Day 133: Pakistan and Matar Keema

Good evening, Raffies!

Today we are going to another country with far too many delicious dishes to choose this one was tough..but I remember from my childhood that I liked this Pakistani dish with minced meat and peas..thus, Matar Keema it is!

The recipe is very simple.

500 g minced lamb
250 g matar (peas)
1 onion, finely chopped
6 tbsp oil
freshly ground black pepper
6 clovers
1 black cardamom bud
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp turmeric
2 tomatoes, chopped and peeled
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp garam masala
fresh coriander
naan to serve

Sauté the onion in oil until golden. Add all the spices and the tomatoes. Add some water and cook on medium heat until dry. Now add the minced meat and 2 cups of more water. Cook until the meat is done and the water is almost completely absorbed. Add the peas and cook until done. Garnish with fresh coriander and drizzle with some lemon juice. Serve with naan.

The dish is really easy to make and you are done in less than 15 minutes. The spices make the whole flavour simply perfect. You should really try it if you haven’t already! What other Pakistani dishes do you like?
