Keema matar (mince with peas) is the spiced up Indian version of traditional mince and onions or bolognese! The dish is a good example of the ancient principles of Ayurveda, and the medicinal value of spices incorporated into Indian cookery. The savoury lamb, hot chilli and the sweet pungent spices, (cinnamon, cloves, green and black cardamon) all balance each other, creating a harmonious dish said to provide a warming effect on the body, aiding digestion of the meat. We’re serving the dish with some delicious homemade samosas, a fiery carrot pickle, simple veg subji and a cooling mint raita.

It looks incredible, nice one!


Keema Marat with Pooris and Jeera rice. This was my first meal from the book and I’m stunned at how good and easy to follow each recipe is. From a Chef of 17 year who’s even worked with India food in the past. A+++
