Sumptuous Keema Alu Mutter

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Anumita, our Managing Editor, shares the recipe of keema alu mutter, a sumptuous and protein-rich main dish, in the weekly column. A Different Truths exclusive.

Our Friday evening meal is often something we all look up to. It is the day to unwind and relax. I love a glass of wine and a movie on Netflix after dinner. My family loves goat meat (mutton). I usually cook goat meat in a pan and it takes more than 3 hours. Keeping my family’s choice in mind, decided to cook minced meat or Keema.

The usual keema is cooked with mutter or peas, I added cubed potatoes to add variety. Keema is both enjoyable with rice, roti or paratha.

Hope you all enjoy the Keema Alu Mutter recipe I am sharing with you today.
