Turkey Curry and / or Quorn Curry

Receite em Português AQUI (com pequenas diferenças)

Pictures above illustrate the Turkey dish (and the rice was boiled with turmeric)


Endeavouring to do something quick but at the same time good enough for vegetarians (as my wife is one) and also for meat eaters as I wanted to use some turkey I decided to do a Curry to feed 6 people.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 large carrots (thinly sliced)
  • 1 & 1/2 onions (diced)
  • 1 large courgette (diced)
  • 1 large red pepper (diced)
  • 10 medium mushrooms (quartered)
  • 1 chilli (de-seeded and thinly sliced)
  • 3 large garlic cloves (thinly sliced)
  • 1 big bunch of coriander (chopped)
  • 1 & 1/2 tin of tomatoes
  • 2 soup spoons of tomato paste (diluted in a little water)
  • 1 large soup spoon of cumin powder
  • 1 large soup spoon of garam masala
  • 2 large soup spoons of turmeric
  • 1 large soup spoon of coriander seeds powder
  • 1 large soup spoon of sweet paprika
  • 6 glugs of olive oil (half per pan)
  • 300grs Turkey
  • 300grs Quorn
I mixed all the powders together than divided it in half, on two seperate pans I poured 3 "glugs" of olive oil, once hot added the powders and let it cook for a little time once it formed a paste and cooked a little I added theonion, garlic the chilli and the meat/quorn (please notice I divided ingredients all the way through in half, for each pan appart from the meat and quorn which is one 300grs for each pan) cooked this until the meat/quorn was cooked through adding a little water when a little dried, then i added the pepper, the courgette the mushrooms the and carrots cooked this for about 5 minutes and added the tomato (again half to each pan) and let this cook for 10 minutes then added the tomato paste (half each) and let this cook for a further 10 minutes.
While this was doing I boiled some rice with 4 crushed cardoms, 2 crushed garlic, a tea spoon of cumin powder and a tea spoon of turmeric (if you want the rice to be white don't use turmeric), once the rice is cooked drained it rinsed with boiling water removed the cardoms and put it in a pan drizzled with a little olive oil (optionally you can stir in some chopped coriander and some green raisins) put a lit and let it rest for 2 minutes.
Once the curry is one minute away from being cooked add a generous bunch of coriander (half each) and garnish each plate with a fe coriander leaves on top see picture...this one was really tasty.

Brigada tambem pela sua visita..tambem nao sei porque o portugues nao tem para comentar mas penso que futuros posts teram sitio aonde comentar. Agradeco-lhe o seu comentario, foi bem generoso. O Quorn é um alternativo a carne, assim como a soja, voce pode usar soja se quizer (em pedacos).

Recipes published here, will try to conform to the following criteria:

-Easy to create or bake.
-Will be nutritious, wholesome and healthy as well as economical too.
- Will be varied and inventive, mostly created by me.
-Occasionally I will treat you to some indulgent ones. But just as a treat. lol :)
- If I use other blog recipes will be to pey homenage and I will definitly link it, appreciated if the same is done for mine.

I will try to respond to all comments made, and visit their owners, however I run a no strings attached blog here when I comment on other blogs I do not expect to have them come here the same way I don't accept if I am commented on that the person will expect my visit to their blog, no commitments, but as I said I will try.
