  • 2 1/2 lb turkey leg meat on the bone
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 10 floz natural yogurt
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 8 oz onions skinned and sliced
  • 3 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1/4 pint chicken stock or water chopped parsley to garnish


  • Cut the turkey meat off the bone into large fork-sized pieces, discarding the skin; there should be about 900 g (2 lb) meat.
  • In a large bowl, mix the spices with the seasoning, yogurt and lemon juice. Stir well until evenly blended.
  • Fold through the turkey meat until coated with the yogurt mixture. Cover tightly with cling film and refrigerate for several hours.
  • Heat the oil in a medium flameproof casserole and lightly brown the onion. Add the coconut and flour and fry gently, stirring, for about 1 minute.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the turkey with its marinade and the stock. Return to the heat and bring slowly to the boil, stirring all the time. Cover tightly and cook in the oven at 170°C (325°F) mark 3 for 1 - 1 1/4 hours, or until the turkey is tender.
  • Adjust the seasoning and serve garnished with parsley.
