  1. Kheema is very versatile, you can make it with spices of your liking. More tomatoes, no cilantro and so on. Do try Ai.

  2. Looks delicious, Rita! I love kheema! I’ll have to try your recipe, because I’ve ordered it at restaurants but I’ve never made it myself. Thanks for sharing at this week’s Fiesta Friday!
