Lamb Keema Ingredients

You only need a handful of convenient ingredients to make our flavour packed minced lamb curry recipe

  • 2 tsp sunflower oil – you can swap for olive oil or butter if you prefer.
  • 1 onion – finely chopped (if you’ve time you can also a tablespoon of grated ginger and couple of grated garlic cloves)
  • 500g lamb mince – you can swap this for other ground meat – like beef, chicken or turkey.
  • 3 tbsp of curry paste – just choose your favourite – I usually use a Pataks Mild Curry Spice Paste when cooking for the kids. (alternatively use a couple of teaspoons of curry powder, a tsp of ground cumin, and tsp of ground turmeric)
  • 200g frozen peas
  • 4 blocks of frozen spinach
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • small bunch of coriander – roughly chopped
  • Pinch of salt

Optional – you can stir a couple of chopped fresh tomatoes through the curry as you add the frozen vegetables. This give a slightly more saucy consistency. If you want it to be very saucy, add a tin of chopped tomatoes.

How To Make Lamb Keema Curry

You’ll just LOVE how easy this minced lamb curry is to prepare and cook!

Step One – sauté the onions

  • Chop the onion – peel and finely dice the onion
  • Sauté the chopped onions – heat the sunflower oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion gently for a couple of minutes to soften.

Step Two – brown the minced lamb

  • Brown the lamb mince – add the lamb mince to the onions and fry over a medium heat the brown it.

Step Three – add the curry paste and frozen veggies.

  • Add the curry paste – stir in 3 tbs of your chosen curry paste and the garam masala.
  • Add the frozen vegetables – add the frozen peas and frozen chopped leaf spinach and stir them into the curried lamb mince.

Step Four – cook the lamb keema curry

  • Simmer the curry – continue to cook for around 15-20 minutes until the meat is cooked through and the spinach and peas hot throughout.

Step Five – serve the keema lamb curry

  • Scatter with coriander – sprinkle over the chopped coriander before serving. And if you like things to be extra spicy, scatter over some finely chopped chilies, green chillies work well.

What To Serve With Lamb Keema Curry

To make our quick and easy lamb mince curry more like a take away curry night add some side dishes when you serve and let everyone dig in and help themselves. I usually add…

  • Spicy Indian salad – a vibrant, fresh salad with chillies and lemons.
  • Boiled basmati rice – or try our savoury rice if you want something a little *extra*
  • Naan breads
  • Popadoms
  • Indian pickle tray – with lime pickle, mango chutney and sometimes spiced onions.
