Cauliflower & Paneer Keema Pav

Keema is traditional South-Asian dish made with ground lamb. Every household has their own version of it. You can make Keema using any type of finely minced meat, eggs or veggie. Here is my easy peezy version made out of Riced Cauliflower & shredded Paneer. My favorite way to eat Keema is with toasted Croissant.

Using @birdseyevegetables steam fresh Riced cauliflower bag makes the cooking process faster; it comes together in less than 20 minute. Quick and easy weeknight meal.
