How to make it

  • 1. In a warm pan, pour little bit of oil to saute the gravy items.
  • 2. Start with Cinnamon stick, Cardamom pods & then the fennel seeds.
  • 3. Then add the raw peanuts, roast well.
  • 4. Then add garlic, ginger and then onion. Saute for a sec. adding a pinch of salt.
  • 5. Then add Peppercorns, Coriander seeds, Curry leaves, Red chilies. Roast well.
  • 6. Then add the shredded coconut, saute for a second and take it out of the heat.
  • 7. Cool for a few min. and grind it in a blender with warm water to a smooth paste along with chopped tomatoes and keep it aside.
  • 8. In a another wide sauce pan, add a the rest of the oil, once warm add Mustard seeds, once it starts spluttering add the curry leaves. Break the red chillies and add to it.
  • 9. Add the rest of the tumeric and then add the sliced onions.
  • 10. Now add the marinated Turkey and saute well.
  • 11. Add 1 & 1/2 cups of hot water, then the tamarind pulp, salt and sugar.
  • 12. Boil well for 10 min.
  • 13. Reduce the heat and add the ground gravy mixture.
  • 14. Mix well and bring up the heat to medium high.
  • 15. Once it starts to bubble well, check for seasonings.
  • 16. If its too thick add a little more water.
  • 16. Let it simmer for 35 min. at medium high.
  • 17. Add chopped cilantro, mix well and turn off the heat after a min.
  • 18. You can leave it in the warm stove. It will only enhance the taste.
  • NOTE:
  • 1. Its a super spicy, tangy dish to go with steamed rice. This recipe is great done in a pressure cooker. The meat literally falls apart when you cook it this way. If you do it in the pressure cooker this dish can be done in 20 min.
  • 2. Always use hot or warm water to cook and grind. It keeps the dish from spoiling. Use caution while grinding!!
  • 3. If you are going to prepare this dish with fresh Chicken or Turkey you have to marinate it overnight.
  • 4. It can be done in a Crock pot too.
  • I know its elaborate but its worth the effort. Enjoy & Good eats!

    Sounds great, but some of the things are not readily available such as green cardamom, curry leaves, and Thai chilis. Are there any substitutions?
