How to Make Turkey and Parsnip Curry

Heat the oil in a saucepan, add the onions and fry gently for 10 minutes until they are softened and lightly coloured. Add the parsnips and stir well.

To make the curry, stir in the curry paste, then add the tomatoes with a little salt, and stir well. Add 1½ cups of water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the parsnips are just tender.

To finish, stir in the turkey chunks, cover the pan again and simmer for a further 5 minutes until the turkey is heated through. Remove from the heat. (The curry can now be cooled and frozen for up to 2 months.) Lightly swirl in the yogurt and serve with basmati rice.

We hope these recipes have inspired you and help you transform the leftover Christmas turkey in a lovely curry dish!
