India is on my priority list of places to visit. I WILL make it there someday! The sights, the tastes, the smells, the colors…India is an amazing place and if I could just go there and eat my way through I’d be happy. 🙂
I adore Indian food, and first discovered it while living in England. This Keema do Pyaza recipe is one of my favorites. Keema do Pyaza is a delicious spiced lamb mince simmered with tomatoes and yogurt…a perfect combination. 🙂 This dish cooks up quickly and has a huge depth of flavor due to the spices used: turmeric, coriander, cumin, cayenne, salt, garlic, and ginger.
Masala Box – Essential for Indian Cooking
I have a masala box to keep my spices handy, and I absolutely love it. It stores just the right amount of spices, and it’s great to have all the spices regularly called for in Indian cooking right at hand.
Can you imagine the aroma that is created when you add the turmeric, coriander, cumin, and cayenne to the softened onion, garlic, and chilis? It is out of this world AMAZING!
If You Love Lamb Try This Recipe!
Do you like lamb? If so, you MUST try this recipe! Lamb is one of my favorite meats, and if you like lamb, I can almost guarantee you will love this recipe. 🙂
You’ll want to serve the Keema do Pyaza with an onion salad, and either basmati rice (the KING of rices!) or naan bread. Just add the onion salad on top of the Keema do Pyaza, and then squeeze a bit of the lemon on top (believe me it works!). Serve your creation over basmati rice, or scoop up with naan. ABSOLUTELY DELECTABLE I PROMISE.
Here is the recipe for the Perfect Basmati Rice With Saffron. 🙂
