About Kheema Matar Aloo Recipe

Another ”comfort” food from my kitchen. There is something about eating hot, aromatic and succulent Kheema with rice that provides great comfort. I have always preferred mutton over chicken, unlike my husband who complains that eating mutton hurts his “teeth”. But he says that my mutton kheema with peas and potatoes is the best mutton dish that he has ever tasted. He makes a request for this dish from time to time. Even the kiddos happily chirp ” Kheema Kheema” when it’s being prepared in the kitchen. So, it’s another favorite in my home. It was a favorite in my maternal home too, we all loved it. Mom always added potatoes to it and I do the same as the potatoes acquire an altogether different “character” when simmered alongwith kheema and the spices; and later, the peas and the ground almonds.

How to make Kheema Matar Aloo

  1. In a thick bottomed pan, heat 1 tbsp oil and crackle the cumin seeds and red chillies. Add the minced meat and cook till it is evenly browned and dry ( this will take approx 10 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 3 tbsp oil and fry the onions till they turn golden brown. Add the ginger and garlic, saute for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and chilli powder.
  3. Now add the chopped tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Tip in the prepared mince and cook for 10 minutes, while stirring frequently.
  4. Stir in the curd and cook for 2 minutes on a low flame. Now add the salt along with 2 cups of water and the potato cubes. Cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  5. Add the peas and simmer for 5 minutes. Now stir in the ground almonds, the garam masala powder and cook for another 2 minutes.
  6. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve it hot with chapatis, paranthas, pulao and raita.

My Tip:

You can quicken the process by pressure cooking after adding the water and the potato cubes.
