Combine the cumin, the turmeric, the coriander, the lime zest and the cayenne pepper and put in a large Ziploc bag before popping in the chicken fillets.

Seal the bag and shake it well to cover the fillets completely with the spices – set aside for an hour.

Pour a little oil into a skillet and sear the chicken breasts until they are no longer pink on the inside – set aside.

Stir fry the onions, the ginger, the jalapeno peppers and the garlic until the onion is translucent and soft before adding the tomatoes and cooking for a further 5 – 10 minutes.

Stir in the coconut milk and half the fresh coriander leaves, pour over the chicken fillets, garnish generously with the rest of the coriander leaves and serve.
