  • 500 gms minced meat/keema/kheema
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 2 onions finely sliced
  • 2 vertically slit green chillies
  • 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
  • salt -to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 3 medium size tomatoes finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garam masala powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper corn powder
  • 1 ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoon fresh coriander leaves/kothmir
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed kasoori methi/dried fenugreek leaves


  • Firstly, wash mutton keema and strain out the excess water from the keema with a strainer.
  • Take a pressure cooker or a cooking vessel.
  • Into it, add oil and heat it.
  • Add sliced onions, green chillies and saute until the onions turn very slight brown color.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and saute to get rid of raw smell.
  • Add mutton keema into it and roast well.
  • Roast it until the keema changes its color and there is no water remaining.
  • Add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, mix it and roast it for few minutes and cook until oil appears at the sides.
  • Add chopped tomatoes, garam masala powder, black pepper powder, mix and cook until the tomatoes turn soft.
  • Add about one and a half cups of water, mix it well.
  • Pressure cook the keema for 3 whistles on sim flame or cook them until it gets tender.
  • Reduce the steam.
  • Add fresh coriander leaves, crushed kasoori methi and mix.
  • Cook for few minutes if there is any water remaining.
  • Switch off the flame.
  • Serve it with roti, rice or paratha!!!


  • Adding of tomatoes is totally optional and can be skipped and yet make a delicious dish...
  • Here, I have made use of chopped tomatoes to make the curry but one can even use beaten yogurt to add into the curry in place of chopped tomatoes as replacing tomatoes with curd too gives a delicious keema gravy that can be served with naan or parathas.
