In a heavy based saucepan, heat 2 tbsp of the olive oil then add the cumins seeds and bay leaves. Cook for 1 minute.
- Add the garlic, ginger, and chillies and cook for 2 minutes.
- Add the onions and cook for 5-7 minutes until they begin to soften.
- Add the tomatoes, ground spices (saving ½ tsp of garam masala and the cinnamon for later), and MaRobert's sauce of your choice. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the tomatoes are soft.
- Add the turkey breast, season with salt and pepper, cover the pan and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Meanwhile, in another saucepan, heat the remaining oil and add the garam masala and cinnamon. Cook for 1 minute.
- Add the peppers and cook for 5 minute, stirring often.
- Add the peppers to the main pan, stir well and cook for 3-5 minutes. Ensure the fragrant oil from the pepper pan goes into the main pot too.
- Add the spring onions, top with fresh coriander and serve as required.
