Start with making the sauce. Sauté some onions until they are lightly browned followed by frying minced ginger and garlic. Fry all the spices including ground turmeric, ground coriander, paprika and red chili powder.
Next up, add the tomatoes and fry until they are soft and mushy. Bring this to a boil. Now, reduce heat and simmer for about 2-3 minutes. At this stage, you can add in cream that make the sauce rich and luscious. Season with just the right amount of salt. Pour in water to make thick sauce.
You’ll need to simmer the sauce for about 3-4 minutes. Make sure you stir it occasionally. If the sauce becomes too thick, you can add some water to achieve the right consistency. A light sprinkle of garam masala and coriander (cilantro) leaves add the final touch to this leftover turkey curry. When the sauce is ready, stir in the shredded turkey. And you’re done!
