Turkey Fry

Turkey is naturally low in fat without the skin, containing only 1 gram of fat per ounce of flesh. A 5-ounce serving provides almost half of the recommended daily allowance of folic acid, and is a good source of vitamins B, B1,B6, zinc and potassium. These nutrients have been found to keep blood cholesterol down, protect against birth defects, cancer and heart disease, aid in nerve function and growth, boost the immune system, regulate blood pressure, and assist in healing processes.

There is probably no other food that evokes images of celebration, family, friends and giving thanks than turkey. November is the month noted as the season for enjoying turkey but its wonderful taste and nutritional value should not be reserved just for the holidays as it is available to enjoy year-round. "No Thanksgiving without Turkey"

Turkey is a very good source of protein. A four ounce serving provides 65.1% of the daily value for protein, along with 11.9% of the daily value for saturated fat, about half the amount of saturated fat found in red meat. The structure of the human body is built on protein. We use animal and plant sources of protein for our amino acids and rearrange the nitrogen to make the pattern of amino acids we require. (Source)

My hubby is a fan of turkey... He introduced me to this Turkey fry and I started liking it. Turkey is big sister of Chicken and it taste similar. If u are diet conscious, turkey is best choice for protein. My sincere advise to y'all, Don't make curry with turkey.. ur whole kitchen will stink.. My sis in law had bad experience.. So i always make fry with turkey!!!!


½ lb ground turkey
1 onion
1 tbsp g&g paste
1 tbsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp fennel seeds
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a pan. Add fennel seeds. Once the aroma fills out ur senses, add chopped onion. Fry till the onions become transparent. Add g&g paste. Sauté for couple of mts. Add ground turkey and salt. Cover cook for 5-8 mts in medium flame. The turkey oozes out lots of water. Remove the cover and stir for 5 mts. Add the masala powder and sauté for couple of minutes. Let it cook until all the moisture is absorbed/ evaporated. It should be a dry fry. Garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve hot with Chapatti or rasam rice!!!!
