Minced Beef and Peas/Kheema Mattar

Minced meat with peas is one of the earliest recipes I had learnt from my mom's kitchen. A good blend of colours, vegetables, spices and meat.


500 gms minced beef
1tsp tumeric
8 whole peppercorns
1 big onion finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1tsp mustard seeds
1 cup shelled/frozen peas

2 green chillies finely chopped
2 tomatoes chopped
2 small potatoes chopped
1tsp garam masala
1 lemon juice
fresh coriander finely chopped

  • In a pressure cooker place meat, tumeric and peppercorns and pressure cook.
  • In a heavy bottomed pan, heat oil, add the mustard seeds and splutter.
  • Add the chopped onion and saute.
  • Add the ginger-garlic paste, and chopped chillies.
  • Add potatoes and peas and cook.
  • Then add the chopped tomatoes and cook till the juices seperate.
  • When done add the cooked mince along with the stock and garam masala and mix well.
  • Cook for 2 minutes for spices to blend well.
  • Switch off the flame. Add the lemon juice and mix well.
  • Garnish with freshly chopped coriander and leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Serve hot with rice or phulkas or wholemeal bread.
