I plan to visit Turkey from India. I will be traveling via Dubai (Emirates). On my return to India I plan to stay 2-3 days in Dubai.

Do I need to show my Dubai transit visa while applying for Turkey visa to the consulate even though it will be on my return trip since I will be staying in Dubai for 2-3 days on my return trip from Turkey to India?

I will only stay in Dubai while returning from Turkey, not while flying to turkey.

I am trying to ascertain that when I apply for the Turkey visa the consulate doesn't end up asking my Dubai transit visa .

I was planning not to apply for Dubai transit visa until I get the Turkey visa stamped to ensure I don't waste my money in case the Turkey visa gets rejected for any reason.

You do not need to show your Dubai visa as it does not have any bearing on your application for the Turkish visa. In fact, as you don't need a visa to transit through Dubai (unless you are switching airports - or in your case, having a layover), it wouldn't matter to the Turkish authorities.
