Kheema Tikki ~ Mince Patties

14- Kheema TikkiPin


Last week, while I picked up the kids from their babysit aunty’s house and was walking towards our building, Rasha pointed out the recently cordoned section a couple of buildings away and said, “See Ummi, another building is coming up!” I just replied with an hmm. Then the below conversation ensued:

Rasha: “We need to ask abba to book a six bedroom flat in that building!”

Me: “There won’t be six bedroom flats in that building, dear!”

Rasha: (after briefly thinking) “Then abba must take a 6 bedroom villa.”

Me: “But why do we need a six bedroom villa?”

Rasha: “So that I have one room for me, one room for Azza, one room for you and abba, one room for our guests, one room for keeping all your paathrams (cutlery) and having a table so that you can click your pictures silently…”

I was so relieved I had somebody who supports my madness… Hehe… πŸ˜€ Even though the kids are not aware about the blog as such, they do know that I have a little madness of clicking pictures of everything, so before they are served, they give me a questioning looks, which clearly asks, “Ummi, is this done clicking?” πŸ™‚


Adding one more to the list of patties/ cutlets already on the blog… I guess from this you can understand how mad my family is for cutlets. Especially if they are non-veg, I am guaranteed I have none remaining on the plate, making me feel as though my efforts just flew away in seconds! πŸ˜€ The favorite is always chicken, I can’t stress on that fact much! But when I am lazy to cook up chicken, then the best next option is kheema or minced meat. Most of the time, I used chicken mince, but mutton mince tastes much better in these type of patties, I feel. Whatever said and done, these are delicious for tea time or even as a quick dinner served up with salads and wrapped into a chapathi or made into a sandwich with bread! Another thing is that they freeze well – wrap them up in cling film and keep them into a box and when required, drop them into hot oil after thawing for some time. Sounds good, right? πŸ™‚ Off to the recipe…

  4. Having met Rasha and Azza, (btw, do they even remember me?) I can totally imagine her saying all that! πŸ˜› I really wish I was next door would have had them at my place all day! πŸ˜› Tikkis with anything is good snack and so versatile.. but yeah I always prefer the meat ones. Veg tikkis are a lot of work lol! Your pic with the half eaten or cut is making me drool! yummm… btw I have freezed and learnt that it should not be thawed. From feezer to oil has worked best for me.

  7. 6 bedroom with 1 room for your blogger stuff sounds like a great idea raf. Kheema tikki looks really wonderful I can add some soya kheema instead.
