Indian Keema with Peas

3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 Tbl. finely chopped fresh ginger
1 tsp. finely minced garlic
1 Tbl. vegetable oil
1 Tbl. curry powder
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
1/4 tsp. ground coriander
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1 lb. ground meat, such as lamb, beef, or veal
1 cup chopped fresh or canned tomatoes
1 Tbl. lime juice
1 tsp. sugar
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 tsp. crushed hot red pepper flakes
1 cup peas

Combine the onion, ginger, garlic, and oil in the container of a
food processor or blender. Blend to a fine puree.

Spoon and scrape the mixture into a small skillet and cook, stirring
often, until mixture almost starts to brown, but do not brown. Add
the curry powder, cinnamon, turmeric, coriander, and cumin and stir
to blend.

Add the meat and cook, stirring and chopping down with the side of
a heavy metal spoon to break up any lumps.

When the meat has lost its raw look, add the tomatoes, lime juice
and sugar. Add a generous grinding of pepper and the hot red pepper.
Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes.

Add the peas and continue cooking until the peas are tender, 5 to
10 minutes. Serve with rice, cucumbers and yogurt, carrots with
yogurt or mint with yogurt.

Yield: 4 servings

Don't forget to always add fresh chopped cilantro (a.k.a coridander)about 1/2 cup coarsely chopped just before serving. I also add about 1 tsp garam masala at same time.
