Kheema ~ Fried Ground Beef
This dish originated in India but has become very popular in
the UAE. When the early traders arrived from India they would
cook kheema and paratha on their boats. The local people soon
developed a taste for this typical Indian dish and before long it
was adopted as part of the cuisine.
