How to make Keema Stuffed Pineapple Croquette

  1. Lightly grease a grill pan with butter and gently grill both sides of the rings of pineapple and keep aside.
  2. Clean and wash the chicken mince.
  3. Heat oil in a wok. Add bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, cumin seeds, whole black cardamoms and chopped green chillies and saute on a low flame for a minute
  4. When they start to sizzle in oil add chopped ginger and garlic pan and cook for a few seconds.
  5. Add thinly sliced onions and fry until the oil separates.
  6. Now add homemade tomato puree to the pan..
  7. Add turmeric powder, paprika /red chilli powder, coriander powder and garam masala and give it a good stir.
  8. Add salt to taste. Remove the whole garam masala (bay leaf, cinnamon and cardamom) with a spoon.
  9. Now add the minced chicken along with a dollop of butter and keep stirring continuously.
  10. Cover and cook on low flame for 20 minutes or until the liquid that was released after adding the minced chicken dries up imparting a rich colour to the dish.
  11. Add chopped cashewnuts and chopped coriander and cook for a few minutes before turning off the hob.
  12. Transfer the Keema masala to a bowl, add the boiled potato and grated cheese and mash it into a tight dough.
  13. Stuff and coat the ring of pineapple with this prepared mixture
  14. Beat egg in a bowl and season it with salt and pepper.
  15. Dip the pineapple ring in the egg and coat evenly with breadcrumbs
  16. Deep fry on medium flame till the croquette takes up a golden brown colour.
  17. Top it with grated cheese and bake in the oven at 180 degrees C till the cheese melts.
  18. Serve hot with fresh greens and enjoy with your favourite sauce.

My Tip:

Add various dry fruits of your choice for that extra zing. You can replace the chicken mince with mutton mince or paneer mince.
