Curried Sloppy Joes

November 23, 2013


Author Notes: Introducing Keema, a traditional Indian dish made with ground meat and spices. It's simple to make yet oh so flavourful. The best part about Keema is the endless ways it can be served. I love it paired with some roti (traditional Indian flatbread) or naan. You could even make yourself some sloppy joes - just serve the Keema on top of the bun of your choice!Health Dish
