Ingredients for Keema Pulav are:
One and half cups Basmati rice, washed and drained, keep in a sieve for 30 minutes
300 grams mince meat (beef or goat meat)
Quarter cup crispy fried onions
1 tablespoon ginger paste
1 tablespoon garlic paste
4-5 green chilies, finely chopped
Handful of finely chopped coriander leaves
Few mint leaves, torn
Few drops of lemon juice
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 black cardamoms
2 green cardamoms
Pinch of grated nutmeg
2 bay leaves
1 small stick of cinnamon
1 teaspoon garam masala powder
1 teaspoon red chili powder
Add the mince meat and sauté for a few minutes, getting a little caramelization on the meat. Add the ginger-garlic paste and red chili powder and mix well. (Photos of this step are missing, the camera ran out of juice and needed recharging!)
Add the rice and fold between the mince meat mixture. Season with salt, garam masala powder and a pinch of nutmeg.
Pour the rice-keema (mince meat) mixture in a microwaveable bowl, add three cups of water, few drops of lemon juice, cover with a cling wrap and cook for 18-20 minutes.
Once the cook time is over, let the Keema Pulav stand for a few minutes before you serve it with a cooling Raita.
P.S. Vegetarians can use minced soy nuggets instead of mince meat/keema.
