Ground meat with green Peas or Keema matar, is probably one of the most popular keema dishes in Indian cuisine.

They would love to have as the meat pieces are thoroughly minced or ground soft and easy to chew. The keema matar can also be the best stuffing for pita bread or samosa.
To prepare the Keema matar, take a fresh meat and mince it. It you buy the minced meat by itself there are chances for them to add old meat also into it. In a pan heat the oil, whole cardamom and cinnamom pieces. I avoided using the whole clove because while eating if the piece of clove comes in between it gives a strong flavor. Add cumin seeds, chopped onions, salt, ginger garlic paste and mix well. Fry till the raw smell of ginger garlic goes and onions become golden in color. Add mince meat or keema and mix. Add chopped tomatoes, chilli powder, yoghurt cover and cook for 10 to 15 mins. Add chopped green chillies and the boiled green peas. Add potato cubes and garam masala powder and mix well. Cook till the mince meat and veggies get tender. Lastly add some crushed garlic and pepper, chopped coriander leaves and mix. A nice aroma of the garam masala and fresh coriander fills your room. Remember if the green peas are tender or fresh than add it near to the end of preparing the dish as they get cooked fast. There’s something about this dish being so special because of its spices and flavors that get entwined with the ground meat that makes the dish a delight in every bite.
You can also prepare the same dish with chicken mince, beef or turkey meat.
