Mutton Keema Masala

July 24, 2013 Motions and Emotions 7 Comments

Mutton is the preferred meat to the non veg lovers but it is considered as red meat. As we all know, frequent consumption of red meat may increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases, various types of cancers, uric acid, arthritis, diabetes, autoimmune diseases and many more diseases. Now the question comes "Should we stop eating mutton??"

And the answer is "No, not at all". Eating red meat once in a while in a limited quantity is acceptable. :). You will say "mutton in limited quantity, how is that possible??"

Possible dear! You can make lovely dishes with minced mutton. You can buy minced mutton from market or buy bone less mutton pieces and mince it @ home using the mincing blade of your food processor. Mutton Keema Masala is a special dish for Iftar.

Heat oil in a pan and fry capsicum and potato with salt and turmeric powder. Keep them aside. Now add bay leaf, dry red chilli and garam masala whole for seasoning. Next add garlic paste and followed by sliced onions. Add a pinch of sugar it will caramalize the onion and give them a nice color & texture too.
