Start by making the mint and coriander raita. Place the yoghurt, mint and coriander in a bowl and gently stir until well combined (do not whisk or the consistency will become very runny). Add a squeeze of lemon and salt to taste. Place

in the fridge until ready to serve.


Heat the sunflower oil in a saucepan and add the coriander, cumin and turmeric. Stir fry for around 30 seconds until fragrant. Then add the garlic, chilli, ginger and sugar and stir fry for another minute until they have softened slightly.


Add the turkey, desiccated coconut and season to taste. Stir fry for around 5 minutes until heated through.


Serve the turkey coconut curry with rice, naan bread or chapattis (or a mixture of them) with vegetables or salad.


Drizzle the mint and coriander raita over the top.
