Actifry Turkey Kofta Curry

by Helen

I tried something a bit different in the Actifry this week: a kofta curry! 

I chose to use lean turkey mince and low fat yogurt to make this a diet friendly treat dinner. This Actifry Kofta curry is delicious served with chips, rice or in a wrap. 

As with all curry sauces, the more you cook this dinner the more you should experiment with the flavours to suit your families style. You could add fresh chillies or peppers to the sauce if you wish.

Using turkey for these Koftas mean they’re super lean and low fat – turkey mince is amazing for carrying great flavour. 

 

How To Make Actifry Kofta Curry At Home

Scroll down for recipe card and ingredient list 

1. To a food processor add all the kofta ingredients (besides the turkey) and blitz until chopped

2. Then add the turkey mince

3. And blitz until smooth and combined

4. Use floured hands to roll the mixture into bite-sized balls and place onto a lightly floured plate

5. Chop an onion (for the curry sauce) and add this into the Actifry (paddle in) with the oil 

6. Cook for 5 minutes

7. After 5 minutes, remove the paddle and gently place in your koftas (don’t stack them on top of one another if you can avoid that). Close the lid and cook for 5 minutes

8. Whilst the koftas are cooking begin to make the sauce by mixing together all the remaining sauce ingredients

9. Mix until smooth

10. After 5 minutes cooking the koftas should have a drier outer now – don’t worry that some are browner than others, each Actifry has a ‘hot spot’ usually

11. Add the paddle back into the Actifry

12. Close the lid and cook for a further 5 minutes

13. After 5 further minutes, open the lid and add in the curry sauce

14. Again, close the lid and cook for a further 5 minutes

15. Whilst the sauce is cooking roughly chop some more coriander

16. Add it to the Actifry once the 5 minutes is up

17. Close the lid and cook for a further 2 minutes – before serving with rice or naans!
