  1. In a Lagan/Tray, take minced meat (kheema), Yogurt/Curd, Dum ka kheema masala, 4 tablespoons oil left over after frying onions, crushed onions and the green chilly-hara masala paste, mix thoroughly and marinate for at least 2 hours.

This dish can also be baked on a stove but make sure the Lagan/Tray’s bottom is very thick and the minced meat does not stick to the bottom or get burnt. Cover the Lagan/Tray and cook on high flame for about 10 minutes and then on low to medium flame till well cooked, turning the kheema upside down every 15 minutes. If the bottom of the Lagan/Tray is not very thick, use a Wok (Tawa) and place the Lagan/Tray on top of it.
