rr’s turkey curry on tj’s garlic naan

6 Jul

i was originally going to make a different recipe using ground turkey – but figured hey why not make something different.  miraculously i had everything needed in the new recipe.  it was ok — nothing i’d make again — pretty bland!





  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup feta or goat cheese, crumbled  (i used feta)
  • 1 cup plain whole milk yogurt, preferably Greek
  • Grated peel and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 large tomato, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped   (i left out)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 pitas or other flatbread, warmed  (i used tjs garlic naan)


  1. In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and curry powder and cook, stirring, until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add the turkey and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cheese until blended. Remove from the heat and stir in the yogurt, lemon peel and lemon juice; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the tomato, parsley and remaining 1/4 cup olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place a warm pita on each plate, top with the turkey curry and tomato salad and fold over.
