Kheema Mattar (Ground Lamb and Peas)

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Cluich

This is a fantastic dish from northern India. It can be made with ground chicken, turkey, or pork, but it's best when made with lamb.

This had the perfect amount of spice for the lamb, and the peas had just the right pop. I served it over white rice, and my picky husband and 3-yr old son both gobbled it up!
