The three main ingredients in this keema recipe are fresh ground pepper, garlic and coriander leaves. the combination of these three ingredients makes the keema curry recipe delicious.

 

Minced beef, buy or mince it at home?

For this recipe I’m using minced Beef, you can either mince your own or buy it, but if you have a meat grinder or any kitchen appliance that would help you with this chore, I would highly recommend it.

 

I don’t have one so I’m usually at the mercy of the butchers to grind me some meat but sometimes they add so much fat into it that I feel cheated(even my friendly neighbourhood butcher).

 

It’s extra work but if you can, please try to mince your own meat.

 

I don’t have a mincer so this recipe is made out of supermarket grade minced Beef, I’m not happy about it, but for now, it serves the purpose.

My taste adventure with the dreaded Durian.

On a different note which includes how I’m spending time in Thailand and my food adventures, this one includes me with the dreaded fruit well-known for its unpleasant aroma, THE DURIAN.

My mantra was keeping an open mind, I had no choice, it was either throw them away or give it a try. I chose the latter.

 

For the life of me, I can’t figure out how I got stuck with a plateful of Durian pods when I don’t even try these at home.

Maybe I can blame funny man because he thought it was a good idea for me and the terrible four to try since he saw us stuffing ourselves with Mangosteen and rambutan like there was no tomorrow.

 

So a few days later, he brings me this, heavily clingfilm wrapped container, telling us he’ll be out of the country for a few days while unwrapping the box.

No joke but the first thing that hit us was that awful stinky sock.

 

If I had to explain or describe the aroma that completely takes over the area is first Garlic, I mean a very strong smell of garlic with a tinge of rotting Onion and another underlying odour that brings stink socks or ripe old sweaty clothes to mind.

No joke, the first sniff you get of the odor is/was horrible.

Now the next thing I need to clarify is, there is a huge difference between the smell and the taste of the Durian.

This is where everyone including me, imagined that the unpleasant aroma is a clue into the taste of the fruit. 

But the truth is, when I got over the odour of the fruit then the taste was far more delicious than I expected.

 

For my encounter with the fruit, I had a strategy(don’t laugh)was to pinch my nose closed and just concentrate on the taste of the fruit.

My first taste and reaction was to just stop because the smell got to me but gradually you get used to it and then focus on the taste.

keeping it short,

The flavour of the fruit was surprisingly pleasant and I might just might try it again if offered in a very open space, not in an apartment.

The texture is almost custard-like, similar to an overripe, sweet jack fruit yet distinct in its flavor to make it different and a taste experience on its own.

So if you ever have an opportunity to taste a Durian, I say go for it, not once but a few times.

 just make sure to eat in an open space so the strong aroma has time to spread around, try not to think of the odour of the fruit so much, remember, it’s just a fruit that either you’ll want to try again or never try it again.

Was I able to finish the pack of cleaned Durian pods?

Of course, with a bit of hustling, I managed to convince two of my kids to try the fruit, oh the faces they made but thankfully no one gagged, which makes this mama hopeful that they are up to more food adventures in their life.

How to use the curry minced beef.

For me, a good Beef keema curry serves so many purposes, not only is it a skillet meal minus the washing but extras make a great filling to pita bread, grilled sandwiches and a filling for samosas, which is exactly what I do for Ramadan.

 

You’ll love making this Beef keema curry because it’s great to feed a crowd especially when you pour some Coconut milk to the dish. Coconut milk also makes the dish less dry and juicier.

Vegetables I can add to the beef keema curry. 

You can add peas, cashew nuts, cubed potatoes, carrots for more flavour and add variety to the Indian ground beef curry
