Aloo Kheema (potatoes Cooked With Chicken Minced Meat)

A simple and easy curry with kheema. Ideally I would make kheema with green peas but on days you have no stock of frozen peas, potatoes always come handy. This curry also makes a good stuffing for samosas, sandwiched and stuffed paranthas. Gobhi is also a good combination if you do not want potatoes.
