Keema Pav Recipe: How To Make Keema Pav
Start with preparing the keema, heat oil in a pan, add the whole spices - cinnamon, cardamoms, star anise, bay leaf till fragrant. Sauté them for about a minute or so. (Do not over sauté them).
Add the onions, ginger, garlic and chillies and fry till the onions begin to brown. Now, add the minced meat. Fry continuously for about 6 to 7 mins or till you feel the minced meat is almost cooked (it will change colour and texture).
Once the keema is ready, slice up the pav and warm slightly on a tawa/frying pan. Put in the prepared meat and top with finely sliced onions.
