Keema Paratha has been one of my favourites for a long time.  I can’t remember when I first had it, but I always get pulled towards it, whenever I see it on the menu. Some of my most visited restaurants make it just perfect and I love to have it with any of the spicy Indian curries. Although I like non-vegetarian food, when I’m out with my vegetarian friends I don’t mind ordering the veg curries to go with my personal Keema Paratha.

If you want to start the day with a filling breakfast, go for it. Or for lunch, dinner, for that matter any time, but not when you look for something too light!

I got some mutton keema over the weekend for some cooking and thought why not also make this paratha at home. I’m just too happy that I did, now that I can satisfy my cravings whenever I want. The keema nicely fits into the paratha giving it a nice flavour with its juices. If you too are looking to have a special meal, why not try this Keema Paratha Recipe to go with your curries. You would love the taste for sure. Enjoy!
