Mutton Kheema

This is one of H's mother's authentic Bombay mutton kheema recipes. It was so satisfying and quite easy to prepare! there are a few steps that are important to follow to ensure it turns out perfect...

1 lb mutton/ lamb mince
1 large potato, cut into small pieces
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp chilli pwdr
2 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp haldi
2 tbsp yogurt
1 green chilli, chopped fine
olive oil
cilantro, for garnishing

Wash the lamb mince and strain to remove all water. This is important if you want to make dry kheema. Make sure all the water is squeezed out thoroughly. Marinate the mince with all the spices, ginger-garlic paste, and salt. Set aside for 15 minutes.

In a shallow pan, add 1/2 tsp oil. When hot, add the cut potatoes and fry lightly. Then add the green chillies, and saute for 30 seconds. Add the mince and yogurt. Mix well and stir. Cook for 5 minutes, and when water has somewhat evaporated, lower flame and put the lid on. Cook for 20 minutes until potatoes are cooked through. Serve with naan and yogurt.

Just made it and it's really good! A couple of substitutions I made because I didn't have potatoes and yogurt on hand were turnips and sour cream. YUM!
