Leftover turkey is perfect for this easy Asian-inspired curry and sweet potato dish! Post-Thanksgiving has never tasted so good!
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- ½ large onion, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons garam masala
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 2 teaspoons yellow curry powder
- 1 large tomato, chopped
- ½ cup light coconut milk
- 2/3 cup water
- ½ large sweet potato, peeled and cut into small cubes
- ½ large white sweet potato (or regular potato), peeled and cut into small cubes
- 2 cups leftover cooked turkey meat, cut into thick cubes
- Salt and pepper
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- Steamed white rice
- Slice the leftover turkey breast into thick pieces before cubing.
- Sauté the onions and garlic until translucent.
- Stir in garam masala, cumin, and curry powder until incorporated. Add in tomato, stirring for about 2 minutes. Add the coconut milk, water, and potatoes and stir well.
- Cook and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are soft.
- Stir in the turkey meat and simmer another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over steamed rice. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
- Use any sweet potatoes you can locate. I was able to find these beautiful white sweet potatoes at Whole Foods. Check your local Asian market too!
- You can use white meat or dark meat in this dish, or both. I happen to like white meat better, but don’t let that stop you!
- Brown rice would also be delicious in this dish!
