Mutton Keema Recipe is a gravy curry recipe made with minced meat or it is usually called as mutton kheema or mutton keema. It is a super delicious recipe often made.

             Other recipes too can be made with keema such as mutton kofte and nargisi kofta.

When the meat is minced or made into a keema, it should be minced thickly and not machine minced. Thickly minced meat tastes the best.


Mutton kheema or mutton keema tastes best along with hot rotis or parathas. But, the mutton keema made here can be eaten with steamed rice, khatti dal and mutton kheema as an accompaniment or a side dish.

           There are few recipes that taste best when made with keema of mutton such as mutton kofta, shimla mirch keema etc…

This is a common hyderabadi keema curry but made with different variations and in hyderabad keema is usually eaten along with moong dal khichdi as a breakfast recipe.


There are many more recipes to be made with keema and I shall update them as I continue writing recipes for my blog.

This keema curry is made using chopped onions and chopped tomatoes and also added into them are few spices which are available handy at home. The keema curry is pressure cooked which could make our work easy.

The minced meat or keema chosen from fresh red meat tastes good and therefore, chosing a good quality keema is very necessary.


Keema curry tastes as good as keema paratha and keema balls. I have also added very few methi/fenugreek leaves into the recipe and it is totally optional but I suggest few leaves to be added to get a very yummy flavor from those fresh leaves.
