KEEMA PAKORAS ( Mince Meat Fritters)

Pakoras are relished by one and all specially on a rainy day. Have you ever tried making them with mince meat ? If not you must give it a try. I have used chicken keema in this recipe.. you may use mutton keema or minced beef also. Vegetarians can replace it with soya granules. We can make use of the left over keema also. Take care while mixing the batter and add the water according to the consistency of keema.

For chicken keema:

Onions ...... 1 chopped finely
Chicken mince .. 100 - 150 grams
Turmeric powder ... 1/8 tsp
Cumin powder ...... 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder .. 1/4 tsp
Ginger garlic paste ... 1 tsp each
Red chilli powder ..... 1/2 tsp
Garam masala ....... 1/2 tsp
Salt ... to taste
Oil ..... 2 -3 tbsps
Heat oil in a pan and stir fry the onion, ginger, garlic. Add the chicken mince and saute until it changes colour. Add all the spice powders and salt. Set it aside to cool.

For the Pakoras:
Besan / gram flour ... 1 cup
Keema ................ 1/2 cup
Onions ............. 1/4 cup (finely chopped)
Green chillies .... 2-3 (finely chopped)
Coriander leaves .. handful (chopped)
Mint leaves ......... few (chopped)
Baking soda ....... 2 pinches
Cumin seeds ...... 1 tsp
Red chilli powder .. 1/2 tsp (as per your taste)
Salt ................. to taste
Oil .............. to fry

1. Mix all the ingredients together (except oil) adding a little water to make a thick batter.

2. Heat oil in a kadai / frying pan.

3. Drop small quantities of batter and deep fry until crisp and golden brown.
3. Serve with chutney or sauce.
