Mutton kheema is minced meat cooked with spices perfect to pair up with rice,idli,dosa ,chapathi or paratha. This is my mom recipes, which she used to prepare this kheema. We love to have with white rice, rasam, sambar, roti or chapatti. This kheema curry is very simple and tasty one. Like to share it now. Please do try and let me know how it turns out for you.
