I haven’t posted for ages, using pregnancy as an excuse, I need my rest, cant stay up and blog. Is that good enough umm perhaps not now i’m in my 2nd trimester and i’m feeling more sprightly. I have still been cooking so I have certainly got a good 5 or more recipes to add, Little and often is my new motto.

This dish is soooooo simple and so good.  Especially with the salad as a contrast in flavors the fresh mint and mango are such a good mix.

I didn’t brown the turkey first today, I really should have! if  only for aesthetics. (I generally do prefer to brown but I was feeling lazy!) While it cooked, small unsealed parts of the turkey separated and floated in the mix. This really ruined the look of the dish, I mean it really did.  SO please please brown the turkey, that’s the as hard as this dish gets.


NB when preparing ingredients those in the same colour can be mixed in the same bowl as they are used in the cooking process at the same time. Those in black are to remain separate.

  • 1 tbls of Oil to cook, May need more less use as little as you can.
  • 500g Turkey Breast.  diced
  • 1 Onion Chopped finely.
  • 2 tsp of Hot Chill Sauce. (I used Very Hot Green Chilli sauce By East End as its free from the main allergy’s) 2 gave it a nice kick. 
  • 2 tsp Ground Cumin.
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon.
  • 400 g Tin of chickpeas.  Drained.
  • 300 ml to 400 ml of chicken stock. (Don’t make it too watery, look as your adding it its just a guide) Look at my before pic for help.

  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy sided frying pan medium high heat, add the Turkey and brown on all sides.
