The Mughal influence on Indian cuisine brought about the widespread use of ground meat in various forms, and kheema dishes became popular due to their flavorful and versatile nature.

Kheema Matar, in particular, combined the minced meat with the seasonality of fresh green peas, often available during the winter months, creating a dish that was both nutritious and satisfying.

Today, Kheema Matar remains a beloved dish in Indian households and restaurants, celebrated for its rich taste, hearty texture, and the comforting combination of tender minced meat and sweet green peas.

This dish also freezes really well. I usually freeze them in small quantities for a no cook day.
