Vegetarian Keema with Tempeh Easy Peasy Recipe

Last Revised: Thursday, January 17, 2013


If you have read my previous posts you will know that I always like to talk a little bit about the food before showing you the recipe... like wise for today.

Today we will be making  
Vegetarian Keema

Keema is an indian dish..  or some of you might have heard of Keema Matar.. 
45 min

The word Keema actually means minced/ground meat whereas Matar means peas..
This is quite an old dish which is originated from Indian subcontinent. 
Basically you can use almost any kinds of meat for this dish chicken, beef,  etc.. 
I am not sure about using creatures that have more than four legs or no leg... (some old joke from my food review post) You can always try and let me know about it.. 

Keema is a very versatile dish, though is normally eaten with naan, chapatis or bread..
You can have it with rice.. biryani... or even use it as fillings for samosas or curry puff....

This is Simon's Simplified keema recipe... feel free to be creative and add other ingredients that you like..
Since I cant find fresh peas and I find frozen peas disgusting I will not be making Keema Matar..
