Aloo Keema – Minced Lamb With Potatoes

Aloo Keema – Minced Lamb With Potatoes

For us, whenever I cook minced lamb or chicken,we look forward to the leftovers more than ever. Having leftovers of such dishes in my fridge is utterly comforting for the next couple of days, simply because the ways to eat them are plenty – garnish with lots of fresh herbs and here you go – tuck them inside rotis (flatbreads) with pickled onions,stuff between buns or simply turn into a sorta shepherd pie. I sometimes combine them with pasta also.Potatoes & pasta? Well, I have a (weird)palate for that kinda stuff too.Lets just keep that story for some other day.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb minced lamb/beef/chicken (I use 80% lean)
  • 2 medium potatoes, cubed
