Turkey fillet simmered in gravy with potatoes

The turkey fillet in gravy is a true traditional classic. This easy to make and filling dish is perfect for those who would rather do something else than spend the entire afternoon in the kitchen making dinner. A simmered turkey fillet goes perfectly with boiled potatoes, and no dinner is complete without a serving of vegetables, which is why we have decided to add a fresh cucumber and natural yogurt salad.
Recipe: 60 minutes
  • one double turkey breast
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • lemon juice from half a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • seasoning: salt, pepper, 1 teaspoon sweet paprika, cinnamon and turmeric
  • 8 large potatoes
  • approx. half kg regular or picking cucumbers
  • 1 large cup natural yogurt
  1. Wash and dry the turkey breast, dice it and put into a glass bowl.
  2. Add pressed garlic and all the spices, mix thoroughly and put in the fridge for an hour.
  3. Peel the cucumbers and grate them coarsely, add a dash of lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste and the yogurt. Mix the ingredients and put them in the fridge.
  4. Peel and boil the potatoes.
  5. Heat up some oil in a pan, put in the marinated meat and fry on both sides until golden.
  6. Add a bit of water and simmer until tender. If the meat starts to stick to the pan, just add some water.
  7. Pour 1/4 cup of water into a small bowl, add flour and mix thoroughly. Add some of the sauce from the pan into the mix and add the entire contents of the bowl to the now-tender meat.
  8. Stir and wait until it becomes thicker.

Toss the potatoes on the plate, add meat. Serve the cucumber salad in separate bowls.
