Dark Turkey Meat Leftovers: Keema Masala

font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Cambria","serif"; color:#243F60; font-weight:normal} -->Getting tired of turkey? If you have leftover dark turkey meat, try Keema Masala, an Indian dish that I usually make with chicken thighs, but this works great and if you're getting tired of the turkey deal, you'll never know you're eating it with this tasty dish.

1 lb dark turkey meat, ground in food processor or chopped

½ head garlic, minced
2 T ginger, minced
3 T olive or canola oil

Can coconut milk
2 inch chunk of tamarind, boil 1 cup water and pour over tamarind. Let sit until cool enough to loosen tamarind and mix with water. Squeeze and discard seeds
1 t hot chili powder
1 T salt
2 T coriander
2 T cumin
2 T tumeric
Handful cilantro, stems removed and chopped
1 can chick peas, drained
1 cup peas

Heat oil and add spices, garlic and ginger and sauté over medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Add coconut milk and tamarind juice to taste. Add chicken, chick peas and peas and heat through. Add cilantro at end.

Serve with basmati rice and tossed salad or a cooked vegetable.
