Kima Matar


how to cook keema matar

Its only the scarcity of something that makes you versatile. If you are totally desperate then you will try everything to make that empty place fill in again. And yes..I am going through that phase right now.You may have heard it a lot of time from me but I am telling you again...I don't not get different veggies here. Although potato is a staple ingredient in our meals but I tend to avoid that whenever I can. So I have to do away with different meats to fill in my stomach. We don't get mutton here so easily but what I get is more delicious than mutton. We get lambs.

 And more than the meat I love the minced lamb more. It can be used as a filling of momo. You can make Irish meat pie with it. You ca use this infused with some spices to make the filling of a roll. It can go easily with burger and lots more. But I did...what I do best. I went for something Indian. I made Kima Matar.
I was basically thinking about making Aloo Matar but then I remembered that I have minced lambs in my refrigerator. So add kima in place of aloo and your delicious Kima Matar is ready in no time. Its super fast and easy and it has a tangy taste in it..which is just yummyyy!!!
