Tomato, Potato, and Pea Kheema

I’ve been saying I was going to make this Kheema for weeks. We had it last night. The recipe suggests serving it with plain Greek yogurt, almost didn’t do it. The yogurt added a perfect bit of creaminess to the spicy dish. Kheema is a traditional meat dish of Pakistan and India. It has many variations. This was a yummy first attempt at making this type of dish at our house.

Tomato, Potato, and Pea Kheema

I’m just sharing the link because I didn’t change anything about it. I do have a few thoughts. The recipe suggests combining ground meats. I used beef and turkey. The recipe suggests beef and lamb are also great. I hate to admit this, but I think it was too spicy. I did use a green chile, the original recipe makes this optional. I also used cayenne, the original recipe suggest cayenne or paprika. Next time I would either use a chile or cayenne, not both. I served it with rice, but Naan would also be good. The yogurt was a great addition!

  1. Oh yeah...I wanted to say this was a great "piece meal" for the kids. I served them the ground meat I took out before adding the spices. They had peas and potatoes I roasted seperately as their sides.
