2 Cups fresh mint leaves, chopped
3 Cups pre-cooked basmati rice

1 Tbs fresh ginger, chopped
2 Tbs red pepper powder
1 tsp crushed chili
3 Tbs corn oil
1 Onion, diced
¼ Cup Celery, diced

4 Garlic cloves
1 Tbs butter


For the filling:
- Heat oil and butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then add the cinnamon, fennel, slices of lime and the pine nuts, stir.
- Add Cranberries, lemon juice, water (or orange juice), then stir in grated coconut.
- Reduce heat, leave the mixture for 10 minutes, then add fresh mint and stir for 1 minute.
- Finally, add the pre-cooked rice while stirring well, season the filling with salt and pepper, leave aside to cool (tip: do not overcook so the color of the mint won’t be dark)

For the Turkey:
- Wash the turkey thoroughly, dissolve 1 ½ cup of salt in enough water to cover the turkey for 2 hours, then rinse and dry.
- Blend yogurt with the Masala spices, red pepper, chili and oil until the mixture is well combined.
- Lift up the skin of the turkey from the neck side so that half of the mixture is between the skin and the meat.
- Season the inside of the turkey with 1/4 of the mixture.
- Stuff the turkey with the cooled rice mixture and tie the legs so the filling remains inside.
- Spread onion, celery, carrots and garlic in a roasting pan, put the turkey on top of the vegetables.
- Brush the turkey with butter; add a little amount of water on one side of the pan.
- Bake in preheated oven (180 degrees) or according to weight (40 minutes for each kilo)
- Brush turkey with dripping from time to time; cover with aluminum foil for the first half of the cooking time.
- Remove turkey from pan; cool for 10 minutes.
