Kheema – A small batch

April 8, 2013 at 2:03 pm Leave a comment


I originally posted this recipe over 4 years ago without much thought, or a picture, but I’ve since reworked it. Kheema is a traditional South Asian dish meaning minced meat. Typically it’s made with mutton, but really any meat can be used, along with any combination of tomatoes, potatoes, green peas, and chick peas.

1/2 pound ground meat
1 medium potato, cubed
1 onion, diced
1/2 bell pepper, diced (just because I had leftover)
1-2 tomatoes, diced (or 1  14 ounce can diced tomatoes)
1 cup peas (or cut up string beans work in a pinch)
1 cup chick peas
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
2 cloves garlic, grated
chili powder to taste
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon prepared curry powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cumin
salt and pepper

Sauté onions and bell pepper, until beginning to brown
add garlic and ginger, stir and cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds)
add dry spices, stir and cook until fragrant (about 30 seconds)
add tomatoes, stir and cook until they begin to break down
add meat, stir and cook until most of the pink disappears
add potatoes and chick peas, stir and combine
add 1/2 cup water

Stir and cook 30 minutes, covered
add peas
stir and cook an additional 10 minutes, uncovered to cook down the liquid
