Beef Keema

Prep time 6 mins
Cook time 18 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup beef mixture, 1 pita wedge, and 1 lime wedge)
Keema is an Indian-style ground meat dish made with either lamb or beef. The spiced beef mixture is thick and chili-like and is traditionally served with an Indian flatbread called naan. We've used store-bought pita bread as an easy-to-find alternative.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion (about 3/4 small)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup chopped plum tomato (2 medium)
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 3 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 (6-inch) whole wheat pita, cut into fourths
