Easy Turkey Inspired Indian and Pakistani dishes you can try this Christmas

December 5, 2019

Never mind the same tried and tested and often unimpressive roast turkey this Christmas. There are plenty of great turkey recipes out there for you to experiment with. We even have a collection of great Indian and Pakistani turkey dishes that can incorporate to help elevate your cooking this Christmas:

  1. Turkey Tikka Masala

The much-loved tikka masala curry is a beloved dish that can be filled with anything from goat to chicken to just vegetables. So, it makes sense that it would also work really well with turkey. And by marinating your turkey overnight in the blend of yoghurt, turmeric, garam masala and garlic you can avoid the dreaded dry turkey. Instead your turkey pieces will be well seasoned, packed with flavour and succulent all the way through.

  1. Turkey meatballs in Turmeric Sauce

Whilst meatballs may be better known as an Italian dish, these turkey meatballs are a great way to implement your bird in a different style. A garam masala, chilli, coriander and turmeric sauce makes for a perfect accompaniment to the turkey mince moulded into perfect spheres that go perfect with a side of roti and rice.

  1. Turkey Biryani

There’s no better way of creating new dishes than bringing together two favourites. This time it is the Christmas turkey and the Biryani. The UK meets India and Pakistan with this showstopper rice dish filled with aromatic basmati rice, succulent turkey pieces which can be cooked at home in your casserole dish and placed on the table for everyone to help themselves.
