Ian Walker's Turkey Curry

Hi Everyone!

Over Christmas I had the pleasure of getting a tweet from our former goal keeper Ian Walker.

I asked him what he would like for him to be cooked and he mentioned that Steffan Freund made a lovely Turkey Salad.

So I thought why not try and make a Turkey Curry which has all the balanced health values for a Sport's man.

What you'll need is:

500g of Turkey thigh
100ml light Soy Sauce (Low Salt version)
300ml of full fat or low fat coconut milk
3 Kaffir Lime Leaves
2 Spring Onions
1 Red Chilli

Curry Paste

2 Lemon Grass
4-6 Red Birds Eye Chilli
A thumb piece of Ginger
2 cloves of Garlic
A hand full of Coriander stalks
2 tbsp of Sunflower or Vegetable Oil
1 tbsp of Turmeric

OK, first off throw all the ingredients for the Curry paste into a blender or pestle and mortar and ground to a paste, leave this to let the flavours mingle

Now, season the Turkey thighs cutlets with some Salt and Pepper and sear them off into a pan. Do this in batches if your pan isn't big enough.

Now throw the paste into the pan and cook it out for a minute or two

Once this is done throw in the Soy Sauce and let this bubble down for a little bit (by half is fine). Then add the Kaffir Lime Leaves.

Then add the Coconut Milk and let this slowly cook down for 10-15 minutes.

Add your garnish to taste and serve with some steamed Basmati Rice.

And there it is...hopefully Ian will give it to his players at Bishop Stortford.

I hope you try this and if you do please tweet me a picture to @spurs_cook

Well it's been a while, but here is a nice video tribute to Ian Walker which I found.
