This Keema fry is a fusion of Andhra and Karnataka cuisines.few days back one of my YouTube subscribers asked me to post Mangalorean style chicken ghee roast recipe.that was the first time I heard about the recipe.then I tried the recipe and the taste was outstanding.
I have never heard of using tamarind in non-veg recipes except for fish and crabs until I cooked chicken ghee roast.when it came out really nice then I have decided to prepare mutton in the same way.all the ingredients that i have used are usual Andhra/Telangana style except the tamarind.and i have added dry red chilli paste instead of powder.i made it with minced goat meat/keema.the taste was excellent and this is a must try recipe…. :0)
