Home made kheema paratha recipe.

Ingredients

  • For the minced mutton
  • Oil 1 tbsp

  • Minced mutton 1/2 kg (washed and cleaned)

  • Ginger & garlic paste 1tsp

  • Red chili powder 1tsp

  • Salt to taste

  • Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp

  • Coriander powder 1tsp

  • Garam masala powder 1/2 tsp

  • Chat masala 1tsp

  • Mint and Coriander leaves 1/2 cup

  • Lime juice 1 tsp

  • For the dough
  • Wheat flour 2 cups

  • Maida 2 cups

  • Salt to taste

  • Ghee 1 tsp

  • Water as required to knead the doe.

Directions

  • Knead the dough by adding the wheat flour and maida by adding little bit of water at a time and add in ghee and salt to taste. Knead it into a soft and smooth dough.
  • Place the dough in a bowl and cover it with a clean and damp cloth and set aside for at least one hour.
  • On the other hand, wash the minced mutton and drain the excess water. Take a pan and grease it with oil. Add the minced mutton along with the other powder ingredients and ginger & garlic paste. Add salt to taste.
  • Mix it well. Cover the pan with a lid let it cook on a medium flame for 5 mins. Now add the lime juice and the chopped mint and coriander leaves in it.
  • Let it cook again for 2-5 mins on a high flame until the mixture is dry enough to fill in the parathas.
    Let this mixture cool down for a while.
  • Divide the dough into equally sized balls and lightly flour a clean surface and roll each ball into a circle of about 3 inches in diameter.
  • Place 1-2 tablespoons of mutton filling in the centre of the dough and fold the edges over it to cover the filling completely. Gently press to seal it.
  • Now roll this dough again into a size of a chapati or about 7-8 inches in diameter.
    You can roll all the parathas similarly and stack them with a layer of cling film between them so they are ready to cook.
  • Fry one paratha at a time.
    Heat a griddle and place one paratha on it.
  • Flip the paratha when the tiny bubbles start to rise on its surface and add 1 or 2 teaspoons of ghee/oil on it. Spread it all over the surface.
  • Fry it for 20-30 secs and then flip it again. Drizzle the ghee/oil on this side as well if you like more of it.
  • Flip the paratha once again to fry the other side properly.
  • The paratha is done when both the sides are nicely crisp and golden brown.
    Continue these steps for all the other parathas.
    Serve hot.

Optional

  • You can add some grated cheese on the paratha.
