What is Christmas without some turkey? Jr Sous Chef Dhaval Ajmera of ITC Grand Central in Mumbai shows you how to make whip up a delicious roast turkey.


  • 1 turkey breast
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Few drops Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp Hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp chilli oil
  • 1 tsp crushed pepper
  • tsp honey
  • Few drops soya sauce

For the garnish:

  • Fine coriander sprigs
  • Parsley sprigs
  • Bell peppers
  • Diced vegetables and chestnuts

Method of preparation:

  • Mix chopped garlic, Hoisin sauce, Worcestershire sauce, crushed pepper, honey in a bowl and marinate the turkey breast.
  • Note that the breast has been pierced in a few places for better marination. Leave it for 24 hours at best or at least for 12 hours.
    Heat olive oil in a pan and toss the marinated turkey breast.
  • Cook on slow flame so it gets cooked from inside. Remove on kitchen paper and let the oil drip out.
  • In a plate place some broccoli and chestnuts -- these are the best accompaniments for turkey -- place the turkey breasts on the plate and add bell pepper, parsley, vegetables and chestnuts
  • You can also pour just a little bit of chilli oil on the edge of the plate to make it more interesting
