How to make Chicken Keema

  1. Heat a deep pan or kadhai and add oil. Add the onions and green chillies once the oil is heated up. Saute for 1 to 2 minutes till onions become translucent.
  2. Next, add the ginger garlic paste. Cook it till its raw smell goes off.
  3. Add turmeric powder, cumin powder, chilli powder and the tandoori powder to it. Add a bit of water so that the powder masalas dont get burnt. Cook till oil seems to separate from the masala.
  4. Add chicken keema in the kadhai now. Cook on high flame first for 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Then reduce the flame to medium.
  6. The chicken will cook in its water. No need to add extra water to it.
  7. Now the cover the kadhai and let it cook for 15 minutes. Keep stirring in between.
  8. Add salt according to your taste and cover for another 5 minutes.

  10. Serve hot with roti, naan or pav.

My Tip:

Butter can be used instead of oil. That will give a lovely creamy texture.
