My simple Keema (Indian-style ground meat)

Originally the word Keema is ground meat. It is typically made using ground mutton but can be made with any meat you prefer. I always used ground beef with potatoes and peas. This meat dish taste delicious over plain rice, bread, naan, prata or even chapatti. It could also be used as samosa fillings.

500g ground beef (you can use any ground meat you prefer for this recipe)
2 tbsp vegetable cooking oil
1 medium-sized onions chopped fine
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp each of ground coriander and cumin, and chilli powder
1 tbsp garam masala or curry powder
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
150g frozen peas
100ml beef stock or water
Salt to taste
chopped fresh coriander (I used spring onions since I'm out of coriander)

Fry onion with garlic in vegetable cooking oil over a medium heat for 3 minutes or until softened. 
Stir in ground beef and diced potatoes. 
Add ground coriander, cumin, chilli powder and garam masala/ curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. 
Add beef stock or water. 
Season, cover and simmer for 13 minutes or until the potato is tender.  
Add frozen peas and simmer for 3 minutes. 
Serve sprinkled with chopped fresh coriander, accompanied by warmed naan or over plain rice.
