“Keema Matar”, meaning spiced mince with peas is a traditional South Asian dry-style curry that’s simple to make, but really flavourful. We’ve done ours with lamb, though it can be done with any ground meat. It’s delicious with rice or wrapped in warm Indian naan breads like an Indian burrito, or in a bun as it’s eaten on the streets of Mumbai. If you’re lucky enough to have any leftovers, they’ll be even better the next day.

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    If you’re having rice, cook according to packet instructions and keep warm.

  • 2.

    Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a wide frying pan over high heat. Add the onion and stir fry for 3-4 mins, or until lightly browned. Add the Garlic Paste and stir quickly before adding the lamb mince. Break up the lamb with a spoon and fry for 2 mins.

  • 3.

    Add the Keema Curry Paste and stir well. Add the chopped tomatoes, 1 tsp of sugar and the Garam Masala. Stir well to combine. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for a couple of mins.

  • 4.

    Add the peas, stir gently and continue to simmer for 4-5 mins.

  • 5.

    Warm up your Indian style breads by gently frying them in a pan with a splash of oil or toast them under a hot grill. (If using frozen breads, cook as per packet instructions.)

  • 6.

    Serve the keema matar in a bowl, with rice if you have it, or on its own with Indian breads on the side to dip into it. Place your cucumber and tomato salad and yoghurt for dipping on the side, if using.

Tasty but a little greasy. Perhaps because I used 500g lamb because that was the pack size

Kerry - Oct 12, 2018

Loved it, even though I bought beef mince instead of lamb as recipe suggested. Will try with lamb next time and I'll probably love it even more.
