I love kheema, so I had to try this. It was definitely a lot easier to make than the other kheema recipes I've tried, but it was a tad bit bland because the cooking time is so short... so I added some garam masala at the end (about a teaspoon) and the flavor of the dish perked right up. Oh, I also chopped up a serrano pepper and put it in with the onions- I loved the heat it gave to the dish. Thanks for sharing this quick and convenient Indian recipe!

I had some issues with the directions with steps 2 and 3 been duplicated and there seemed to be something missing as when you have to simmer for 10 minutes the mixture is dry so I put the water and sauce in at this point and simmered for the 10 minutes and I also added in some diced carrots, cauliflower and broccoli flowerettes and then had to continue added some more water (about 1 1/2 cups) for about another 20 minutes to make sure the potatoes were cooked through as it simmered but I think this was an advantage as it allowed the spices to develop and really release their flavours into the dish. In the last 5 minutes I added the defrosted peas and chickpeas and served over rice and we enjoyed a curry dish that warmed you from the belly up and did not burn your mouth as you took a bite, just how we like it and I served with some flat bread for an all round good meal, thank you Pammyowl, made for Healthy Choices.

Excellent recipe, and really nice to be able to enjoy a "curry"sort of meal without cooking it for hours. Enjoyed the spices, I had some baby potatoes so took 5, chopped them in half and added, I left the skins on. My only real change was to leave the peas to defrost in some water and add them at the very end, just to warm though. Excellent meal enjoyed on rice, made in loving memory of a dear friend, Pammyowl, taken too soon.
