Keema spaghetti /Pasta is basically a meat sauce pasta using minced meat. It will be a favourite amongst kids and adults too.
250 gm beef mince
3 onions, chopped
3 tomatoes, blended with skin
some whole pepper, 2 cloves, 2 cardamom pods
1/4 cup plain yoghurt – whipped
salt to taste
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
2-3 tbsp chopped coriander
400 gm spaghetti or pasta
Heat the oil in a pan, add the whole pepper, cloves and cardamom pods. Let them fry for a few seconds, then add the grated onions. Fry them until golden brown, now add the garlic and ginger pastes, Fry for a couple of minutes, then add the tomato paste and the turmeric, coriander & cumin powders. Once these have cooked together slightly, add the mincemeat, and sort of fry it into the mixture for 2-3 minutes until the colour changes slightly.
Add the blended tomatoes and a bit of chopped coriander. Cover and simmer together until the tomatoes are cooked and getting dry, and the oil begins to separate from the sides. Add the yoghurt and red chilli powder plus the green chillies. Cook for a few minutes on low heat making sure the yoghurt is well blended into the mince, and adjusting salt/chilli to your liking. If you prefer a vivid colour in your curry, you can add a bit of fried crushed onions or extra tomato paste. If you like your curry on the dry side, then do not add any extra water, let it dry .
Once done, sprinkle garam masala and chopped coriander over the top .Give it a quick mix and you’re done!
Boil your spaghetti or pasta as per package directions and drain. Then add the keema curry and stir together until well combined. You can add a tbsp. or so of ketchup ,soya sauce or chilli sauce if preferred.
