Great way to use up leftover turkey, or even chicken or pork. Great flavor and easy to make. I did find the sauce to be a bit thin, though, and would cut down the amount of water used. Made for My 3 Chefs game.

I did use chicken, and it wasn't left over, I just sauteed it before getting on with the rest of the recipe! I added chopped tomatoes to this, since we enjoy tomatoes in our curry. Good flavour, easily done, we enjoyed it, and I should have made more, to enjoy the next day!!! Thank you English Rose, a good recipe! Made for I Recommend tag game.
