Feel-Good Indian curry with turkey


I know Fridays. They’re the end of the week. You’re tired. You don’t feel you have the energy to cook, so how about a takeout?! Yes it’s a classic, isn’t it? But part of my goal with this blog is to give you easy, yet healthy and delicious options.

Not alone does homemade taste better, it’s also sooo much healthier. If you don’t know this already, the main problem with takeouts is the amount of salt and other “invisible” ingredients. Let’s say you’re cooking for a dinner party. You’re automatically adding more seasoning because it’s a bigger amount you’re cooking. Then think about how much needs to go into fast food. Even though it’s under the “healthy” category.

Alright, enough about that for now. How about you make this quick and yummy curry tonight? It requires a minimum of ingredients and only takes about half an hour. Now that time is hard for even Deliveroo to beat.
