Leftover Chicken Curry

You can also use leftover turkey to prepare this comfort dish.

For maximum flavor use the most aromatic curry you can find. I like the mild Sharwood curry but a curry paste can also be used. If you like hot an spicy food use a medium or hot curry. This dish can be refrigerated for 3 days and if you freeze it bring back to a boil over low heat to reconstitute in a smooth sauce. To roast almonds scatter them on a baking sheet and roast 5 to 10 minutes in a hot oven.

Kitchen hack

After whisking liquids in the roux, stir with a wooden spoon to prevent the sauce from sticking to the pot and  render a metallic taste.
