Author Notes

Keema, which means minced meat in Urdu, is an immensely popular dish in India. It can be made with any minced meat and my friend Tonuca makes it with minced turkey and it is also great with vegan quorn. When made with Masala Mama’s Vindaloo sauce, it’s super easy and delicious as the mince absorbs the flavor of the sauce resulting in a piquant & spicy dish. I like adding potatoes and frozen peas. A versatile dish, you can have it as a snack, with toast or as a meal with rice, naan or even make a taco with it. —MasalaMama
