Turkey Curry by DESIblitz - on Fresh Flavours Blog - SaveCo

What do you do with leftover turkey at Christmas?

Now there's a question that's asked by many at some point during Christmas. But worry not - Aisha Farooq from DESIblitz is here to save the day with a very simple solution - Turkey Curry.



  1. Heat the oil and butter in a large non-stick pot.
  2. Add the onions and cook for 2-3 minutes, then add the garlic, ginger, chilli, cardamom, cumin, turmeric, garam masala and ground coriander.
  3. Cook over a medium heat until the onion is soft, being careful not to burn the spices.
  4. Add the potatoes and butternut squash and cook until the potato begins to stick to the bottom of the pan slightly.
  5. Add the stock and bring to the boil. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the potatoes and butternut squash are tender.
  7. Stir in the yoghurt and cream, then add the lemon juice.
  8. Add the cooked turkey, fold in and simmer to heat through.
  9. Sprinkle with coriander leaves and serve immediately.
