According to a tweet we came across, “Simple is best and nothing is simpler than Mrs Balbir Singh's keema.” Try Mrs Balbir Singh’s wonderful mince and pea curry tonight, it’s easy to make and so flavoursome. You could switch out the lamb for chicken, mutton or goat mince or your preferred vegetarian option of course. With its roots in Mughlai cuisine, this is probably one of the most popular keema dishes in Indian cookery.
60g Ghee (or your preferred Oil)
5cm Cinnamon Stick
4 Black Cardamoms
115g Onions, grated
½ tsp Red Chilli Powder
450g Minced Lamb (or your preferred vegetarian mince substitute)
2 Bay Leaves
1½ tsp Salt
1 tsp Turmeric
30g Ginger (or Ginger Paste)
6 Garlic Cloves (or 6 teaspoons of Garlic Paste)
225g Blanched, Peeled and Chopped Tomatoes (or tinned chopped tomatoes)
225g Frozen Peas
½ tsp Garam Masala
1 to 2 Green Chillies, finely chopped
Red Onions, finely chopped
2 tbsp Coriander Leaves, chopped
Serve hot sprinkled with your choice of the above suggested garnishes. Best served with chapati, naan or basmati rice.
