Turkey Curry (serve with rice)
Have leftover turkey in the freezer and looking for a new way to use it? This simple curry is a nice change from the traditional flavors of Thanksgiving, is healthy and easy to make.
(Works fine with chicken too, if your leftovers are gone.)
About 2 cups cubed turkey
½ to 1 cauliflower cut into florets
About 1 c. frozen peas
½ to 1 onion, diced
¼ c raisins
1 apple – chopped
Curry powder to taste (2-3 tablespoons at least)
Salt to taste
~1/3 c milk
- Partially pre-cook the cauliflower (boil or steam) until crisp/tender. Run under cold water when done to stop cooking.
- Boil some water and pour over raisins in small dish – let them plump up for about 15 minutes. Strain. Sauté the onion in olive oil.
- Add the cauliflower, curry powder, and a little broth. Cover for a while, checking to see if more broth is needed. Before cauliflower is completely done, add turkey, peas, raisins and ½ of apple. Add more broth as needed and to make it as soupy as you like.
- When all ingredients are nearly done, mix egg with fork in small bowl; add milk. Add a little of the broth from the curry to this mixture gradually, stirring constantly. When it reduces to about a cup in volume, add back to curry stirring constantly to prevent eggs from scrambling. Cook for another 5 – 10 minutes.
Serve over your favorite type of rice.
