Ground Beef (Keema) w/peas wrapped in a delicious flaky crust
I love this versatile spice mix, it's mild and bursting with flavor so you can do SO much with the yummy leftovers, after all the spice mix is good for 2 1/2 lbs of ground beef. You can also use the spice mix with ground turkey or lamb too. So instead of serving it with rice or Indian flat bread like naan, I decided to make an easy fusion Indian appetizer by baking it with Pillsbury dough crescent rolls. The house smelt heavenly with aromas of freshly baked dough and my ground beef dish. Best of all, my family just loved it! There were NO leftovers.
Here is the recipe for baking with crescent rolls. It makes 4 large beef turnovers.
Pillsbury dough crescent roll tube: 1
Previously prepared Ground beef (Keema) w/peas
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
1. Unroll the pillsbury crescent roll without breaking raw dough at the triangular
2. Break apart rolled out dough into 4 rectangles at perforations i.e. keep
perforated 2 triangles together.
3. Fill each of the 4 rectangles with ~3-4 tablespoons or more of prepared ground
beef w/peas and pull 1 triangle with another. Cover perforations at the corner
by pinching dough over the area and pinch together edges to seal ground beef
into the dough.
4. Cover baking tray with aluminum foil, spray with oil and place prepared
turnovers in pre-heated oven for 20-25 mins.
5. Serve with buffalo wing hot sauce or a mild sauce if desired.
Enjoy this mouthwatering appetizer!
