Palak keema with basmati rice, and a garden salad. I got this Pakistani recipe from my friend Haniyyah. I’ve made this before and I really like it for many reasons. One, it tastes good. Two, it looks gross. And three, it has a lot of spinach in it.


Palak Keema

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/3 cup oil
1 large onion
1 1/2 tsp garlic
1 heaping tsp crushed pepper
1 small can of tomato sauce or a little more
1 tsp salt
2 packs of frozen chopped spinach
1 bunch of cilantro – chopped (optional)
1-2 green peppers
1 tsp minced ginger or 3/4 inch finely chopped
1 tsp gharam masala

Fry onion in 1/3 cup oil until golden….Add ground beef….add garlic, crushed pepper, tomato sauce, and spinich….cook for 1 hour with medium flame.   add cilantro, green peppers, ginger, and gharam masala….let it cook and make it dry….if too dry, add 1/2 cup of water….simmer 15-20 min…..oil should rise to the top.
