Simple turkey curry

    50 min

    This is a twist on butter chicken, but instead uses turkey. I like to use turkey year round, as it's healthier and often cheaper than chicken. This turkey curry is very simple to make, with just a handful of ingredients. And instead of the curry powder, you could use your favourite curry paste to taste.
