How Many Times Can You Reheat Curries? 

The good news is that you can safely reheat curries several times before they start losing their flavour. However, it’s important to store any remaining curry correctly in between meals. That way, when you come back for seconds (or thirds!) you know it will be as tasty as the first time around 

The best way to reheat a curry is to heat it up in a pot or pan on the stovetop over low heat until hot throughout. Alternatively, if you’re short on time, pop it in the microwave for a few minutes until piping hot! 

Storing Turkey Curry 

Any leftover curry should be stored in an airtight container.This will help keep it fresher for longer. It's best not to reheat your curries (or any other leftovers) more than once; Although it should be generally safe, depending on what the food contains. 

If you’re using our curry kits, there probably won’t be too much left over to reheat anyway - yes, they’re that delicious.

Accompaniments for Turkey Curry 

Your turkey curry can be enjoyed alone but why not try something different? There are plenty of accompaniments that would pair perfectly with your dish such as naan bread or poppadoms which can be bought pre-made from most supermarkets or made at home easily enough! 

You could also try serving your curry with a side of steamed basmati rice or even some chapatis if you have them handy! To top off your meal, why not make a simple raita using yoghurt mixed with cucumber, mint leaves and salt? This refreshing condiment will help balance out any spiciness from your curry without overpowering it too much!  

How Long Will Curry Last In The Fridge? 

If stored correctly in an airtight container in the fridge, turkey curry should last up to four days before it starts going off - after this point, bacteria can start growing and contaminate your food which would result in food poisoning if eaten. 

So if ever unsure about how long something has been stored for, always err on the side of caution and bin it instead of risking getting ill.

Although we recommend the Jalfrezi Heatwave curry kit for your Christmas dinner leftover turkey curry, we sell a range of different flavours. Why not check out our curry kits, and choose your favourite. 

So there we have it – a complete guide on how to make the most out of your Christmas leftovers with some delicious turkey curries!

Just remember - store any leftover curries safely in an airtight container in the fridge and only heat it through once before enjoying again.
