Turkey rogan josh
Perfect for your christmas turkey leftovers- a tasty, rich curry that is also super-healt
TURKEY ROGAN JOSH
Somehow curry is the perfect antidote to the excesses of Christmas day- especially if it’s one full of veggies and goodness! I made a slightly different one last year (see it here), and this year I really fancied having a go at a turkey rogan josh. It’s nice and easy, all the spices, onion and garlic are blended into a paste and then it’s just a case of adding everything together and simmering it for about half an hour.
Out traditional Boxing Day dinner is actually turkey, chips and beans, but I always loved the idea of the turkey curry buffet from Bridget Jones’ diary, and this year I think we have enough turkey to feed us for a few days!
