Keema Muttar

To get a great tasting keema dish you must ensure that you buy mutton and get it minced in front of you and not use the ready made one available . Personally I don't like mine minced , but get it chopped - you end up with more flavors and a bite. Add mutton bones to keema when cooking it , flavors go to different levels . Most important , a long and slow bhuno is what will be the deciding factor in how good your dish will taste.
500 Grams Keema + some bones /pieces of mutton on the bone.
1 Black Cardamon + 3-5 Black peppercorns ( to flavor the oil )
5-7 Dried Red Chilies.
1 Large Onion Chopped.
2 Tomatoes Pureed.
1 Heaped Teaspoon each Ginger & Garlic Paste + 1 teaspoon freshly ground jeera powder + 1 Tablespoon Dhania powder + red chili powder made into a paste with some water.
Freshly Made Garam Masala :
5-7 Black Peppercorns.
2-3 Green Cardamons.
4-5 Laung.
1" Cinnamon
Grind the above to a powder without roasting.
1/2 Cup Peas - Blanched 10 Seconds.
Lots of Mustard Oil
Smoke mustard oil , take off heat , add black cardamon and peppercorns and then return to heat and 5 seconds later add dried chilies. Next add onions , cook till medium brown , add keema + bones , bhuno over high heat for 5-7 minutes to dry out the water , then reduce heat to medium low and bhuno well for 15-20 minutes till keema changes color to darkish brown and looses that raw smell, sprinkling water IF needed.

 Now add salt and haldi and tomatoes along with the ginger garlic paste spice mixture , cook covered till oil separates - maybe another 10 minutes . Again add a splash of water if needed.When keema is 90% cooked , add peas and the freshly made  garam masala . Cook over high heat for 3-5 minutes  to give a final bhuno , add a dash of water if needed.When done take off heat adding 1 teaspoon of ghee .Allow to stand covered 10 minutes , adjust flavors . Totally divine .
