Lizzy Keema Nom Nom

Submitted by: HEALTHYNOW4ME

Introduction

This recipe is a modified Keema, or ground meat casserole dish, with extra garam masala and other ingredients, especially spices, added. Don't add more spices! AFTER you've eaten your first serving, you'll have a good idea of the heat level of the spices already in this keema.
We ordinarily would never buy veal, but we picked up this 'meatloaf mix' of ground meat at the market & didn't realize it contained veal until afterward. Using beef/pork without the veal will not substantially change the nutritional values.

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    2 lbs ground beef, pork & veal
    1 1/2 c chopped sweet onions
    2 1/2 c diced tomatoes
    1 1/3 c frozen peas
    1 3/4 lbs diced (3/8" or smaller) Klondike Gold yellow potatoes
    1 1/3 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 1/3 tsp turmeric powder
    4 cloves garlic, put thru garlic press
    2 tbsp thinly shaved fresh ginger root
    2 1/2 tbsp Garam Masala
    salt & black pepper to taste (approx. 1/4 tsp each)

Directions

Brown the ground meat with the onions and garlic in a 3 qt or larger skillet.
Add the potatoes, peas, tomatoes, and spices.
Bring your keema to a simmer, and cook covered for 30 minutes. When it's done, it should have some liquid thick enough to coat all of your ingredients. If it's thicker than you like, you can add some water slowly to thin it.
Serve with heated naan, or over brown basmati rice or other rice or ww pasta of your choice. (none of these are included in the nutritional information for this recipe)

    this was soooo good, I wanted another serving immediately! but it wasn't too heavy/rich, and a piece of heated naan was perfect with it. - 5/8/11

  • This is much closer to what I actually use when making Keema. Many thanks - it is a favorite of ours. LOTS of flavor and really good for you. I use ground biston (buffalo) for even less fat and more nutrition. - 6/12/11
