Kheema - Ground Mince


1 lb ground meat (Beef or goat)
1/4 cup frozen petite peas
1/2 tbsp finely chopped ginger
1 tbsp finel chopped garlic
1 1/2 tbsp Shaan Kheema Masala
1/2 large onion minced
1-2 nos. Thai green Chilie pepper finely chopped
salt to taste
1 no. medium size tomato
1/2 cup washed and finely chopped cilantro
Juice of 1/2 sour lime
1 tbsp cooking oil (I used canola)
Optional - 1 large potato diced into 1" pieces


In a pressure cooker heat oil , then to it add the minced Thai Chillie peppers, fry for 1 min then add the minced onions, fry with a hint of salt till onions turn translucent , then add the ginger,garlic , followed by the tomatoes & let it cook till the tomatoes soften. Now add the Shaan Kheema Masala. Let this mixture fry well for a 3-4 of minutes then add the washed n drained mince to the mixture along with the diced potatoes.Fry on high heat for couple of minutes & keep stirring continuously. Now add salt as per your taste (but keep in mind that the Shaan masalas already have some salt in them). Cover n cook for 8mins. Once done release the steam & open the cooker. Now add 1/4 cup of Frozen peas. I use petite frozen peas which do not take long to cook n hence cook in the steam of the mince itself. Lastly garnish with chopped Cilantro n Lime juice. Can be eaten with naan, roti , chapati or loaf (pav).
