In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high. Add the garlic, ginger, jalapeno and shallot and cook, stirring often, 3 minutes. Stir in the spices and cook 30 seconds. Stir in the tomatoes, scraping up any browned bits.
Transfer the sauce to a blender and puree. Return sauce to the pan, stir in the cream, season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Add the chicken, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Stir in the peas; simmer 5 minutes.
Divide the rice among bowls and top with the chicken and sauce.
