Kheema Naan

Kheema Naan

I’m here with a grease free recipe!I noticed it’s long time I’ve been shared a baked goodness!So here comes the delicious Kheema Naan prepares in no time.Soft naans stuffed with scrumptious Kheema masala and cooked to perfection.

Here i used mutton mince and all the cooking process is done in an oven.We need to just mix everything thoroughly with our clean hands stuff it and bake it.I always doubt that meat cooks or not if directly put it in the oven without cooking,and i’m pretty sure many of you have the same doubts too.Usually we used to cook our meat for more than 15 to 20 minutes.So here too we are baking it for 20 to 25 minutes,that means your meat will cook through for sure.I want to clear that doubt first so no worries the meat will be done completely.


A comfort food that makes your tummy happy with soul satisfying flavors!The combo with this kheema naan is a very simple coriander mint raita.Here we all loved it,I made some small naans to have while breaking fast ☺So if you want to make it in smaller size go for it.
