Chicken Keema

A quintessential non veg dish that everyone should and must know in order to grow as a non veg cook, keema.

There are several ways of preparing keema and all are equally good and distinctive in taste. Here is one of the keema recipes..

Chicken keema reminds me of a movie called, "Chicken Khurana" , there was a dialog in the film, where curious Gyaani ji asks the retired chef about the secret behind his famous preparation, which I absolutely loved!

"Bata na Zaalim … kya daalta tha.. tu chicken khurana mein" 

hahaha :)

by the way, do you know what was the secret ingredient?? well I wouldn't kill the suspense for you, watch the film to find out! very interesting I must say.

Lets jump to Chicken Keema now..

250 gms chicken keema
1/2 cup curd
1 onion finely chopped
3 spring onions finely chopped
1 tomato finely chopped
4 green chilly
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
8 garlic pods finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped coriander
1/2 tsp garam masala
[Preferably, Shaan's]
Salt to taste

Heat oil in a kadai. Add onions and fry till transparent, add ginger garlic paste and fry for few seconds. Add spring onions and fry for 3-4 minutes. Add chopped tomatoes and simmer the flame, mix and cover with lid. After tomato is cooked,add the keema and mix well. Sprinkle salt and mix well. Cover the kadai with lid and wait till oil separates. Now add curd and mix well, cover with lid and let it look for 5 minutes.

Before turning off the gas, add garam masala and chopped coriander and mix well. Remember not to cook after adding garam masala, just cover with lid and leave it for another 5 minutes.

 Serve hot with rice/roti.
Another recipe that follows keema is chicken keema paratha
