Keema Pav

Sunday brunches are scrumptious and a big deal in N and M’s house and Wheniate kitchen. This is the time when we are most mentally free and tend to have time for elaborate cooking. Our mothers have since long served Pav Bhaji on this day and we have always loved it to the core. Just to honor that tradition but also take it one step forward, we created our version of the now getting very famous mince mutton or keema and pavs. It warms up the winter morning!


500 gms of mutton mince

For margination
2 tbs of Yogurt
½ tsp red chilly powder
½ tsp of garam masala
½ tsp of salt
1 tsp of pav bhaji masala

2 onions finely chopped
2 tomatoes finely chopped
½ cup tomato puree
3 cloves
2 Bay leaves
