Keema Curry

March 9, 2015
Recipe by: Swiss Diamond Japan

When you say "curry" around here, people automatically think you are speaking of Indian food. If this is the first thing that comes to your mind as well, I am here to tell you that not only Indian dishes contain curry. While you may think that curry is a powder or a paste, curry is actually a type of dish that incorporates a complex combination of spices or herbs, usually including fresh or dried hot chilies. Curry dishes can be wet or dry in traditional cuisines and the exact selection of spices is dependent on the regional tradition. 

This recipe comes to us from our Japanese headquarters. Their chef is well-versed in traditional Japanese cuisine and has recommended this Keema Curry dish to all Swiss Diamond recipe readers. Contrary to popular belief, not every curry requires long, slow simmering. This simple curry incorporates fresh vegetables and protein and is sure to be one of your go-to meals; if you want extra heat, choose a medium or hot curry roux. You'll want to serve this one to your friends and family, but do not tell them how easy it is to prepare or you'll be cooking it all the time!
