Mutton Keema Pao

Hello Friends,
               Keema pav is a famous recipe from Mumbai. I tried this recipe in one of the famous restaurant in Bangalore at the time of Diwali and decided to try it at home.
Restaurant was little oily and spicy so I decided to make my own version with less oil and less spicy.
Sharing the recipe with you all, hope you all will like my version :)
500 gm mince mutton
1/2 cup green peas
3-4 cloves
1" cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
A pinch of cardamom powder
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1 large onion (finely chopped)
2 medium size tomatoes (finely chopped)
1 green chilly (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp mutton masala
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp red chilly powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 small cup water
Garnish: Fresh coriander leaves (finely chopped)
6 pav
  • Boil green peas in heavy bottom pan, till they are cooked. Drain and keep them aside.
  • Heat oil in a non-stick kadhai, add cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf and green cardamom powder.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and saute till it becomes light brown in colour.
  • Add chopped onion. Mix well and saute till they become golden brown in colour.

  • Add tomatoes, mix well. Cook covered till the oil separates.
  • Add all the dry masalas (garam masala, coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, mutton masala), mix well.
  • Add minced mutton, mix nicely. Add water and cooked cover.
  • Keep stirring in between. Mash in between. 
  • Cook till oil starts floating on the top. Add boiled peas.
  • Mix well and cook on high heat for couple of minute till the mince is little dry.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh coriander leaves.
To Serve: Heat butter in a non-stick pan. Cut pav horizontally into two pieces and pan fry in butter till pav is crisp and light brown.
