Keema or Qeema or Kheema (pronounced [ˈqiːmaː]) is a traditional meat dish from the Indian subcontinent. The word may be borrowed from the Greek κιμάς, which means minced meat. It is typically minced mutton curry (lamb or goat) with peas or potatoes. Keema can be made from almost any meat, can be cooked by stewing or frying, and can be formed into kababs. Keema is also sometimes used as a filling for samosas or naan. The word for a similar dish[dubious ] in Armenian is "Gheymah" ղեյմա and in Turkish "kıyma" means minced meat.
