Gluten Free Kheema Curry Recipe

Gluten free kheema curry recipe, a delicious Indian curry made with lots of fresh ginger, fresh and ground coriander, turmeric and chilli powder in a tomato sauce.  Traditionally made with mutton, we have used lamb although you can also make it with ground (minced) beef.

This is an easy gluten free recipe.  You need to pay attention at the beginning as you are getting the sauce prepared but once everything is in the pan you just leave it to simmer away.
