Tuesday Food Blog - More leftovers

Turkey left overs are the butt of many ribald comments both approaching and leaving Christmas lunch. In fact there is now a plethora of advice about what to do with the left overs. I have my own twist that suits my tastes and I offer those now.


Turkey curry with Yorkshire puddings

Ingredients

To make a curry base

1 onion, chopped
butter for frying
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garam marsala
1 tsp cumin
1 dsp hot curry powder
1 clove garlic, chopped
turkey meat and vegetables
1/2 pint of light stock

Method

Fry the onion, add the spices and season with salt and black pepper.
Add the turkey meat and vegetables from Christmas lunch stir and transfer to a saucepan. Pour over the stock, bring to the boil, season and then simmer for 30 minutes.

Re-heat the Yorkshire puddings at 220 degrees c for 4 minutes.

Serve as shown in the photograph.

Left over pilaf


This was the left over gravy and vegetables from the above curry with a handful or two of rice thrown in. Cooked for twenty minutes until the rice had absorbed some of the juices. I had removed the turkey meat when serving this previously so that it wasn't being re-heated for the second time. So very much a vegetarian option.

Very tasty.

God Bless
