How to make Keema Matar

  1.  In a bowl  add fresh  green peas or matar,  add water,  salt 1/2tsp and haldi 1/2tsp.  Keep the bowl on the gas and let the peas cook.  When cooked strain the peas and keep aside.  If using frozen one then skip this step.  But fresh peas add more flavour  to the dish. 
  2. Peel and chop onions,  tomatoes  and green chilies and keep aside
  3. If keema is too fine, add half cup of water to the keema.  If not then no need of adding water. 
  4. Heat ghee and oil in a pan.  Add zeera and whole garam masala  to the oil.  Then add chopped onion  and fry up to golden brown. 
  5. Then add garlic and ginger paste  to it and fry in high flames  for  2 mins.  Then  add chopped  tomatoes  to it and  fry again. 
  6. After a couple of minutes  add all dry spices except garam masala  and little water to it and cook  again. 
  7. When oil separates from masala  add the keema to it and fry for 2 to 3  mins in high  flames  and later lower the flame and allow to cook. 
  8. When keema is cooked properly and oil started ozing  out of the keema add garam  masala  to it.  Taste the dish,  balance the seasoning  and also add some water if it required.  Then add chopped  coriander  and mint leaves and switch off the gas..
