Level up your protein with this absolutely delicious Indian version of ground beef. The spices make the dish just perfection.
I’ve eaten this dish at restaurants several times where you scoop it with a bread (naan or pita), but I eat it “Pump&Crunch-style” over cauliflower rice and/or regular rice.
The flavor is out of this world. Hope you give it a try, SQRLS!
