Healthy Recipe Turkey Curry Summary:
- Servings: 2 portion
- Time: 45 mins
- Difficulty: Easy
Ingredients for Healthy Turkey Curry :
- 400g of pre-roasted turkey meat. You can use a combination of the white and dark meat and just roughly chop
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 medium sized onion chopped
- 1 red pepper, de-seeded and sliced
- 100g of spinach
- Cracked sea salt and black pepper to taste
- 2 teaspoons of Madras curry powder
- 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- Fresh coriander to garnish.
Method for Healthy Turkey Curry:
- Use a medium sized pan, add the oil and fry the chopped onion and sliced red pepper until onion becomes translucent and pepper is softened.
- Add the salt, black pepper, garlic powder and spinach to the pan and lightly fry until the spinach wilts and reduces in size.
- Add the pre-roasted turkey meat and curry powder and stir mixture to obtain an even coating of the spices.
- Add the chopped tomatoes and juice to the mix and set the heat to a low simmer.
- The longer you let the curry simmer the more the spices are going to be infused into the meat.
Ideally cover the saucepan with a lid to ensure all of the moisture is retained and will stop the curry drying out.
If need be, add a small amount of water to the mixture to maintain the sauce and prevent it drying out.
- When you've let the spices infuse sufficiently serve and enjoy!
- TIP: If you find the Madras heat too much, adding a dollop of low-fat Greek Yoghurt will cool it down and bump up the protein content of the meal even further!
