The perfect use of leftover turkey, duck or goose and with a little pre-planning you can have it ready in minutes, what’s not to like about that?! Make boxing day a breeze with this easy recipe.

Serves 4 – 6


2 medium Onions, finely diced
50g Unsalted butter
4 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
1 thumb size piece of Ginger, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Parva Spices Turkey Curry powder
800g Chopped tomatoes
500g Leftover turkey meat, diced into 2cm pieces


You can make the sauce for this curry well in advance and freeze it for use when ready.

In a medium sized saucepan melt the butter slowly over a low heat, add the chopped onions and put the lid on. Allow the onions to soften for about 5 minutes or until cooked through. Remove the lid and brown for a further 5 minutes, stirring through to cook evenly.

Next add the ginger and garlic and stir through. Tip in the curry powder and stir through. Tip in the tomatoes and bring to a gentle simmer. Season and taste before allowing to reduce by a third.

Add the cooked turkey meat, cover with a lid and heat through for about 10 minutes. Taste and check the seasoning and heat. You can add more chilli powder or a chopped fresh chilli if you want it really hot.

Serve with basmati or whole grain rice.
