  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Sprinkle the cinnamon into the oil and stir until fragrant. Stir the onion into the cinnamon oil and cook for 5 minutes, until softened and golden in color. Stir in the garlic, ginger, and turmeric, and continue to cook for 3 additional minutes. Pour in 1/4 water and cook for 2 minutes, adding a bit more water if mixture is too thick.
  2. Stir the green chilies, turkey, chili powder, garam masala, and the rest of the water into the sauce. Cover and cook for 10 minutes until mixture has thickened to sauce consistency, adding additional water if mixture looks dry. Taste the curry and add salt if needed.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • To make a mild version of this fiery dish, leave out the green chilies and add just 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder to the curry.

This curry tastes just like the curry at an Indian restaurant! I added a little madras curry powder without the green chile peppers in the dish to add a little more curry flavor.

Add more chili spice, and more hot peppers, as well as more garam marsala

Ground turkey was used in place of the cubed cooked variety. I only used 1 pepper, and the meat mixture was hot enough for me! Great taste!

This is great as printed. The only change I made was to use about a half of a 4 oz can of green chilies, as I didn't have fresh. I'm sure it would be better with the fresh. It is quick and eas...
