Keema Matar

Keema matar is a delicious dinner party dish that can easily be prepared at home with simple ingredients. Pair this mutton keema recipe with fresh garlic naan or boiled basmati rice for a wholesome meal.

This mutton keema curry is a delicious blend of minced meat and peas in a thick masala gravy of aromatic cumin seeds and an array of powdered spices for a delectable curry meal. The perfect dish for curry night!

I absolutely love keema curries. Whether it’s a simple keema curry or an aloo keema, or any type of minced meat curry.

I usually use mutton or lamb mince for this keema recipe. However, you could use chicken mince if that’s what you prefer. It’s up to personal preference and what you prefer eating yourself. Chicken mince does take less time to cook, so be sure to adjust cooking times accordingly.

You can tweak this recipe to give many different variations. You could add some potatoes along with the peas. Another idea is to add one of my all-time favourite vegetables, bell peppers! I’d add bell peppers to everything if I could. I even made a capsicum curry recipe dedicated to my love for this vegetable. It’s delicious.
