This is a very simple, weeknight meal one can whip up in no time. Keema is one of my favorite things to eat and make. Keema is essentially ground meat cooked in spices, onion, ginger and garlicthe rest is up to you. Aloo keema is a dish made of spiced minced lamb, simmered with potatoes and peas. Traditionally, it is made with minced lamb, but I use ground turkey.

This is a dish I grew up eating; it’s a popular Indian meal and there are many variations of this dish. Keema Matar curry is a ground meat and peas curry that’s very popular in South Asia. Traditionally in India, this slow-cooked dish is made with mutton and is served at special occasions. I have reworked the traditional recipe, taken a couple of shortcuts and used my favourite protein, turkey mince.

Turkey kheema matar (mince and peas curry) with tomato salad. Packed with fresh and zingy flavours and plenty of punchy spices, this low calorie Indian curry. Sprinkle in the fresh English peas.

Stir well and simmer, partially covered, about 10 minutes or if using frozen peas, add them now, and cook another 5 minute. It is very good with peas and rice but needs raitha (whipped yogurt with cukes and other veggies) to really bring out the flavor. It makes a nice pita filling when.

If you are using fresh peas then boil them till tender before adding them to the keema.

Fresh mulukhiya is most often used to make soup (extremely popular in Egypt, Syria, and Jordan), and the leaves are sensitive to overcooking, which causes them to fall to the bottom of the soup pot instead of remaining suspended in the broth.

  • Feels like that food preparation is for himself! Because when he said little bit of onion (it’s for listeners ) but he is pouring too much onion (obviously that’s his liking)! That’s funny! Thanks for the cool yummy recipe…

  • Hi chef, your recipies look awesome, only one problem, like some other chefs that give the exact amount of ingridients, the exact amount of spices, you don’t. I believe there were folks also in previous recipies that also asked about this. Could you please give the amount of ingridients in your recipies, thx chef.

  • Looks good! I need real cumin seeds-I only have the powder. I’m sure it will make a huge difference. Also, need to try putting seasonings in before the meat and fresh tomatoes

  • Hi there Chef! I enjoy your recipes. They have helped me very much since I started cooking after marriage.:) I have a question. Would you recommend that I brown my ground meat before I add them to the curry to remove the fat from it?

  • @deepica PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.. WHAT IS THE SECRET to your glowy make up!!! Primer? Powder? It’s stunning!!!! I really want to know what base you use to get that!!!

  • its kheema..if u knw little bit about urdu u can find the difference..two different letter in urdu for k,one pronounce khaaf,other is kaaf..and kkeema start with khaaf

  • this is an excellent recipe, the only thing misleading is the time he says it takes, unless you par boil the potatoes whilst your doing everything else this dish will take around 1 hr to make before the potatoes are suitably cooked 😉 this is a great recipe and tastes delicious, thanks chef!!!

  • tried this today lam sorry to say there wasn’t a lot of taste compared to other curries I’ve cooked from YouTube very disappointing.

  • Thanks for the recipe-two observations: onions were more like a cupful and not ”4” onions as you recommend. Which one is correct? Please use a wooden spoon/spatula for mixing,stirring etc especially since you appear to be using a non-stick pan!
