Keema (Minced Meat) 

Keema is a traditional South Asian meat dish. The word is borrowed probably from Greek and meant minced meat. It is typically minced mutton curry with peas or potatoes. Keema can be made from almost any meat, can be cooked by stewing or frying, and can be formed into kababs. Keema is also sometimes used as a filling for samosas or naan.
