Love this recipe! Easy and quick to make! Made it with turkey mince (because that`s what I had in fridge) and all the family loved it! Making again tonight!

The first and only good food recipe that was a failure for me- tasted and looked like school dinners. Not to be repeated. Sorry good food.

Found this tasteless and bland. in fact probably the worst keema iv made to date.

Fab, we used turkey mince...I would like to say it was because it is low in fat and my body is a temple, but in reality it was what we had in. On perusing the cupboard we were also out of curry powder, so we used Garam Masala....all in all very enjoyable meal :)

I thought this was great for kids - I used mild curry powder and chucked some extra veg in (cabbage and jerusalem artichoke). My kids loved it and I thought it was tasty too. It's definitely more comfort food than gourmet cooking but quick, easy, healthy and more interesting than endless spag bol... I had run out of tomato puree so used ketchup instead and that was fine too.

Nothing special and quite dry so I added some beef stock and peas for extra colour.

Why is the vegetable stock optional?

because you can use either water, or the vegetable stock :)
