About this Recipe

Firstly I should say this recipe did come from a book, but I have no idea what book that was! (sorry chef!) My friend has been raving about her Dad’s curry for a long as I can remember, so I asked for the recipe. I got a grainy image over WhatsApp that I could just about read, but it did not fall short. I made this with Turkey after Christmas dinner and now I make pretty much make a batch every Sunday night. I literally love it! 💖


  • 3tbsp Coconut oil
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 1.5cm fresh root Ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp ground garam masala
  • As much left over chicken or turkey as you have
  • 200ml coconut milk
  • 2 tomatoes quartered

As with most of my recipes the quantities are estimates, as I tend to chuck it all in. So, use your tastebud and pan size to determine if you want to decrease or increase quantities. I also throw some left over vegetables in from time to time so get creative. It’s also worked well with sweet potato and cauliflower.
