Chicken Keema Matar recipe ||Side dish or Filling for your favourite type of bread and rice

This is a perfect side dish for many of the main course recipes and it takes lesser time to cook compared to mutton as well.

The way we’ve made the curry you can follow the same method for preparing mutton, lamb or egg curry(keema).
Keema Matar is traditionally made using mutton. But I used ground Chicken since it is also a healthier option for those trying to curb on red meat.

This is a very easy recipe and goes well with Rice, Rotis or Naan.Since we’re using ground meat, the cooking process is fairly quick.The peas in this dish gives it a vibrant color and fresh taste.
