METHI KEEMA MATAR


Keema matar is a very nice combo and mostly paired together. I love methi flavour so decided to add it to the bhuna keema matar for a change, It was really flavourful and delicious. This can be served with roti or pav bread.

Ingredients:
Chicken or mutton mince ....  250 gms
Onions ...................... 2 medium sized ( sliced )
Green peas ............. 1/4 cup
Ginger ............. 1 tsp ( grated )
Garlic paste ..... 1 tsp
Green chillies ... 1-2
Tomatoes ........ 1 medium sized
Methi leaves ..... 1/4 cup
Coriander leaves .. handful
Turmeric powder .... 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder ... 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder .........1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder .... 1/4 tsp
Garam masala .......... 1/2 tsp
Oil ............ 3-4 tbsps


Method:
1. Wash the keema and drain it in a strainer.
2. Heat oil in a pan and saute the onions until light brown in colour.
3. Add the chopped tomato, ginger, garlic and green chillies. Simmer until the tomatoes are cooked.
4. Now add the mince and the green peas and methi leaves. if you don't have fresh methi, you can also use kasoori methi.  Stir fry. when the water dries up, add a little and keep sauteing until you get a nice brown colour.
5. Now add the salt and spice powders and a little water and simmer it until done.
Chicken mince does not take longer to cook. If you are cooking with mutton mince then add more water and cook for a longer time.
6. Garnish with onion rings, boiled green peas and coriander leaves.
Serve with rotis.
