Just a few comments about this recipe:

I wouldn’t be put off by the turkey mince, it actually works well in this recipe.
The turkey mince could be substituted for Quorn mince.
The recipe states that it serves 4 people, I’d say more like 3 good sized portions
I think this would also be nice served as a starter on some large lettuce leaves.

Serves 4

5 ½ weight watchers points per serving

Ingredients

450g pack turkey mince

Low fat cooking spray

1 onion

3 garlic cloves, chopped finely

3cm piece fresh ginger, chopped finely

2 tsp cumin seeds, crushed lightly

2 tbsp korma curry paste

200ml chicken stock

200g garden peas

200g cherry tomatoes

6 tsp chopped fresh coriander

 

To serve

125g brown basmati rice

150g pot of low fat natural yoghurt

 

Instructions

  1. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium high heat, add the mince and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently until browned all over. Tip in a colander to allow any fat to drain off.
  2. Mist the same pan with low fat spray, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened, adding a splash of water if it looks like it might burn.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger and cumin seeds to the onion and cook for 3 minutes, stirring all the time.
  4. Add the curry paste and cook for a further 2 minutes. Return the mince to the pan and add the stock, peas and tomatoes.
  5. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Season well and stir in the fresh coriander.
  6. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the pack instructions. Drain and set to one side. Divide the rice between 4 servings dishes, top each with some curry and drizzle with the yoghurt.
