Chicken Kheema/keema(Mince) Rice

Kheema biryani...I always wondered how to make it. Yesterday I wanted to make one pot dish as I was in no mood to clean the a load of dishes and so made this. S and M loved it .

1 and half cups uncooked basmati rice (wash and soak for atleast 20 mins)
1/4 tsp kala jeera (black cumin)
1/4 tsp fennel seeds
Make a pouch of 2 green cardamom, 1 inch cinnamon, 4-6 cloves, 1/2 star anise
Salt to taste
1tsp oil

Add salt, water, black cumin, fennel seeds, the pouch with whole masala, oil,soaked rice and cook till done.

Minced chicken about 1 lb
1 onion, chopped finely
6 green chillies, slit
2 tomatoes, finley chopped
2 tsps red chilly pwd(adjust to taste)
1tsp jeera ped/cumin pwd
1tsp dhaniya pwd/ corriander pwd
1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1&1/2 tbsps meat masala(I used Badshah meat masala)
1/2 tsp tumeric
2 tbsps of cilantro
2 tbsps of mint
A pinch of sugar
Salt to taste
2-3 tbsps lemon juice
Onion rings for garnish


  • Heat 3 tbsps oil in a wide pan and when hot, add the green chillies and onion and saute till the onion are translucent.
  • Add the ginger-garlic paste and fry till the raw smell disappears. Add the chopped tomatoes and salt and saute for 2-3 mins and add tumeric, red chilly pwd, cumin pwd, corriander pwd, meat masala,sugar and saute till oil separates. 
  • Add the chicken mince and break down and mix well and saute till the chicken is cooked well. 
  • Add the cilantro and mint and switch off the stove and add the cooked rice and mix well , taking care not to break the grain. 
  • Sprinkle the lemon juice, garnish with onion rings and serve with raitha. Enjoy!!!
