Fruity Turkey Curry

Fruity Turkey Curry

This mildly spiced sweet curry is the perfect way to use up your leftover turkey. It makes a difference from turkey pie and is sure to do down a treat with the whole family. It is quick to prepare so makes the ideal Boxing Day meal, when you are feeling tired (and maybe slightly delicate) from the day before!
