I think I saved this recipe in 2005/2006. I mentioned it to a friend who is Indian and she said that it is called Kheema Curry, and she had a different spicing which I tried and liked even better (except I omitted the chiles because I am so spice wimpy right now. Her recipe is bracketed in between the ----- lines. The original naan recipe is below but when I made them they looked more like English Muffins, so next time I am going to let them rise and then slap them on my heated pizza stone in the oven instead of baking in situ on the baking sheet. Everything was very tasty and super simple for a low energy week night.

2 tsp ground cumin
3 tsp ground coriander seed

1 cup peas
2 tsp garam masala
salt to taste
1 Tbsp chopped coriander (I actually add a lot more, as well as a squeeze of lime)
Heat the oil in a pan; add the whole garam masala. When they start to crackle and splutter, add the onion, and fry until golden brown.
Add the minced meat, garlic, ginger and chillies, and fry until the meat is brown; break down any lumps that form.
Add turmeric, paprika, red chili powder, ground coriander, and ground cumin; stir and add the tomatoes.
Bring to boil, mix in the yogurt, and add the peas. Simmer until the peas are cooked.
Add the salt and garam masala powder, mix well, and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve with rice or chapati.
