Chicken Keema (Indian Mince Chicken) – Recipes Plaza

Chicken Keema is a quick and easy Indian-style chicken mince recipe. Chicken Keema is a hot and spicy Indian curry made using minced chicken, onions, tomatoes, and spices. This one-pot dish is super easy to make and comes together in under 30 minutes.

This keema is nothing but the minced form of boneless chicken and it is not made often as most people prefer to use mutton keema rather than chicken ka keema. This is a perfect side dish for many of the main course recipes and it takes less time to cook compared to mutton as well.

We often think of only mutton keema whenever we think of the keema recipe but not many know that chicken keema is also used. The chicken is added to the prepared spice masala and then cooked for about 8-10 mins.

Serving Suggestions

Chicken Keema Masala can be served with any Indian bread. Plain Roti, Tawa Paratha, Naan, Garlic Naan, Rumali Roti, or even Laccha Paratha goes well with it.

You can also serve it with Pav or Bread. Keema Pav is a very popular combination. Dal Rice and Keema is also a favorite combination of mine and believe me, is a very satisfying meal. Make sure to serve some onion slices and lemon wedges along with it for a delicious meal.
