Rethink turkey leftovers with curry and chutney

By J.M. Hirsch

Curries typically are served with rice or flatbread. To put yet another Thanksgiving leftover to work in this turkey curry recipe, serve it over a bed of mashed potatoes. The curry sauce and cranberry chutney will be delicious on the potatoes.
The chutney ó an indian condiment that usually blends cooked sweet fruit with pungent spices ó calls for whole-berry cranberry sauce, but fresh whole berries could be used, too. Add a little extra water and simmer until the berries pop.
The turkey curry calls for coconut milk. You can make a lighter version of this dish by substituting an equal amount of lite coconut milk or chicken broth. With the later you won’t get the same rich, thick sauce as with coconut, but it will still be great.And if you are craving soup instead of curry, skip the chutney and follow the turkey recipe as written. At the end, add 4 cups of chicken broth and bring to a simmer for a delicious curried turkey soup.
The fastest way to make this recipe is to set the chutney to simmer, then prepare the curry while it cooks.
Cranberry Chutney

Servings: 8
1 C. whole-berry cranberry sauce
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1/2 Tbsp. diced jarred jalapeno slices (more or less to taste)

2 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger
1/3 C. cider vinegar
