Minced meat or keema is used in a variety of dishes such as a stewed or fried curry dish of minced beef, mutton or even chicken. The word ‘keema’ ultimately comes from the Turkic word qıyma meaning ‘minced meat’, and is thus related to the Persian qeyme, Turkish kıyma, and Greek kimás. This is a real basic recipe – super easy and very tasty. The salt here really makes / breaks the dish so make sure you taste it and adjust it as needed.
