1 Preheat the oven to 200°C, 400°F, gas 6.
In a roasting pan brush the turkey with the oil and rub the salt, pepper, paprika and ginger evenly into the skin.
Roast for 25 minutes per 450 g (1 lb), turning the oven down to 180°C, 350°F, gas 4 after the first hour.
2 Cook the rice in the boiling salted water until tender.
Rinse and drain.
3 Fry the onion and garlic in the oil for 4 minutes until soft.
Stir in the flour and fry 1 minute.
Add the spices, stir to blend and cook 1 minute.
Pour in the rest of the sauce ingredients, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes until the sauce is thickened, stirring frequently.
4 When the turkey is cooked, mix the cooked rice with the pineapple, halved grapes and orange rind.
Place the roasted turkey in the middle of a large serving dish and arrange the rice around it.
Pour the sauce over the turkey, reserving some in a sauce boat.
Serve immediately with curry side dishes - yogurt, poppadums, sliced raw onion and fruit chutney.
Tip: The spices in this recipe can be replaced by commercial curry powder, if desired.
