Yellow Thai Curry with Turnip

Yellow Thai Curry with Turnip

In winter we also like to cook with fresh vegetables. Now it is turnip season and we thought about making a curry with the delicious root. The turnip root is high in vitamin C and low in calories. And so we cooked this curry. The turnip root in a yellow Thai curry is a perfect combination.
