Keema Macaroni ~ Pasta with Minced Meat

I guess I need not say much about the quote I am sharing with all of you today. I am a person of high expectations – despite trying to develop myself into a better person and having reduced my level of expectation from all around me, I have not reached the level where I would have zero expectation. I guess it is not human to reach that kind of a stage, but still I would love to reach a stage where my expectations are so low that it does not guarantee any heartbreaks if things don’t happen just like how I want it to be. I really don’t know whether I will ever reach that situation but yes, I am trying…

I love anything to do with pasta or macaroni, as they are my go-to on my lazy days. One dish I make quite frequently when I have some mince is this one. Nice and simple, full of flavors… I would add a dollop cheese or mayonnaise to make it more moist and gulp it down!

  • 400 gm macaroni
  • 400 gm chicken/beef mince
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 large onion sliced thinly
  • 1/2 tsp ginger paste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic paste
  • 125 gm pack tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • Salt to taste


  • Cook macaroni till el dente. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a saucepan. Saute the onions till soft.
  • Add the ginger and garlic paste and cook till raw smell goes, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients from tomato paste to salt and cook on low flame for around 10 minutes.
  • Finally add in the mince and continue to cook till the mince is done. Add water little by little to ensure that the mince does not stick to the pan.
  • Once the mince is cooked, add in the drained macaroni and give it a nice mix to ensure the masala covers the macaroni.
  • Keep on low flame with tight lid for around 5 minutes. Switch off and serve warm!
