Chicken Kheema (Minced Chicken Fry)

Kheema or mince can be prepared using any meat. I tried making kheema using chicken and ever since it has stayed at the top of our favorite dishes. For kids I use a little less of the spices and chilli powder. Kheema prepared using ground turkey follows the same recipe.

Ground chicken - 1 lb
Onion - 1
Green chillies - 2
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
Cloves - 2
Cardamom - 2
Cinnamon - 1-inch stick


1. Wash ground chicken in a colander and drain all the water.
2. Mix chicken with salt, chilli powder, turmeric, ginger-garlic paste and spices - cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, and marinate for 30 min.
3. Take a pan and heat it up with 3 tbsp oil. Add onions and green chillies and fry until onions turn light brown.
4. Add ginger-garlic paste and fry for a couple of minutes. Now add turmeric, ground chicken marinade and let cook with lid on for 15 - 20 min on medium-high heat. Keep stirring at intervals.
5. When all the water from the chicken has evaporated add garam masala and fry for 5 min.
Garnish with coriander and serve!
