Place the oil, onions and peppers in a wide, deep pan and cook over a gentle heat (lid on) for about 5 minutes, or until softened but not brown.
Add the chilli, garlic, ginger, garam masala and turmeric and fry gently for 2 more minutes (add a very small splash of water from the kettle if it gets to dry)
Add the turkey, passata, coconut milk, salt and pepper and bring to the boil. Turn down low and simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly and the turkey is piping hot all the way through.
Serve with rice and/or naans and all your favourite accompaniments
If you don't have any leftover cooked turkey, you can substitute with leftover cooked chicken. Alternatively start by pan frying cubes of raw turkey or chicken until cooked, before continuing with the recipe.Suitable for freezing.Nutrition information is approximate and meant as a guideline only.
