I guess my blog baby is really getting treated good with all the new blog posts nowadays. There had been a time when this little space of mine was totally ignored to the core other than a few peeks here and there. I felt bad , my little princess had to be given more attention those days.
Its not that she needs less attention nowadays but, its kind of hard to juggle with a super duper hyper kiddo at home, she at times does run away or just play with the props set for a picture for my blog, and it really gets hard.... but i do enjoy being a mother to the fullest. She'll be the happiest one if i give some for taste testing :)
I had been thinking of trying this curry out like for ages, saw the recipe in the famous, our very own magazine Vanitha, i had the recipe cut out and saved. Frankly, while making this i wasn't so sure how the gravy would be , but trust me people it was truly awesome, people... you would love it. It would taste best with Kallappam / Appam - No Coconut / Palada

2 Onions ( Chopped fine )
1 inch Ginger ( chopped )
2 Green Chilies ( slit in half ) ( adjust )

Bowl 1 : Grind Ginger + Chili together , mix it well with minced meat + chopped onion & salt.

Bowl 2 : Grind all the ingredients under Bowl 2 and set aside until used.
Heat oil in a Kadai, add Onion + Ginger + Green Chili & Curry Leaves, until the onions turn very soft, mushy and translucent.

Add in the keema balls and let it cook, DO NOT stir at this point, you may break the balls.
When the balls are all cooked; add in potatoes + thick coconut milk, curry leaves , if you feel your gravy to be too thick and less in quantity you can add 1/2 - 1 cup water if needed, check for salt.
