Ground Beef Curry (Kima Curry)

Ground Beef Curry (Kima Curry) created by Storm Serpent

This recipe is from one of my new favorite cookbooks, Extending the Table. The notes on this recipe say that this Swahili dish is served by a restaurant in the heart of Nairobi. I have only modified it to make the recipe fit into Zaar format, to preserve the authenticity of the recipe. This is a very mild, very easy to make curry.

    simple and straight -forward, this dish had a delectable spiciness that had little to do with heat and more to do with depth of flavor. good weekday go to.

    Very tasty! Made some subs for missing ingredients but still came out excellent.<br/><br/>Had to use a can of unsalted diced tomatoes since I didn't have whole and used a little ketchup instead of plain tomato paste. <br/><br/>I messed up part of the cooking instructions for the onions/beef (Forgot to put the oil first, whoops!) but it didn't seem to matter much. It's not a very spicy curry, which is perfect for me, since I'm kind of a spice-wimp. X3 but it's wonderful over some hot rice!

    Just what I was looking for. I doubled the meat and most spices, 4x the curry powder, added a few fresh hot peppers and fresh grated ginger. Also I used chick peas and carrots and 3 fresh tomatoes but didn't have paste. I also forgot to add the cilantro but no matter, everyone loved it! Fast and easy, thanks so much! A keeper for sure!
