Kheema Masala /Kheema Matar or Mince Masala is a simple mince preparation yet taste delicious..Kheema with Pav goes very well .There are various ways in which Keema Matar/Kheema Masala is prepared . The one served on the streets of Mumbai is a dry dish mainly made on Tawa .Some like it very dry whereas some like oil floating on it. We normally prepare it with potatoes and green peas either in red masala or green masala.

It can be made with any mince you prefer. The preparation is quite basic but the taste is delectable.Have it with Pav/Bread or Naan or Khubus .It goes very well with anything.
