Heat the oil in a large casserole over a medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and ground spices. Cook for 5 minutes stirring continuously until the onions are softened. Stir in the stock and tomato puree and bring to the boil whilst continuing to stir.
Add the dried apricots and orange juice and a pinch of seasoning. Reduce the heat, cover loosely and simmer for 15 minutes until the juices have reduced slightly and the fruits have softened.
Add the turkey to the casserole, re-cover and simmer for another 20 minutes. Serve with couscous mixed with freshly chopped coriander or with some basmati rice.
Slow cooker method
To slow cook add all ingredients except the oil directly into a slow cook and cook on low heat for 8 hours.
I have to say I was a little dubious about this recipe, but tried it out because I thought my children might like the sweetness of the apricots - I was right, but also very surprised by how much I enjoyed it too, and will definitely be making it again. - 09 Feb 2014
