Keema recipes with chicken or mutton:
We usually think of making meat recipes with mutton but one might be surprised to know the various recipes that can be made when meat is minced.
I try to make keema samosas with minced meat, I also try other keema recipes such as keema parathas, keema biryani, keema kofta etc…. apart from only keema fry or keema curry recipes.
If one visits Hyderabad then he/she would be surprised to see the number of restaurants that serve mutton related food and it is a common sight to see them on the road side as well.
Mutton or chicken related stuff sells like hot cakes and I am more than glad to show the world our cuisine which is always in demand even abroad with some of the highly requested recipes such as mutton dum biryani and mutton rogan josh.
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.
Also check out keema made using chicken which is in the name of chicken keema and is mentioned under the category of chicken recipes.
Keema is quite easy to make in a food processor but if we are finding it difficult to make a mince out of mutton then it is better to hand over this task of mincing meat to the nearest butcher available who are experts in mincing the mutton.
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.
This recipe can be tried with chicken keema as well and similar process can be followed to make the keema with boneless chicken as well. These keema recipes can always be made as morning breakfast curries and served with indian flat breads like roti or chapati.
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.
