Koila Qeema


Qeema (minced meat)                                            ½ kg
Onions                                                                  2 (medium, thinly sliced)
Tomatoes                                                              4 (blended)
Yogurt                                                                  1 cup
Garlic                                                                   4 cloves (finely chopped)
Cumin Powder                                                      ½ tsp
Salt/ Red Chili/ Black Pepper                                  ½ tsp
Turmeric                                                               ¼ tsp
Coriander Seeds (ground)                                        ½ tsp
Ghee/ Oil                                                              ¼ cup
Lemon Juice                                                          of 2 lemons
Green Chillies                                                        3-4 (sliced)
Coal                                                                      2-3 small pieces


Add oil to a deep pan and fry garlic until golden. Add minced meat, fry for 1 minute, then add the onions. Once the onions turn translucent, add the seasoning (salt, red chili, black pepper, turmeric) - adjust according to taste, mix well and add yogurt. Turn the heat up high until the water content dries up, then add the blended tomatoes. Cook on medium heat until oil starts separating from the meat. Turn down the flame, add the ground cumin and coriander, mix. Push the meat to the side and make a circle in the middle.

Place a piece of bread/old roti or foil in the centre. Light up the coal and once it's heated up properly, place it on the bread/roti/foil and add a few drops of oil on the coal - cover immediately! Let the meat smoke on low heat until the smoke dissipates entirely. Turn off the heat, add green chillies and serve with lemon juice squeezed on top. Garma garam naan, aur khana tayyar.
