Green Kheema Masala/Hara Kheema/Keema Masala

Hara Kheema/Green Kheema/keema masala is one of the most loved dish at my place we love to have this with naan/pav .Green masala adds a very nice flavour to the kheema .To make it more healthy i always add methi or palak/ get lovely green colour plus its always good to add leafy veg in your diet .So i try  my best to include veggies whenever i make non veg.

Serve this with anything with naan/roti/pav it taste best with anything.I have made this with mutton/goat meat mince you can use beef/chicken as well .

i have used light green chillies which are less spicy if using the darker ones use 4 to 5 or as per your spice level tolerance
