The ground beef is simmered in chicken broth flavored with tomatoes and basic Indian spices that most of us already have in our pantry. Which means, there is no need to run to the Indian food specialty store to get the exotic spices.
What do you need to make Keema curry?
All you need to make this curry is a pound of ground beef, onion, ginger, garlic, tomatoes, peas (I used frozen peas), chicken stock, and a handful of fresh cilantro.
Spices you need
- cumin powder
- curry powder
- cayenne pepper
If you don’t want this curry to be too spicy, you can omit the cayenne pepper, and that is perfectly fine.
Enjoy the nice aroma coming out of a pot of simmering curry filling in your kitchen as you wait. That is to say, the simmering time is only for 10-15 minutes total. Serve this simple ground beef curry with fluffy Basmati rice or Naan bread and you are good to go.
