Turkey Curry Recipe

Turkey Curry Recipe

I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to use leftover turkey—especially around the holidays. This is a zesty entree you can make as spicy as you like by varying the amount of curry powder. —Martha Balser, Cincinnati, Ohio

"Super easy to make. Will make it again and will use more curry than I used the first time."

"Absolutely delicious!!! The only thing I changed was that I added one red pepper and doubled the recipe in order to have more leftovers. I also doubled the full amount of the curry because my husband and I love spice! (I used 8 teaspoons of curry for the doubled recipe)"

"Super yummy and easy! I substituted chicken for the turkey and it was just as good. Reheats well. I used 3 tsp curry powder and it was the right amount of spice for us. We do like spicy food, so if you're not as adventurous, I would use less than 3 tsp."
