Description Edit

Kheema is a minced Lamb curry which has potatoes and Peas in it. It's a Punjabi dish - and is extremely tasty when served with rice or roti - or pitta bread: you choose! Once again - it's really easy to make.

Ingredients Edit



Just get the following stuf together:

  • 2 packets (say 800 grams of lean minced Lamb)
  • 4 medium potatoes - chopped into bite-sized chunks
  • 2 medium onions chopped finely
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • Half a bowl of frozen Peas
  • The usual chunks ginger, chillie, garlic from your freezer (thawed of course)
  • 2 (heaped) teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3(heaped) teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 and a half teaspoon of haldi (turmeric)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin

Directions Edit

So: get a largish pot - and heat up a couple of tablespoons of your usual vegetable oil in it - we use cholesterol-free sunflower oil. Get the chopped Onion frying until they are golden brown. Then add the pulped garlic, ginger and chillie to the pot and continue frying on medium heat.
