Chef’s Inspiration: "This is a recipe taught to me by my husband, just after we were married 45 years ago. He was born in Punjab, in northern India and had migrated at age 19 to Fort Wayne, Indiana to attend engineering school. All of his Indian buddies made a version of this recipe, called Keema Mutter, in their tiny kitchen. It is easy and delicious—as well as being a very healthful main dish. And, like our marriage, has survived the test of time!"
