Turkey curry (Slimming World friendly)
I love turkey curry made with the leftovers of the Christmas turkey, I know it always makes me think of Bridget Jones Mum turkey curry buffet but for me it's a great way of using leftover turkey. I'm not keen on turkey sandwiches and this recipe means if you really want to get right back on it then this is syn free.
It's a really simple recipe I love it as it is but if you prefer a creamier style curry you can add some fat free Greek style natural yogurt at the end but make sure you take it off the heat first or it might curdle.
1-2lbs leftover turkey (skin removed cut into chunks)
2 large onions (peeled and cut into chunks)
1 tin chopped tomatoes
2-3 tbsp curry powder ( mild or hot depending how you like it)
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger (or use frozen or from a jar)
1 pint chicken stock (from a cube or stockpot is fine)
2 tsp salt
low calorie spray oil
Spray a large pan or a wok with some of the spray oil and add the onions, Fry over a lowish heat until they start to soften, Add the garlic and ginger and fry for a few more minutes. Next add the curry powder and keep frying if it starts to stick add a little of the chicken stock.
Add the chicken stock, tinned tomatoes and the turkey, Stir well and bring to a simmer. Simmer for about 20-30 minutes until the sauce has reduced and become thicker. Add the salt and stir well then taste in case you might need a little more.
Happy New Year!!
