Here we dont get minced mutton in small quantities. We have to buy minimum of 1 kg & I divide them into 4 quarters & prepare different dishes whole week. Keema vadai is my DH favourite & I like to serve it as starter/ snack / side dish. Best way is to serve it with tomato ketchup. Rich & heavy would be perfect for kids.
