Really good, I just added some cinnamon. Quick, easy, OH loved it and made a change from turkey curry.

This was a great recipe and good way to use up the leftover Christmas turkey. I found I didn't need to add the 150ml water. The consistency was just right without it. Will definitely make this again, using leftover cooked chicken.
