This is an utterly savoury mince dish cooked in a Parsi style (you can see I like Parsi cuisine)

We really truly enjoyed this recipe. We eat a lot of keema but the normal indian way, so it was great to try something new. So quick and easy and smelled great with the curry leaves! I used ground turkey for health reasons, and it was fabulous. I bet it's even better with lamb/beef! Thanks for another awesome recipe!
