Chicken Keema Masala Recipe

chicken-keema-matarChicken Keema Masala is a simple dry sabzi loved by most non-vegeterian Indian households, easy to prepare and can be a party menu item as well. Keema or minced meat is easily available of the shelf these days, and can be used as a side, in samosas, in sandwiches, or made into keema koftas to go into a succulent curry. 

If you have been a regular visitor here, you would know that ours is a household of a vegetarian married to a hard core meat eater, so i have had the opportunity to learn wonderful curries and sabzis in the course of this marriage and now i am myself hooked to non vegetarian cooking. Just another boneless variant of chicken, was one of the first things i got comfortable with cooking. 

Chicken Keema Masala is a goto recipe in our kitchen on the days when hardly any vegetables are left in the refrigerator and we still want to have something good, that can be made in a jiffy, coz on the days when your pantry is not well stocked, it means you are also running short on time. 

Try this keema as a side, or make samosas with this as a filling and have people praising you for all the hard work, even tough this is one of the easiest things to stir up.
