Aloo Kheema Masala

Aloo Kheema Masala

This kheema masala is a perfect balance of flavors with all the spices well paired with kheema and potato! Spicy, tangy and delicious Dabewali Kheema that goes well with chapathi puri or even with buttery pav!I’m so happy with this perfect recipe to share with you guys!

It is said that kheema should not be washed as it loses its texture and flavor! I used chicken mince here, but if you have lamb mince it will be yummier! If you are using lamb it should be cooked longer. If you have leftover masala simmer it and use as sandwich filling or make roll out of it! 

As it is spicy and masaledar my hubby enjoyed it! I paired it with chapati and it was yummilicious! If you are searching for a perfect kheema recipe here you go! Some people had requested me for this recipe and I’m dedicating this keema masala for them. If you like green peas you can add that too. Also, u can skip veggies and stick onto keema, it’s up to u.
