Zesty Indian Sloppy Joe Recipe

My daughter LOVES sloppy joes! She requested them again this week and I decided to switch things up a bit with an Indian twist. The fragrant aromas of cumin, coriander and ginger blend with a tomato base to make a zesty taste sensation. I served these on naan bread – but they would also be delightful on soft small buns. You could even serve it over rice!

Zesty Indian Sloppy Joes are a fragrant twist your taste buds will love. Cumin, coriander and ginger create an flavorful combination, serve on naan bread and top with cilantro!
