Keema is made with minced meat or – as I make it – with veggie mince (Tesco, Sainsbury’s or Realeat are my faves, I’m not a great fan of Quorn). You may recognise the name if you’ve ever asked for a Keema Nan in a curry restaurant.
Like all our curries, it’s very easy to make, but a little different. Keema is started off in a pan but then transferred to an oven dish where you let it bake for about 30 mins resulting in a drier than usual curry dish. The resulting mince is perfect to fill samosas or a “curry to” (that’s our curry version of a burrito, BTW) by rolling the meat into a chapati. You could even make your own Keema nan! This is my sister and brother-in-law’s favourite of all our curries.
If you fancy, you can add extras like peas, chopped potatoes, etc. Use your imagination, the important thing is the fresh spices and the resulting deliciousness.
Our Keema easy peasy curry pack is billed as a medium-heat, but you can easily add more fresh chillis if you want to make it hotter.
If you’ve never tried it, you don’t know what you’re missing. Why not add Keema to your next order and live a little.
