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.
