  • For Keema:
    • 2 pcs Chicken Boneless Breast (approximately 500 grams)
    • 1 medium Onion, chopped
    • A handful of fresh Coriander, chopped
    • A pinch of Salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
    • 3/4 teaspoon Garam Masala
  • For Cooking:
    • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
    • 1 tablespoon Ginger Garlic Paste
    • 1 tablespoon Fried Onion Paste
    • 2 spoons full of chopped Onions, Coriander and Chillies
    • 1 medium Tomato, chopped
    • Salt to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon Red Chilli Powder (adjust according to spice preference)
    • 1/4 teaspoon Chaat Masala


  1. Prepare the Keema: Start by grinding the chicken breast along with chopped onions, coriander, a pinch of salt, black pepper, and garam masala until well mixed. Your homemade, healthy keema is ready!
  2. Cook the Masala: Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add ginger garlic paste, sauté for a minute until fragrant. Add the chopped onion mix. Stir in the fried onion paste and chopped tomatoes. Season with salt, red chilli powder, garam masala, and chaat masala. Cook until the masala thickens and oil begins to separate at the sides.
  3. Bring It All Together: Add the prepared keema to the pan. Cook for a minute before adding 1/2 cup water. Cover and let it simmer on low heat until the keema is well-cooked and almost dry. This should take about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Serving Suggestions: Serve this mouth-watering keema with your choice of dosa, pav, or chapati. It’s a versatile dish that pairs wonderfully with various sides, making it a perfect addition to your healthy eating challenge.
