Ground spiced chicken gets cooked in mild spices and the beautifully aromatic kasuri methi.
Heat a wide bottomed pan - a karachi or wok is best - and add a lug of cooking oil
When it shimmers (i.e. is hot) add your onion and cook till the edges are golden brown
Then add the ginger and garlic pastes, saute for a quick minute
Now in go the salt, red chilli powder, turmeric, and coriander powder
Give them a quick whirl and add the ground chicken
Mix energetically on medium high heat until the chicken looks cooked (keep breaking up chunks)
Now add the peas
Saute for another 5-7 minutes until it starts to take on a darker hue. This is key because it will give your qeema better flavour.
Now turn the heat down, add the yogurt and methi. Mix well.
Cook on low for about 5 minutes, then add your garam masala and green chillies
Mix, taste, adjust seasoning.
Top with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of lemon (optional)
