Dinner: 474kcal
42g protein, 8g fat, 55g carbs

5g organic butter, ghee or coconut oil
100g white onion, finely chopped
160g lean turkey breast mince
(or use low fat vegetarian turkey mince)
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh ginger, finely chopped
1-3 chillis (optional)
5g madras curry powder
150g passata
40g white or wholegrain basmati rice (dry weight)


1) Melt the butter, ghee or oil in a large nonstick frying pan. Add the onion, and sauté gently for 3-4 minutes until softened.

2) Add the mince and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring. Add the garlic and ginger and chillis and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring. Add the madras powder and passata and stir well. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

3) Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil. Reduce to a simmer, and add the rice. For timings, follow pack instructions (note: wholegrain rice takes longer than white rice). If using white rice, avoid stirring too much as this can cause the rice to become too sticky. When rice is cooked, drain and leave for 2-3 minutes to stand. Serve.
