Kheema fry

Beef Kheema fry
Kheema or Keema or Qeema is minced meat. I have this strange inhibition... I have tried so many times to buy minced meat from a shop... But something stops me... I always end up mincing it myself...

The picture you see on the right is beef keema fry. I have tried the same recipe with fish and fish roe. Fried keema can be used as a dry side. This also happens to be the step one of many other recipes

Minced meat - One cup
Minced onions - Half cup
Minced garlic - 1 tsp
Minced ginger - 1 tsp
Thinly sliced green chillies - 1-2 tsp
Black pepper powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp

To mince whole meat/fish : 
Cut the meat or fish to small pieces.. To this add water, salt and some pepper and cook well. You could add very less water and dry it up or add more and then use it as stock. When the pieces are cool enough to handle, de-bone them. If it is fish, you will be able to mince with your hand or spoon. For beef or chicken, use a blender.
Be warned: Mincing fish this way is a "smelly" affair.

Heat oil in a pan. Add onions and stir until translucent. Add ginger, garlic, chillies and the meat. Stir well. If the meat is uncooked, close and cook in low flame. Stir occasionally. Add pepper, salt and garam masala... Stir well to mix in... And we are done...
Now snack on this and let loose your imagination... What more can you do with this??

Here's a picture of the fish version. I used mackerel... and to snack on I prefer the fish version :)
