Hi Sagari,
It's been a while since I visited here. Gosh! I've missed so many of your wonderful posts.Chicken Keema looks absolutely delicious. It's been ages since I made this. I call this as chicken kofta. Thanks for sharing this. I'll surely try this.

I should use this technique to make veggie koftas since most methods involve deepfrying them.
