Keema is a pretty regular Indian dish that gets made around our house frequently. It’s simple, fast, and super tasty. Plus you can eat it a million different ways! Not sure what it is? Keema is an Indian dish that is made with ground meat. You can choose from pork, turkey, beef, chicken, goat, or lamb! The possibilities of this dish are truly endless!
The other great thing about it is you can add all sorts of veggies like potatoes, peas, peppers, etc. I’m sure the ones who make it the traditional way would disagree, but I love switching this dish around to fit what we are wanting to eat that week. *READ: what veggies are in the fridge this week?.* #truth HA.
I love making Indian food at our house, because one of the best things about it is that there are always leftovers. My mom used to make so many dishes on every Sunday, which would easily get us to the middle of the week! I am starting to lean towards this plan because it makes the beginning of my week so much more easy! Not to mention the intense amount of flavors with Indian food!
