This is another one of my daughter's student recipes! She made it up one evening, when deciding what to have for supper, based on her fridge and storecupboard contents!! She has cooked it for us at home, and now I have decided to post it on Zaar, as it is such an easy and inexpensive recipe! Obviously home-made curry powder is always best - but any good quality curry powder will do; this is a curry in a hurry, and aptly named in honour of Bridget Jones's Turkey Curry Buffet, the annual event that she is forced to attend at her parent's house every New Year's Day! Have fun and enjoy!
