Looking for a way to use up that leftover turkey? Why not try this low-fat turkey curry
Buy a nice pack of flavoured ready-made rice to serve with this dish on Boxing Day
Tip the can of tomatoes into a large saucepan and add 300ml (½ pint) water, stock cube and curry powder. Place the pan over a medium heat and bring the mixture to the boil, stirring so the stock cube dissolves and simmer for a couple of minutes.
Add the turkey and onion to the pan and bring the contents of the pan back to a simmer. Simmer the mixture gently for about 20-30 mins, until the onion has softened.
Add the red pepper and courgette to the pan and simmer the curry, uncovered for about 10 mins, until the vegetables have softened and the sauce is a coating consistency.
Stir in most of the chopped coriander and season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle remaining chopped coriander over the top. Serve the curry accompanied with boiled rice.

2 small heads pak choi, leaves separated and large ones chopped
Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the pork for about 5 mins until browned on both sides. Take it out of the pan and set aside.
Add the onion, pepper, ginger and cinnamon to the pan and fry for 5 minutes. Add the pineapple, 3tbsp of the pineapple’s syrup, and the tomatoes, ketchup, vinegar, stock cube and 150ml (¼ pint) water. Bring to the boil, and then simmer for 10 mins to let the sauce thicken.
Put the pork back in the pan and simmer for another 5 mins. Mix the flour, or cornflour, with the rest of the syrup to make a paste, add to the pan and stir until thickened. Add the soy sauce, and more vinegar if needed, to taste.
Cook the noodles according to pack instructions, adding the pak choi to wilt. Serve with the sweet and sour pork. (Not suitable for freezing).
