  1. In a large frying pan with a tight-fitting lid, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey and brown quickly; remove from pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and add garlic, onion, sweet potato and turnips to the pan; sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Season with cumin, coriander, black pepper, chillies and salt. Do not let garlic brown.
  2. Mix in stock, browned turkey, and any accumulated juices. Place lid on frying pan and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Remove lid and stir in the peanut butter and chickpeas. Ensure the peanut butter is blended in. Replace lid to simmer for 10 more minutes or until turkey is cooked through and potatoes are tender. Remove from heat, adjust seasoning and serve.
