Ground Turkey (or Lamb) with Hyderabadi Seasonings
From "At Home with Madhur Jaffrey"

3 Tbsp olive or canola oil
1 tsp whole mustard seeds
1 tsp whole cumin seeds
2 hot dried chilies
10 fresh curry or 5 basil leaves, torn up
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 lb ground turkey (dark and light meat)
1 Tbsp ground coriander seeds
1 tsp ground cumin seeds
4 Tbsp plain yogurt
1 cup peas, fresh or frozen defrosted
1 tsp salt
1/2 + 1/4 cups water

Pour the oil into a frying pan over medium high. When hot put in the mustard seeds, the cumin seeds, and the red chilies. As soon as the mustard seeds begin to pop (a couple seconds) add curry leaves and onions. Stir and fry until the onion turns brown at the edges. Add the garlic and ginger, stir half a minute. Add the turkey. Turn heat to medium. Stir and break up all the lumps in the meat. Add coriander, cumin, yogurt, and 1/2 cup water. Stir and bring to boil. Cover, turn heat to low, and cook 35min. Add the peas, salt, and 1/4 cup water. Stir to mix. Cover and cook another 7-10min.

Serve with khichri (a dish of rice & peas), pappadoms, and indian pickles or chutney.
