today the weather in germany made a total u-turn and cooled down for several degree..the whole morning was kinda chilli and foggy and also it rained a lot..so no salad today...not even one tiny green leave..its a day for a real meal..something rich and substantial...healthy but still tasty..:-)
so i decided to feed you some of my favourite moroccan turkey..i often do this recipe also with chicken meat but since we just had chicken a few days ago i decided to make it in a traditional way..with turkey...
my mother spent a lot time in morocco when she was younger..it always was one of her favourite destinations and she never became tired of telling adventurous stories about her travels to this beautyful destinations and always was up to cook some tasty stuff she had learned to prepare there...
okay..this is once more a tasty but still fast done recipes...
you need :
400-500 gramms of turkey meat cut in pieces
a red onion cut into rings
1 tea spoon grounded cumin
half a tea spoon cinnamon ( i always use more since i love the sweet-spicy taste of cinnamon)
1 red pepper/ can be replaced by 1 rea spoon tabasco
a eating spoon ketchup
3 quarters of a tin of chick peas
600 ml of chicken stock
a bit sugar, just for the taste
20 dried apricots
2 eating spoons of fresh cut cilantro ( make sure that you really like cilantro..i always use a lot of it but most people dont like its special taste)
a big sweet potato cut into half slabs
and some couscous...prepare it the way its been discribed on the box..its easy..i alsways have a little twist and prepare it with saffron, broth or a somered wine instead of water..how ever you prepare it..make sure to put a decent amount of butter in it in the end..
okay..got it all ready to hand?..perfect..just put on your favourite music...pour yourself a good glas of wine..and start the whole procedure..get a big pan or a big pot....put the turkey, the onion, cumin, cinnamon, tabasko or red pepper,chick peas, ketchup, sugar, sweet potato and the chicken stock inside...stirr it all up...yes..mix it really good and put the heat on...make it boil..reduce the heat and then let it cook on little heat for about..hm..lets say 15 minutes...use the time to drink some more..to choose the right kind of lingerie for you personal 1001 and one night happening tonight..but dont forget to stirr now and then..the food i mean...
now..throw in the apricots ..make it cook again, reduce the heat again and let it cook on small heat for about 15 minutes more until the meat is done..
put the cornstarch in a glas..mixed with water, stirr it properly ( i dont wanna see any clumps) and whisk/mix it with all that great smelling stuff in your pot...make it cook some more while you keep on stirring until the fluid starts to concentrate...now take the pot from the fire..mix the cilantro underneath the dish...and just serve the mofo of a exotic & sexy meal with the couscous...enjoy..really its delicious..:-)
