1/2 kg minced chicken

1/2 cup boiled green peas

1/4 cup cream

1/3 cup homemade tomato puree

1 tsp coriander powder and garam masala powder

1/2 tsp red chili powder

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

Salt to taste


Clean and wash the chicken mince. Take a pan and heat the oil. Now, add cumin seeds, bay leaves, cinnamon sticks and black cloves.

Sauté on low flame for a minute. After a minute add minced ginger, garlic, and chopped onion.

Sauté until onion becomes transparent and then add tomato puree to the pan. Stir in all the spices one at a time.

Stir it continuously and cook it for 2-3 minutes. Add butter and minced chicken. Once keema is added to the masala it will release some liquid.

Place the lid over the pan and cook for 10-15 minutes on low flame. Check if the mince is cooked. Then, add cream to keema and mix it well.

Keep sautéing for 5 more minutes and you can notice the oil on the sides.

Now add boiled peas and sauté for another 3-4 minutes. Take it off the flame and serve with warm naans, kulchas or rotis.
