Comments: What to do with leftover turkey...


This looks delicious, but I have a questions...

Isn't curry supposed to be added to this curry dish? Or am I totally wrong here?

Andrew, by curry I am assuming you mean curry powder? The Food Lover's Companion (available on the site if you are curious) defines curry powder as follows: "Curry powder is actually a pulverized blend of up to 20 spices, herbs and seeds. Among those most commonly used are cardamom, chiles, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, fennel seed, fenugreek, mace, nutmeg, red and black pepper, poppy and sesame seeds, saffron, tamarind and turmeric (the latter is what gives curried dishes their characteristic yellow color)." In fact, any curry dish will have a variety of Indian spices, as this one does. Or it can call for commercial curry powder. But as the flavor varies depending on which brand you buy (or your own personal recipe) it is safer to give the individual spice elements in a recipe. All the spices in my recipe are commonly found in curry powder.

Hope that helps clarify things!

Excellent helps in this recipe. I was stumped while trying to create my own Turkey Curry ensemble for the very picky chefs in my home and was fortunate to find your blog. Fabulous help in my time of need!

We have renamed this The Turkey Curry of Dreams. Made this recipe for my housemates post-xmas 2009 and it went down so well I have to make it pretty much once a month, though sometimes with left over chicken instead!

Really love that it comes out slightly differently each time, and we've adapted it to suit our tastes; slightly more chilli and less lemon, and usually a beer not wine mid-cook! So I just wanted to say thanks, for giving me my signature dish!
