2. In a large bowl, mix the spices with the seasoning, yogurt and lemon juice. Stir well until evenly blended.

3. Fold through the turkey meat until coated with the yogurt mixture. Cover tightly with cling film and refrigerate for several hours.

4. Lightly brown the onion in the hot oil in a medium flameproof casserole. Add the coconut and flour and fry gently, stirring, for about 1 minute.

5. Remove from the heat and stir in the turkey with its marinade and the stock. Return to the heat and bring slowly to the boil, stirring all the time. Cover tightly and cook in the oven at 170°C (325°F) mark 3 for 1 -1 1/2 hours until the turkey is tender.

6. Adjust the seasoning and serve garnished with parsley.
