  • Melt butter in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 8 minutes. Add garlic and ginger; cook for 2 minutes more. Add turkey; cook and stir until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, coriander, cumin, ground chile, turmeric, masala, and cinnamon. Stir well.

  • Add potato, peas, tomato sauce, water, and bay leaf. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until potato is tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Add bell pepper and cilantro; simmer until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes more.

  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a separate pan over medium-high heat. Saute rice in the hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until rice is tender, 20 to 40 minutes. Drain off excess water. Add cinnamon, cloves, salt, and pepper.
