Material arrangement

  • You can make spices other than curry powder without it.
  • You can make ground beef or ground pork instead of chicken breast (it will be a little greasy)
  • If it’s for children, I’ll go without chili peppers.
  • If you add yogurt or  fresh cream at the end of the stew, it will be mellow.

This time, it’s a keema curry made without stir-frying ground meat.

The rice to go with the curry is cooked by mixing purple sticky barley.

How to make


Chop the onions, garlic and ginger.

Remove the stem of the tomatoes and cut them into cubes.

I didn’t peel the skin this time, but if you want to peel , soak them in hot water, take them in cold water, and peel off.

For the ground meat, add salt, powder spices (with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves) and roughly entangled.

Heat the spices

Please use a thick pot

Warm the pot, add olive oil and spices (bay leaf, cinnamon stick, cumin seeds, chili) and put it on low heat.

It heats until the cumin seed pops and smells good.

About the pot used

I’m using staub cocotte round 22cm (mint)

Stir-fry onions

Let’s fry the onions until brown.

If the fire is weak, it will take some time, so I’ll make it weak and medium to medium heat.

Also, if you touch it too much, the temperature will drop and it will take time.

Spread it all over and stir-fry it slowly over and over and over again.

When the onion becomes soft, when it becomes clear, add garlic and ginger , and fry it further.

On the way, if it’s about to burn, add water (out of the amount) and remove the stick.


When the onion turns brown, turn off the heat.

Add ground meat, tomatoes and salt, and mix roughly.

Use the moisture of tomatoes to cook anhydrous.

In the case of a pot that can’t be cooked anhydrous, please add about a cup of water.

Cover and put it on fire again.

When the steam rises, put it on very low heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Add pumpkin

In the meantime, cut the pumpkin.

Take the seeds and guts and cut them into easy-to-eat sizes.

I will go back to the pot

It smells good, and it’s OK as long as the tomatoes are boiled and juice-like.

In the case of ground chicken breast, it’s a little easy to burn because it’s less fat.

Add curry powder and powdered cheese and mix.

Add the pumpkin, Sprinkle a pinch of salt

Cover it again and make the fire a little stronger.

Stew the pumpkin for about 10 minutes until it becomes soft.

Open the lid and mix gently.  Let’s taste.

If it’s not enough, add salt and curry powder.

That’s it.

If you put it until the next day, the taste is soaked in the pumpkin

In that case, transfer it to a storage container, wake up completely, and then refrigerate.


This time, I matched it with purple sticky barley rice with skin. Serve keema curry on top of rice and drop the egg yolk.

Chopped parsley, shave the pepper as you like, and it’s done.

It’s a keema curry that is easy for children to eat with well-fried onions, plenty of tomatoes, and light chicken breast.

About the vessel

I’m using an Arabia Paratissi 21cm plate.
