Prep Time
38 Mins
4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup turkey mixture and 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro)

To make this dish spicier, use Madras curry powder. Try cooked chicken or shrimp instead of turkey. A riesling wine would be good with this menu.

How to Make It

Heat canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion to pan; sauté 4 minutes. Add flour and curry powder; sauté 1 minute. Stir in chicken broth; bring to a boil. Stir in turkey and salt. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until thickened. Sprinkle with cilantro.

Delicious & easy. I did follow suggestions of other reviewers & used a maharaja curry (l love Penzey's brand) & 1/2 teas of red curry paste to spice it up and added 2 cups of thinly sliced carrot disks and 2 cups of sliced brown mushrooms to add color/veggies. You could try any combo of veggies just cook a little longer until the veggies are tender. I also skipped the cilantro, but did serve it over brown rice.

Delicious and so easy. Omitted the cilantro and served with leftover brown rice. Would be good with additional veggies. Will make again.

I used chicken thighs instead of turkey and reduced the oil by half. I really didn't think it was spicy enough and it lacked a bit of sweetness. Next time I'll use a hotter curry powder and add a tablespoon of sugar. I like how easy it was to make and I'll definitely try this again. I served it over coconut rice and paired it with a cucumber vinegarette salad. Hubby loved it and it made enough for leftovers the next day.

Excellent! I did add some garlic, 1/2 c chopped carrot and the optional Madras red curry paste--2 tsp--which made it so rich and spicy. We used both white and dark meat turkey we had put into the freezer. Served w/ brown rice (Minute rice is so quick) and french green beans, this recipe made for a warm, quick, filling meal! I was pretty bummed when hubby took the leftovers to work for lunch.

This is a solid hit. Will add it to my turkey left over file. My husband went back for seconds. I followed the recipe exactly adding a few toasted sliced almonds when serving. I will look for a milder mango chutney as I could only find hot and the Cranberry-mango chutney had quite a kick to it.

This was great! I sprinkled some Garam Masala on my chicken as I cooked it and it added a nice flavor to the Curry. I also used a Spicy Curry Powder from Spice Island. Very simple and quick, but tasty. This will be a chicken dish I go to when I need a good dinner in a hurry.
