Keema -matar (minced meat and green peas) with mint leaves

1 pound Minced meat (I usually prefer turkey. Chicken, beef. pork, lamb or goat is ok too)
3/4 cup - Green peas
1 big - Onion, chopped finely
1 piece - Ginger, chopped finely
1 tbsp - Garlic, grated
3 green chillies or 1 jalapeño chopped. You can use 1 habanero if you want it really hot !
2 small - Cinnamon sticks
2 pods - Cardamom seeds, crushed
3 - Cloves
1 - Bay leaf
1/2 tsp - Whole Coriander seeds
1/2 tsp - whole peppercorns
1/2 tsp - Red chili powder
1/2 tsp meat masala
Salt to taste
3 tsp yogurt or sour cream
Mint leaves to garnish

Heat oil in a pan and fry onions until golden brown. Add garlic, ginger, cardamom, cinnamom, cloves, bay leaf, coriander seeds, peppercorns, green chillies and fry for 3 - 4 minutes.

Add minced meat, peas and fry for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until meat turns brown. Use a hand mixer to mix evenly. Add yogurt. Cover and cook on low heat until meat is cooked . Garnish with mint leaves.

I love the crunchy coriander seeds and peppercorns in this dish, and the mint flavor. If you don't fancy mint much, you can add cilantro instead, or other seasoning. It is good with rosemary or kasuri methi too.
