Keema Methi Recipe pinit

Keema is a centuries-old dish that originated in the Moghul Empire, and it’s still popular today. This delicious meat curry with peas or potatoes can be made from almost any type of meat (chicken keema? Beef keema?) And while there are many different ways to cook this tantalizing dish–by stewing it until tender or by frying up kababs–the versatility leaves room for creativity!

Keemas present two options: you may either start off by mincing your choice of meats into tiny pieces before adding them to an aromatic sauce containing onions, garlic, ginger root paste along with other spices like cumin powder; alternatively one could also fry the minced mutton on low heat.
