~Last Post of 2011 and Last of The Turkey~

We're just finishing picking over the last of the turkey tonight, and for the second time this week we're having a curry.  This recipe is adapted from Gary Rhodes' quick chicken curry in his 1997 book Short Cut Rhodes, it's a quick and easy way to use up any leftover meat (even chicken or pheasant too.)
Chopped leftover cooked turkey
3 tbsp cold-pressed Rapeseed Oil
2 onions chopped
2 garlic cloves chopped
Medium curry powder/ garam masala to taste
I can Carnation evaporated milk
Handful of sultanas
Dash of milk
Salt & Pepper
Soften onions in the oil until transluscent, then add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the curry powder and cook for a couple more minutes.  Season the chopped meat and add to the onions.  Keep stirring to prevent burning.  Add a dash of water to deglaze the pan, then add the can of evaporated milk and the sultanas (optional).  Simmer for about 10-15 mins, add a drop of milk to prevent sticking, if needed.


  1. Hello Sally,
    I can't believe 2011 has gone so quick, I want it to slow down!
    I absolutely love curry, although unfortunately I'm a vegetarian but I was thinking I could replace the turkey with quorn!
    Lovely blog, I have been following for a few months now, have a happy 2012!

  2. How spooky, I was just going to say Sally that I would have to give this one a miss as I'm a veggie and then I thought like Becky either Quorn or marinated tofu would be nice.
    Happy New Year x
