CHICKEN KHEEMA AND CHICKEN SAMOSA

Chicken kheema is my recent chicken dish that I tryed for the first time and believe me it was super hit recipe. Kheema can be prepared with any meat you prefer. This goes well with parathas.The best advantage is that left over kheema can be transformed into hot samosa the very next day. Samosa are meant to be Indian famous snacks and can be had anytime and any season. For the Veggie people out there can use soya granules instead of meat.

INGREDIENTS FOR CHICKEN KHEEMA.
1/2 pound Grounded or minced chicken.
1 Onion.

1 tbs Chopped Ginger

1 tbs Chopped Garlic.

1 tsp Jeera.

1 tbsp Red chilli powder.

2 tbsp Coriander powder.

1 tsp Turmeric powder.

1 tbsp Garam masala powder.

1 tsp Cumin powder.

1 tbsp Oil.

Salt to taste.

GARNISH.

Chopped Spring onions.


METHOD.

Heat oil in a pan. Add jeera, ginger, garlic and onions. Fry them till onion turns translucent.

Add all the remaining spice with salt and stir well.

Add grounded chicken and stir fry till the meat turns brown. Cover for 10 min and let it cook till all water is absorbed.

Later its done, garnish with chopped spring onions.

INGREDIENTS FOR SAMOSA CRUST.

1/2 cup Maida.

2 tbs Ghee or Oil.

Salt to taste.

Water as per required.

Oil for deep fry.

METHOD.

Mix the flour with the ghee and salt to taste. Add a little water at a time to it, kneading into soft pliable dough.. Divide the dough inot small balls. Roll each ball into a circle and cut into 2 halves with a sharp knife. Take one semi-circle and lightly wet its straight edge with water. Fold it into a cone and join the edges pressing gently.

Fill each cones with chicken kheema and again join those open edges with water pressing gently. Reapeat the same process for the rest.


Deep fry the samosa till golden brown. Drain on kitchen tissue.

Serve hot with ketchup.
