  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Sprinkle the cinnamon into the oil and stir until fragrant. Stir the onion into the cinnamon oil and cook for 5 minutes, until softened and golden in color. Stir in the garlic, ginger, and turmeric, and continue to cook for 3 additional minutes. Pour in 1/4 water and cook for 2 minutes, adding a bit more water if mixture is too thick.
  2. Stir the green chilies, turkey, chili powder, garam masala, and the rest of the water into the sauce. Cover and cook for 10 minutes until mixture has thickened to sauce consistency, adding additional water if mixture looks dry. Taste the curry and add salt if needed.


  • Cook's Note
  • To make a mild version of this fiery dish, leave out the green chilies and add just 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder to the curry.

One of the reviews mentioned adding coconut milk. When you do that, it becomes more of a south Indian/ Sri Lankan thing...which is fine but it sweetens it a tiny. When I was SO into cooking In...

This is great as printed. The only change I made was to use about a half of a 4 oz can of green chilies, as I didn't have fresh. I'm sure it would be better with the fresh. It is quick and eas...

I made this with turkey leftovers it was alittle drier so I added alittle more water,also chic peas and done crushed tomatoes .... I'm freezing this but will add yogurt to it when I eat it :-)
