Chundo Jo Saak – Ground Beef Curry

Chundo Jo Saak Recipe

Chundo Jo Saak is a ground beef curry made with potatoes and peas.  My hubby Brett calls it Indian shepherds pie.  Ground beef can be quite fattening, so I substitute the beef with ground chicken to save some calories.  The end result still tastes awesome and I would definitely recommend this option if you’re watching your waist line (like I always am!).

I really don’t like it when the potatoes get mushy and break up in the curry.  An extra step that I do to prevent this is coating the potatoes in olive oil and baking them in the oven before adding them.  The potatoes develop a skin to prevent them from breaking up and taste so much better this way.

Peas are the other main ingredient in this dish.  They are a great combination with the meat and potatoes.  The peas make the meal healthier as well,  love that!.  I use frozen peas to keep it simple.

Chundo Jo Saak goes really well either rice or rotli and some yummy Gajar Jo Athano (Carrot Pickle) on the side.
