ALOO KEEMA

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the humble aloo keema, the king of comfort food, made by brown moms all over the world. Aloo keema is a traditional Pakistani / North Indian dish, eaten with rice, roti or parathas. You can call it a one-pot Ground beef potato curry. Quickest meal to whip up and remarkably hard to mess up! Lets begin!

WHAT IS ALOO KEEMA

Aloo keema or Qeema is a traditional home style Pakistani / North Indian dish made with curried potatoes (aloo) and ground meat(keema). Typically, its made with beef in most Pakistani houses, and its one of those weekly rotation kinda recipes. And I know I am not exxagerating here when I say, that all Pakistani folks have grown up eating aloo keema.

And since it’s such a household name for us, we also have our preferences of how we like our aloo keema. My family enjoys a saucier version, while some prefer a drier stir fry consistency. Some are adamant that its only eaten with roti, and others have it with lentils and rice. And don’t get me started on the whole “Is it Aloo keema or Keema Aloo” debate. The only thing we all can agree on, it that its delicious. Its not snazyy or trendy, but it is what the heart wants after a long tiring day. After so much that is dissapointing in life, Aloo keema never dissapoints. (that was deeeep)
