Parsi Style Chicken Kheema

Hello friends,

"Kheema" or "kheemo" as they call it in a  Parsi household is a dish loved by all members of the family. No one can refuse a spoonful of this mince served with salli and buttered bread. You can even make a kheema per eendu( egg over the mince). It is generously cooked with spices and tempered on slow till well cooked and tendered.

Parsi style kheema (mince)

 Mutton mince is the best option, but with doctors orders to avoid mutton mince,  I have turned to chicken mince nowadays. It turns out equally delicious and iis perfectly okay if you lick your fingers on the dining table after relishing this. So note down the ingredients and stir up this dish today.


2 onions - chopped
1 tbsp oil
1 green chilly
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
3 tomatoes - chopped
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
250 grams chicken kheema
I potato - cubed
Half cup shelled peas.
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for garnish
Handful of whole spices (peppercorns, cinnamon sticks, cardamom, cloves)


1. Take a deep bottom pressure cooker pan. Add oil and heat.

2. Now add the whole spices and chopped onions.  Sauté for 3-4 minutes till the rawness of onions go away.

3. Now stir in the ginger garlic paste and green chilly

4. Further sauté until the onions become golden.

5. Add the pureed tomatoes and sauté until they soften. The oil will be seen on the sides. This shows that the tomatoes are cooked.

6. Now add the chili powder, masala powder and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

7. Wash the chicken mince well, now tip it in the pressure cooker pan with turmeric and salt.

8. Add the chopped potato and shelled peas.

9. Lower the flame on the stove and cook until the masalas are all mixed well with kheema and vegetables.

10.  Now add a little water, shut the lid and pressure cooker this for one whistle.

11. Lastly, dry the liquid in kheema if any. Add the coriander leaves and stir well.

12.Take off the stove and serve it hot with buttered pavs, salad and  a dash of lime.

I missed to order Salli ( potato sticks ) that day but never forgot to butter my pavs.
