Christmas Curry

Thursday 12 December 2013

A friend of mine is shunning turkey with all the trimmings and having curry for Christmas instead. As he puts it, "I actually like Christmas. I just think that turkey is overrated. Plus, if you go for a free-range, ethically sourced one you can be paying £60 up. Just for something that tastes a bit like chicken but drier and blander."

However, if you're still sticking with turkey (as we are in our household this year) then here's something you can do with the leftover bird the next day, as an alternative to living off turkey sandwiches for a week!

Christmas Roast Turkey Curry

500g Roast turkey 
1 tsp
1 tsp
 Lemon juice 
1 tsp
 Chopped coriander Salt 
½ tsp
 Garam masala 
1/3 tsp
 Chili powder 
½ tsp
1 tsp
 Ground coriander 
4 tbsp
 Cooking oil 
 Onion chopped 
 Garlic cloves chopped 
¼ cup
 Tomato puree 
tsp Ground cumin

Put the oil in a hot saucepan and add the onion and garlic. Fry for 7 minutes. In a bowl, mix together: the tomato puree, cumin, coriander, turmeric, chili powder, garam masala and salt to form a thick paste. Tip the paste into the onion mixture and fry for half a minute. Stir in the turkey pieces and cook for 1 minute. Add 400ml of hot water from the kettle and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Mix in the ginger and the lemon juice.
