RECIPE: BritMums Summer Turkey Recipe Challenge (YB)

This post is an entry for BritMums’ Summer Turkey Recipe Challenge

My recipe is a delicious turkey curry shepherd's pie, quick and tasty, and although it's a curry based recipe, it is a perfect summer recipe as eating hot food actually helps you in the heat!!

Serves: 4
Cooking time: 30-45 mins

1 tbsp sunflower oil
500g lean turkey mince
1 onion, finely chopped
1 inch cube ginger, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp hot curry powder
400g tin chopped tomatoes
450ml water
6 finger green chillies, finely chopped
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp salt
4 large sweet potatoes
10 white potatoes
Freshly ground black pepper
Fresh coriander
Knob butter

- Fry the mince in the oil until cooked over a med-high heat approx. 5-10 minutes.
- Remove from the pan, drain and set aside
- Fry the onion, ginger, garlic and chilli until soft
- Add the spices and fry for 2 mins
- Add the mince and stir well
- Add the tin of chopped tomatoes and the water
- Boil at a high temperature, and stir frequently until the mixture is reduced and thick
- Add to a glass cooking dish
- Chop the white and sweet potatoes into small chunks and boil in lightly salted water (in seperate pans) until soft enough to mash
- Drain, then add the butter and black pepper to each pan and mash until smooth
- Add some plain mash onto the mince mix in the cooking dish and top it off with a layer of sweet potato
- Put in the oven on gas mark 4 for about 15-20 until the potato crisps over slightly
- Sprinkle chopped coriander on top and serve
