After a long time we took out pressure cooker recipe booklet and decided to cook from it. Amma said we should start with it as those cookbooks have been with us for a while now. Seeing this different take on our regular mutton keema
, she was hesitant to try. However I said we should try it as we never change from our recipe at all
As expected boys didn't like the keema being in a different colour, rather not their usual brown curry colour and in green. However rest of the folks liked it a lot and infact felt it was more rich and nice. The original recipe calls for omelette strips to be placed on the plate and served with this mughlai keema. I was somehow not for it and skipped it.
So stay tuned for some more recipes coming from the pressure cooker booklet!
