Turkey with Curried Cream Sauce

Give plain old turkey a brand-new spin with classic Indian spices. My version's pretty mild, but if you're in the mood for fire, add extra curry and a shake or two of cayenne pepper. This dish disappears fast, no matter who's at the table. —Lori Lockrey, Scarborough, Ontario

    It was my first time cooking with curry. So I think it tasted good. It didn't have a strong taste. It tasted better after I added salt & pepper at the end. I did add 1 red pepper and 1/2 a green pepper (just some extra veg i had in my fridge). The cashews added a nice crunch :) My 3 yr old ate his entire bowl without any prompting!

    Quick and easy. It actually picks up more flavor the longer it sits.

    We thought the recipe, as it is written, was very bland and tasteless....half way through the meal I stirred 1/3 cup of mango chutney into the cream sauce and it made all the difference. For us it went from not so good to very tasty.
