I did a turkey but don't want to talk about it

My turkey was fine but nothing special. Tonight I mixed up a nice curried turkey, it was pretty good.  I use Sun Brand Madras Curry Powder. It's redder than regular curry and has a slightly different flavor but whatever you have will work just fine.

I took the rest of the breast meat and cut it up into bite size pieces, about three quarters of a pound.  Put some rice on to cook.  Dice a medium onion and set it on the burner to brown in some oil.  Thinly slice a carrot and add it when the onions start to brown.  Dice up a red pepper, celery stick and slice four mushrooms.  When the onions are golden sprinkle one to two tablespoons of curry powder over them and stir it in.  This will dry the pan so add some turkey or chicken stock to moisten the pan but not wet it.  Vigorously shake a can of coconut milk to break up the fat and add half the can to the pan.  Add a quarter cup whipping cream or milk.  Add more liquid if you need it but remember you are making a sauce not a soup.

Add a pinch of cayenne pepper to tone down the sweetness.  Add the rest of the vegetables and the meat and let it all simmer down to a thick sauce. If it's too thin you can shake a little instant blending flour to thicken it but then cook off the flour taste. When the vegetables are cooked serve over rice.
