  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 500g turkey breast mince
  • 1 onion, finely chopped 
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped 
  • a thumb-sized piece ginger, finely chopped 
  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped 
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 400ml chicken stock
  • 250g frozen peas
  • a small bunch coriander, finely chopped
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 4 rotis, warmed


  • 200g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • a thumb-sized piece ginger, finely grated


  • STEP 1

    Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan and cook the turkey mince over a high heat for 5 minutes until it's starting to brown and the liquid has evaporated. Turn the heat down, add the onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 5 minutes until beginning to soften. Add the garlic, ginger and chillies, and cook for a further 5 minutes until the onion has softened. Stir in the spices and cook for 2 minutes, then pour in the stock and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the peas and cook for 5 minutes, then add the coriander, lemon juice and season.

  • STEP 2

    Toss the salad ingredients together with some seasoning, then spoon the kheema matar into bowls and serve with the rotis and tomato salad alongside.
