KEEMA MATAR (MINCED MEAT WITH PEAS)

Minced Meat Recipe  @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

This hearty meal of Keema Matar  is normally a rich and heavy dish but here we keep it light and fresh by using very little oil and leanest meat either minced beef/lamb or mutton.

My son loves to scoop it up with some naan or chapati but it would also be good over rice.  Normally it uses various spices such as coriander, turmeric, cumin and chili powder individually  but now am using ready made meat masala powder  that was available from local market or supermarket.

I'm not a big fan for green peas but they were absolutely perfect in this dish.  They lend a slight sweetness among the spicy  meat and juicy tomatoes. Cubed potato is also included in this Keema Matar.

It is the same story at my home. No one appreciates matar in the keema and I invariably have to leave it out. I would love to have this curry with rice :D
