Let’s make this spiced minced meat
Ok, this recipe for lamb keema is pretty straightforward. Start with sautéing some onions in oil followed by frying up ginger, garlic and green chilies until aromatic. I like to add some tomatoes for a touch of that tangy flavor to this stir-fry. Now the spices – ground turmeric and red chili powder- gets a quick stir fry in the oil.
Once the spices are lightly toasted, add in the minced (ground) meat. At this stage, you’ll need to cook it thoroughly breaking the lumps as you go. Traditionally, keema is made with minced (ground) lamb or mutton. However, feel free to replace it with chicken or beef if you like.
It’ll take about 7-10 minutes to brown the mince. Now, add in garam masala and coriander (cilantro) leaves to the mince, and give this a quick stir fry. I like to garnish this with plenty of coriander leaves.
Now all you need to do is roll some naans or boil rice to pair with this lamb keema. Done! Delicious dinner in minutes!
