Finally, I am cooking kheema after a year. Got some minced meat from the shop and I planned of making aloo kheema masala and post it in the blog. I made it for lunch along with ghee rice. It also goes well with roti, naan or chapati or dosa. Potatoes added to mutton chicken or egg dishes are so tasty to eat. So I love them to add in such dishes.
You can also make this kheema along with khichdi and khatta. I will try to post the recipe of khichdi khatta kheema later. I love that combo. I have tried it in my friends home as well is in the Hyderabadi restaurant. Cooking kheema will not take a long time like mutton. So newbies can try recipes with minced meat.
