Trying Kima

I made another new recipe the other night–I’m on a roll, lately!  This one is called Pakistani Kima–I got it from a friend and have no idea where she found it, so I really can’t give the original cook credit. :)

I didn’t get home from work until after 6:00, and this is a really simple recipe, so that was part of the appeal.  It starts with chopped onion and garlic and a pound of ground beef (I, of course, used Bob’s grass-fed beef).  Then you add a can of diced tomatoes, two potatoes (cubed), two cups of peas (the recipe calls for frozen and I had my good, fresh-frozen ones from our CSA), curry powder, salt, and cinnamon.

Well, you might know where I’m going here (no, mom, I didn’t add wine). 😉

But we both really dislike cinnamon in savory foods, so I skipped the cinnamon.  I did add a bit of extra curry, though.

I had used both white fingerling and purple potatoes, and it was so colorful–it looked like a party in a pot.

Of course, through the cooking process the colors were muted quite a bit.

It was good.  Pretty good.  Not great.  I decided that, with all the wonderful, delicious recipes I’ve already tried in the past couple of years, I don’t need to hang onto this recipe since it was just ok.

But that’s what makes it so much fun, I guess, when I do find a recipe that we think is fantastic.  If they were all great, it would be boring, right? 😉

I think I’m going to try Vegetarian Korma tonight. . . I’ll let you know how it goes.
