Spicy Kheema

Spicy kheema, a dish loved by most non veggies and its yummy with parathas.
I decided to post the recipe of kheema as my first blog post; as its easy and loved everyone.

  • 1 LB Kheema ( minced meat , it can be beef or lamb)
  • 2-tbsp of oil
  • 1 big onion
  • 2 big chopped tomatoes
  • 1 big potato(cut into cubes)
  • half a cup green peas(optional)
  • 1 tsp ginger n garlic paste
  • 2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala powder
  • salt to taste
  • fresh mint leaves
  • fresh cilantro
  • few green chilles
we need to wash kheema thoroughly for the smell and excess fat to go. The best way to wash kheema is to add cut onions in the vessel with kheema and water while washing. if u r very particular abt the smell a drop or two of lemon juice added to the kheema will also do good.Keep the washed kheema in a sieve, so all the water is drained.

Take oil in vessel add chopped onions, one chopped green chilli and saute it for a few minutes. Add all the ingredients except the mint, cilantro and kheema. Saute these well, cover the lid for a few minutes and let all the ingredients mix well , then add kheema add half cup of water,cover the lid and let it cook for some more time. Then add fresh cilantro, mint leaves and a chopped green chilly and let it simmer for some more time, cook till all the water has dried.

Garnish with mint leaves, cilantro and serve with hot parathas. I am sure it would be loved by
