Kheema Masala

One of my favorite items lately is kheema masala. These days I am craving for something spicy and something which can be done in a jiffy. Even thinking about this is making me hungry right now. I picked this up from my mom.

Ingredients:
Kheema: 500 grams from chicken or mutton (I used chicken)
Onion: 1 big, chopped
Tomato: 1 big, chopped
Green Chili: 3, chopped
Cilantro/Coriander: hanful
Ginger& garlic paste: 1 tbsp
Oil: 2 tbsp

Masala:
Coriander powder: 1 tsp
Cumin powder: 1/2 tsp
Garam masala: 1 tsp
Salt: according to taste
Red chili powder: 1 tsp

Method:
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped onions and green chilies. Fry until translucent. 
  • Now add the ginger & garlic paste and fry for a min. 
  • Now add the kheema and chopped tomato and keep cooking until everything is cooked. Here, you can also add half a cup of water if you want the kheema to be a little gray type. 
  • Once kheema is cooked add everything under 'Masala'. 
  • Check for salt, add coriander leaves and switch off the stove. 
Notes:
1. You can also add potatoes or green peas while cooking the kheema. This will increase the quantity of the kheema if you have some unexpected guests.

Serving Suggestions:
This goes very well with naan or even rice.
