- 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.
