Brown, crumble and drain the turkey. Set aside.
In a large pan heat 1 tbs oil then saute the garlic, onion, raisins, and celery until quite tender. Then add the carrot and broccoli. While that is cooking prepare the sauce.
In a small pan mix together the curry powder, 1 tsp olive oil, salt, pepper, and flour. Stir over low heat until a paste is formed. Then add the lemon juice, stiring constantly. Constinue stiring over heat until mixture thickens and forms a smooth, brown sauce. All sauce to simmer for 2 minutes while you mix the turkey with the sauted vegetables. Finally add the sauce to the meat/vegetable mixture and stir to evenly coat everything. The mixture should be dry with all the sauce being absorbed or coating the other ingredients.
Allow mixture to simmer a few minutes while you warm the tortillas and prepare the plates.
For each wrap place a trotilla on a place. Spoon in the curry filling and roll up the tortilla. Place about a teaspoon of Low Carb Chutney on top and sprinkle lightly with coconut. Garnish with a few chopped cilantro or parsley leaves.
Serve on a bed of brocolli slaw or shredded cabbage.

jmschaub 1 week agoSomewhat easy to make. I made it with hot curry powder. I also put the chutney on the tortilla prior to putting the meat on there. Good stuff.
Esther987 1 year agoSo yummy and super easy!! I swapped the lemon juice for chicken broth since my hubby doesn't like that much lemon. Can't wait to try it again when I have coconut!
jmschaub 1 year agoThe chutney completes this dish for sure. I enjoyed making it and eating it. Even took a picture :D

lagataverde 5 years agoThey are good, but really lemony. We'll back off the lemon next time, but they are definitely worth repeating!
prosperityksm 5 years agoThank you for the wonderful recipe! I used leftover turkey breast and didn't have fruit chutney on hand, it was still delicious.
