How to Make It

Step 1

Combine chiles and 1/4 cup boiling water in a bowl; let stand for 15 minutes or until chiles are soft. Remove chiles; discard water.

Step 2

Combine coriander and cumin in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook 3 minutes or until toasted, shaking pan frequently. Place spice mixture in a spice or coffee grinder, and process until finely ground. Combine the ground spices, chiles, rind, cilantro sprigs, garlic, and ginger in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Add coconut milk, and process until smooth.

Step 3

Heat a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add carrot and onion; cook 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Add the coconut milk mixture, salt, and pepper. Increase heat to high, and cook for 4 minutes or until mixture reduces and begins to brown, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-high; add broth, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; stir in 2 cups zucchini. Simmer for 45 minutes or until zucchini is very tender.

Step 4

Remove pan from heat. Mash zucchini mixture with a potato masher, or blend with an immersion blender. Return pan to medium-high heat. Stir in the remaining 1 1/2 cups zucchini and turkey; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Step 5

Spoon 1/2 cup rice into each of 6 shallow bowls; top each serving with about 1 cup stew, 2 teaspoons nuts, and 1 teaspoon cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
