A simple recipe I picked up in Vietnam. With a few aromatic ingredients you can transform your leftover turkey for an altogether different festive supper.

For the rice, place the grains in a large heavy bottomed saucepan with a lid. Add cold water and using your fingers swirl the rice to wash it. Drain the water and repeat two more times until the water becomes clearer. Drain completely and then top up with 600ml of water.
Bring to a steady boil and stir through to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom. Lower the heat and bring to steady simmer. Continue to cook and stir until the water looks like it has been absorbed.
Place on a lid and cook on the lowest heat for 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to sit for 8 minutes. Fluff up with a fork and recover until you are ready to serve.

For the curry, in a bowl, combine the lemongrass, chilli, garlic.
Heat the oil in a wok or a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Add the lemongrass mixture and stir fry for about 1 minute until fragrant. Then add the curry powder and stir-fry until aromatic. Add the turkey and sugar snap peas and stir-fry for 4 minutes until the pieces are completely coated.
Pour the chicken stock into the pan and stir in the sugar and fish sauce. Simmer for a few minutes until the stock has reduced and you are left with a thick sauce. Stir through half the herbs until just wilted.
Serve with rice and garnish with the herbs.
