Slow Cooked Creamy Turkey Jalfrezi & Rice

Welcome to my slow cooked creamy turkey jalfrezi and rice recipe.

Welcome to my slow cooked creamy turkey jalfrezi and rice recipe.

As you know this month is all about those delicious meals created from the leftovers of Christmas and Thanksgiving and getting the best possible use out of your turkey as you can.

Forget throwing all of that leftover turkey in the bin, or getting so sick of turkey sandwiches that you wish you were vegan, but making great meals that make turkey something that you look forward to over the festive period.

Well it goes without saying that turkey leftovers wouldn’t be the same without your traditional Asian curry! Introducing you to our delicious slow cooker turkey jalfrezi served with some delicious white rice.

Perfect for keeping the cold away and so easy to prepare and cook that you could even make this on a hangover!

This turkey jalfrezi recipe was one of the very first curries I ever made and when I started cooking 17 years ago I was rather rubbish at it, so if my former teenage self could do it then you could easily teach your kids to make it too.

So bring on happy families and homemade curries!
