This is a very simple dish yet very satisfying. The dish can be serve with bread, chappati, rice or even spaghetti. I like to prepare my keema in thick gravy. So I would always add some milk (I used evaporated milk.. I always have a can on the shelf).


500 g mince meat

2 large onion (diced)

1 packet meat curry powder (abt 4 tbsp)

2 cinnamon

2 star anise

3 cloves

3 cardamon

3 cloves of garlic and 1 cm ginger (grind to a paste)

4 potatoes (diced)

2 tomatoes (diced)

½ cup green peas

1 cup milk

Juice from 1 lime

Salt to taste


Heat a little oil in a deep pan. Throw in all spices, cinnamon, star anise, clove and cardamon and stir for a while. Add in diced onion and ginger and garlic paste. Stir until fragrant. Then add in curry powder and mince meat. Cook until meat is browned. Add a little water. Then add in potatoes and tomatoes. Add a little water and cook until potatoes have softened.

Add in milk and lime juice. Season with salt.
