Hyderabadi Keema

In this delicious Hyderabadi keema preparation – mutton mince is cooked along with a variety of whole and dried spices and topped with a boiled egg just before serving. Sometimes a few green peas are added for more texture, taste and colour. It tastes delicious with just about any Indian bread, but my favourite is pav. I can easily polish off a plate of keema pav at any given date and time.
