Aaloo Qeema Recipe (Minced Meat and Potatoes)

Minced Meat

The minced meat used here is finely chopped beef . Generally a machine is used to make minced meat and it helps make the beef in beautifully cut small pieces. It can be done by hand as well but it takes a lot of time to cut the beef in small pieces.  Minced meat is a favorite of both children and elders. It is used in different dishes and is cooked in different ways. The recipe I am sharing here is a very common one and is made in every house.


  • ½ Kg minced meat
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 2 medium sized onion, finely chopped
