Recipe: turkey curry

I had some cooked turkey leg in the freezer and used Mayflower curry mix and some coconut powder for this.  It was dead easy and tasted - well, pretty good really.

Authentic? - I wouldn't say so!  Definitely frugal though.

Ingredients:  amounts don't really matter except for affecting the cost.
a little bit of chopped onion, carrot and celery
a bit of butter or oil
two baby corns, cut into chunks (they were Super Six in Aldi)
about 10ps worth of Mayflower curry mix
about 10ps worth of coconut milk powder
some cooked turkey

rice - I used basmati because I like it best!

Put the rice on to cook in whatever way you usually cook rice.

Gently saute the onion, carrot, celery and baby corn in the butter/oil until softening.
Add the curry mix, stir it in and continue to gently fry for another minute or so, stirring.
Add some water.
Mix the coconut powder with a bit of water, add it to the pan, stir well and add more water, if necessary.  Let it simmer for about five minutes, making sure it doesn't dry out - add more water if needed.
Add the cooked turkey and heat it through

That's it really.  Just let it simmer while the rice finished cooking, then serve.  If you have it and like it, add some chopped coriander leaves to serve.

This is what I used, from B&M
It's a 'Chinese style' mix and although the box says 9 portions, it will make more than that of my sized portions!
