Keema is the other name for minced meat in South Asian dishes. Mutton is a common name used in India for both goat and lamb meats. Minced meat can be used in stew, dry curry recipes. Any type of meat can be used in the recipes that call for minced meat. Most of us came to know at least some of these meat recipes. To name a few, meatloaves, mutton chops or lamb chops, grilled lamb, lamb shanks, roasted lamb, meatballs, kofta and kebabs. Today, I am making minced meat with peas curry with Indian spices.
Brinjal/Eggplant Chops(Side dish for Biriyani)-This dish is known as biriyani brinjal gravy in most of the places. This will come as an accompaniment along with onion raita when we order biriyani from restaurants.
Healthy Finger Millet Chicken Dumpling -One more finger-licking traditional dish always I used to make with roasted rice flour. This is one of my favorite recipes. This is a special dish when there are any family ceremonies or special celebrations take place.
Vegetarian Dalcha -This recipe easily occupies the homemade frozen curry list. Best vegetarian high protein curry recipe for any special day or festive day.
Black gram rice – One of the comfort food with fewer ingredients.This recipe can be accompanied with Fish curry or dry fish curry.
I am using goat meat in this recipe. Some people don’t like the strong meaty flavour that comes from the meats. When you compare it with chicken the meat flavour is stronger. If you want to try meat for the first time or you want to cook meat for someone who is not fond of meat, this recipe is for you.
The masalas suppress the strong meaty flavour and the minced meat easily blends together masala to satisfy your taste buds. The same recipe can be made with lamb meat if you prefer. There is no need to change or adjust the measurements of ingredients.
This recipe can be easily accommodated into your Iftaar time menu as this recipe does not need a long time for preparing it. The vibrant colour and texture of the peas really make the recipe excellent.
