Qeema Mutter

As I mentioned in the previous Rajhisthani Keema recipe that Keema Mutter is my favorite recipe. I mean I used to eat 3 rotis in one time when my mom used to make it back in Pakistan.

This is a very basic recipe which I think should be known by everyone. 

Boys should know this because they should know how to cook everything. That way they don't have to depend on any woman and when the 'wife' tells them "I am leaving you." they can say "GO AHEAD LEAVE."

Girls should know this because its good to know how to cook things.


This is my mom's recipe with a little addition by me.


You Need:

500 grams mince beef/mutton

1 large onion finely chopped

2 large tomatoes chopped

2-3 green chilies sliced

2 tablespoons of chopped coriander

1 cup peas

7 whole black pepper

1 teaspoon of kasuri methi

1 teaspoon ginger paste

1 teaspoon garlic paste

salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder

1/2 teaspoon coriander powder

1/2 teaspoon red chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin powder

1/2 teaspoon garam masala







Now heat oil in a non stick pan and fry chopped onion. Add salt, red chili powder, ginger anc garlic paste. Cook until the water from the onion dries.






Now add chopped tomatoes and coriander, cumin, garam masala, turmeric and coriander powder. Again cook until the water of tomatoes dry.





Now its time to add the minced beef. Cook it until it water dries. If you're in a hurry then cover it up for 10 minutes.





I am using frozen peas and they are pre-coooked. If you are using natural peas then please add them in the previous step as they will take time in cooking.

Uncover the lid and if there is any water left dry it on high heat. Now add 2 cups of water, cover the lid again and cook on medium heat for 15 minutes. This will completely infuse all the masalas and flavor in the minced meat. Take the lid of after every five minutes and give a stir.





Now take off the lid and add the green chilies, kasuri methi and peas. Cook it until the peas are soft and add lemon juice if you want to. Mix in a tablespoon of green coriander and keep the rest for garnishing. The keema mutter is ready to dish out.





Eat it with naan, roti, chappati or boiled rice. Keema Mutter is one of the most delicious desi recipes of all time and it will stay that way till the end of Keema or Mutter.
