Keema Matar Recipe is the spicy, bold mutton mince curry embellished with fresh green peas. Keema Matar is undoubtedly one of our favorite mutton curries from the days when I could not even spell the word keema. The morsel of soft and pillowy Mughlai breads dipped in piquant curry burst with flavors in the mouth. There is a kind of unsolicited comfort in each bite of Keema Matar.

  1. To prepare the Keema Matar, clean, rinse and pat dry the mutton mince.
  2. In a pressure cooker heat oil over medium heat. Add bay leaf and once aroma of bay leaf is released add the chopped onion and green chili.
  3. Fry over medium heat till onion turn dark brown in color.
  4. Add ginger garlic paste along with a tablespoon or two of water. Fry till the raw aroma of paste is gone and the paste turns brown in color.
  5. Now add mutton mince in the pressure cooker and fry for 10 - 15 minutes over medium heat. The color of mince will start changing to pale brown.
