What to Do With Thanksgiving Leftovers

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is actually the day afterwards. That’s when I can dig into leftovers and eat turkey sandwiches to my heart’s delight. But even I can tire of turkey after a few days. For those looking for a more imaginative twist on turkey leftovers, check out Samin Nosrat‘s Turkey Tikka Masala.

This twist on the Punjabi-style curry gives a new life to leftover turkey. The turkey is marinated overnight in yogurt, turmeric, garam masala and garlic paste, imparting deep flavors and moisture. Tomatoes and cream add warmth, while serrano peppers give the tikka masala its kick. Serve it alongside steamed basmati rice for a deeply satisfying meal.
