Tamarind gives a lovely sour tang to this quick and easy curry.
1 onion, chopped
4 fresh birds eye chillies, seeds removed, chopped
1 tsp coriander seeds
2 tsp tamarind paste
1 tbsp caster sugar
2 garlic cloves, bruised
1 small knob root ginger, peeled and chopped
1 tbsp sunflower oil, for frying
500g/1lb 2oz turkey breast, sliced
3 sprigs thyme, leaves only
400ml/14fl oz coconut milk
150ml/5fl oz chicken or turkey stock
2 large waxy potatoes, peeled and diced
250g/9oz fresh spinach, chopped
1 bunch fresh coriander, chopped
50g/1¾oz whole peeled almonds
Place the chopped onion, chillies, coriander seeds, tamarind, sugar and one clove of garlic into a blender or food processor with the ginger. Pulse until blended into a paste.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan and brown the turkey, in batches if necessary, with the remaining garlic clove and thyme. Remove the turkey from the pan and discard the garlic. In the same pan, cook the blended paste for a few minutes then return the turkey to the pan and add the coconut milk, stock and potatoes.
Cook gently for 20 minutes until the turkey has cooked through and the sauce has thickened. Finally, stir in the spinach, fresh coriander and almonds and warm through. Remove from the heat and serve.
