. It sounded easy to make and didn't call for any unusual ingredients other than the ghee. I just used unsalted butter instead. This is not a hot curry and the flavor is very subtle. It's almost too boring for my taste although it does taste good. The recipe didn't say to drain off any of the grease but I didn't want to leave it all in so I did drain it. The only other change that I made was using one large onion instead of two. I would have loved a lot of onions in it but I had to watch the carbs. One onion ended up being plenty in any case. Be very careful not to get this on your clothes. The turmeric stains everything yellow. Click the photo to see a close-up.
