I wanted to post this recipe and found yours O! Chia of the sweet smile. It is a very good dish and yours is almost the same as what I make. Only I use around a tsp. of oil, around 2 onions and really fry the onions well, then add the ginger, garlic, green chilli (don't know what are jalapenos) and saute till golden brown, then add the tomatoes and stir till they are incorporated in the mix. Add the garam masala, a little cumin, coriander (1/2 tsp each), red chilli powder(optional for you as I spice things up a lot) and 1/4 tsp of Turmeric pdr. Then add the mince and proceed exactly as your recipe. Try my variation sometime as I will surely try yours. :) Fay Try it with a bread loaf too! Kheema Pav is a favourite around here!! (Pav is a round loaf bread)

Very flavourful and quick. I am usually more fond of curries with a little more sauce but this was great. I had it with rice and a little raita on the side though. I used smaller superhot chillies from africa and ground beef because that was what I had but it turned out nicely anyway. I took the advice of the other reviewers and added turmeric, cumin and coriander to the list of spices I reduced the amount of peas as well and used only the juice of halöf a lemon. I also added 2 extra freshly pureed tomatoes which gave it a bit more saucy consistency. I would not omit the fresh coriander at any cost as that made a big difference!!! Many thanks for this recipe!!
