Creamy European-style Turkey and Vegetable Curry

We bought some turkey the other day at the supermarket for a reduced price – only $6 for two very large and meaty drumsticks. After boning them out, we decided to make this deliciously mild, European-style curry. If you don’t want to use turkey you could certainly supplement this with other poultry, such as chicken.

In attempting to make currywurst we formulated this fantastic ketchup recipe. We’re not really sure if this tastes like what they serve up in Germany, but hell, it tastes like gold to us!
