Keema Mutter – the healthier version

This very tasty minced lamb/mutton dish with peas is commonly known as Keema Mutter. Tonight however, I cooked the healthier version using turkey mince.


Serves 3 – 4 people

  • 1/2 quantity of  tomato based sauce
  • 500g lean turkey mince
  • 2 cups of frozen peas
  • boiled water from the kettle
Serve with steamed rice


  1. Please see tomato based sauce recipe and make half the quantity for this dish
  2. Once the sauce is ready add the turkey mince and cook through for about 5 minutes
  3. Add frozen peas to the mince
  4. Add about 2 cups of hot water from the kettle to the mince – stir and simmer with the lid on for 20mins stirring every few minutes
  5. If required add more water during cooking – the dish should be a little runnier than a bolognese sauce
This can be served with steamed rice, roti or naan bread.
This is a great example of when a frozen portion of the sauce would come in handy for a quick weekday meal!
