Kheema Pav

Like any other street food of Mumbai, like Misal Pav, Vada Pav, Bhurji Pav, Pav Bhaji….."KHEEMA PAV" is also very famous among non vegetarian people. Kheema means minced chicken or mutton. This is very spicy and tasty. You can make dry kheema or with some gravy. Kheema Pav is a one of the favorite dish of my Husband. He likes it with toasted pav with butter. So for the Valentine day Kheema Pav, specially for him…..


Minced Mutton/ chicken - 250 Grams.

Green cardamoms - 2-3

Black cardamom - 1

Cloves - 2-3

Cinnamon stick - 1 inch

Shahijeere - 1/2 teaspoon

Tejpan - 1

Chopped onion - 2 medium

Chopped tomatoes - 1 medium

Garlic paste - 1 teaspoon

Ginger paste - 1 teaspoon

Garam Masala - 1 teaspoon

Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon

Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon

Red chilli powder - 1, 1/2 teaspoon

Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon

Oil - 2 tablespoon

Chopped coriander for garnishing

Pav - nos.

Butter - 2 tablespoon

Salt to taste


Heat oil in a pressure cooker (I have a handi cooker). Add shahijeere, black and green cardamom, cloves, tejpan and cinnamon sticks. Then add chopped onions and saute it till onions becomes transparent. Add turmeric powder. Then chopped tomatoes. Saute it till it cooked properly and get mashed. Now add ginger and garlic paste, Garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder and mix it. Now add minced mutton (or chicken) and mix in such a way that all the masala get coated to it. Add salt. Then add 1 cup of water and cover with lid and cook it for 2-3 whistle. When pressure drops, remove the lid. If you want dry kheema you can fry it in pan to evaporate excess water from it. Garnish it with chopped coriander. Heat butter on tawa. Slice pav horizontally and fry in butter from both the side till pav becomes crisp. Serve kheema with this crisp Pav.
