“It's not Keema, but it's inspired by. I wanted something quick because it was late, but this took me nearly an hour anyway because of the chopping. I'm a slow chopper. It would be good with brown rice, but I thought I didn't have time to cook rice so we just mashed our potatoes in our bowl and stirred it all together and it was delicious like that. Some might like to add pepper sauce to theirs.”
8 1.5 cup servings
