Turkey keema..oHH awesome taste.. I am so glad that I tried out this dish, because I absolutely loved it. I used Home made garam masala in this dish .. Ingredients of keema in South Asia usually include minced meat, ghee/oil/butter, onions, garlic, and ginger together with spices including cinnamon, bay leaves, and cloves. Some varieties may include peas (matar) and/or liver (kaleji). Oftentimes, to give it enhanced richness, the keema is cooked in ghee instead of oil..Keema can be made from almost any meat, can be cooked by stewing or frying, and can be formed into kebabs. Keema is also used as a filling for samosas or naan.. This is how I make my Keema.
