Meat and potatoes -- just "different." I love this dish so much. I haven't made it in ages but now that I'm posting it I think I'll have to make it again soon. So delicious!

I loved this dish, too. Creamy, slightly tangy, spicy (but not overly so) and rich-yum. Very easy to put together and both prep and cooking times were accurate. Definitely not boring meat and potatoes.

A definite favorite! I've made it twice now and my family just loves it. We've only just recently started experiencing Indian cuisine and we love it. The only kheema dish we've tried before had more of a tomato base to it, and it was good, but we prefer this one. Next time I might add some cauliflower and have sort of a kheema/aloo gobi mix. Yum! Thanks, Jane, for posting!

I made this as directed for a party. I used yogurt. This is great! and surprisingly several of the kids liked it too.
