Bonnie's notes for this recipe:
I made these Indian Tacos one night and they got the raves from my family. i accidentally poured curry instead of cumin in the frying pan...Happily, it was one of the best mistakes I have ever made. Whip these up some night and enjoy a burst of flavor in your tacos, Indian Style! Enjoy!

Directions

1
PREPARE THE MEAT AND ONIONS:
Put the ground turkey in the pan over medium heat and cook until light brown. Add the curry, cumin, garlic powder, and taco seasoning. Add one cup of water. Mix gently and simmer until liquid is reduced. Meanwhile, saute the onion in a tablespoon of olive oil in a small frying pan, adding the milk a small amount at a time to keep the onions from over browning and until the onions are tender and a nice carmel color. Add the onions to the meat mixture. and stir gently to combine. Simmer a few minutes more. Meat should be very moist when served.
2
COOK THE TACO SHELLS:
You can used boxed shells, but they are not as good as making your own. Take a medium frying pan and add some olive oil to it to fry the tortillas.
3
Place the cooked shells on paper towels and drain.
4
BUILD THE TACOS:
Place the meat in the cooked taco shell and top with lettuce, tomato and onion and cheese, or anything else you wish. Sour cream and avocado is good. Taco sauce is another option. We like green sauce the best.

Let me know what you think, Donna, we liked these as well as regular tacos. I didn't put any taco sauce on mine because I really like the flavor of the meat. I meant to add to the recipe to cook the meat and serve it moist.♥ I will do that.
