With the holidays around the corner, turkey dinners make their grand appearance once again. Since whole turkey is so readily available in stores this time of year, many South Asian families take this opportunity to share turkey with their families. Growing up, we didn’t have turkey, mostly because my mom wasn’t sure how to flavour the turkey to suit our South Asian taste buds. What she didn’t know was that turkey is such a versatile protein that it can be flavoured in many ways, even making it spicy enough for a South Asian dinner! Serving a whole turkey is also a very economical way to feed a large group of people, making hosting your large family much easier.
I love bringing together South Asian flavours with more western ingredients to give life to an exciting new menu. This South Asian inspired dinner will have your elders and youngsters asking for seconds!
