Turkey is a fantastic lean protein source and a great addition to any diet plan. However, turkey is often shunned as it can be dry and relatively tasteless if prepared in the wrong way. This curry recipe is rich and creamy, yet hugely healthy and it’s packed with protein and low in fat.

How is this creamy curry healthy? Well, the creaminess comes from 0% fat greek yogurt, which is protein rich and low in calories, rather than single or double cream that is typically used in curry recipes.

Serve with rice (brown or basmati), and choose how much rice you have based on your dietary requirements. We recommend around 75g of rice if you’re cutting, 125g if you’re bulking, and 100g of rice otherwise. Enjoy!
