Minced meat Lavash Roll (Kheema Roll)

Do you know why I love minced meat?! They are so versatile and gets cooked easily. Throw in some simple ingredients and you are good to go. This easy filling which I made is very delicious and can have by its own, or side to any other bread or even rice.

When I asked hubby to get spring roll sheet,he bought a bunch of lavash. I wanna use up those, hence decided to try this way. It didn’t go wrong. light crispy exterior and flavorful and juicy meat paired very well. You can also use your Home made pastry leaves  or Store bought spring roll sheet. Making simple Crepes and fill this minced meat masala would be great idea too. Make a big batch and freeze it…Isn’t that so cool?!

If you are not in a mood to make rolls with minced meat you have in your freezer, why don’t you try Meat balls in white creamy sauce or you want something Indianish?! Here is Kheema Dhal recipe which is very delicious! Lahmajoon would be another best option too!!!

Meat balls in white creamy sauce

Meat balls in white creamy sauce

During early days of my culinary journey, I had a lot of disastrous cooking experiments.I used to make only usual classic Indian dishes in which I was comfortable. The thing is I was least bothered about cooking area till I came to tashkent. When I became the head of home making department, started learning more about cooking.During that time, used to make skype calls back home even for soo basic things and google as well came for my rescue (Still it does). Mom,sis and sis in law guided me and now guess what???I started giving them recipes and tips ;). Haha I really didn’t mean that I became super cook, of course they are more experienced, now I have more ideas about what each elements and measurements makes difference in each dishes & cuisines and easily can twist to family taste and preferences. Now started using new ingredients & tastes which I was not grown up with!!

As someone said experience is the best teacher, my trial and error experiments gave me confidence for trying new new recipes out of my comfort zone. Minced meat is one of my favorite ingredient, I used to make many variety and styles of dishes with this. Meat is hubby’s favorite item too. But he likes our Indianish preferably Kerala dishes always. I used to get bored with same kind of taste and he agreed to have something different from our usual niche once in a week for main meal.

This meat ball with creamy sauce is soo comforting and goes very well with rice , any bread of your choice or mashed potatoes too. Not loaded with sooo much of spices, cute little pan seared balls paired very well with this simple creamy sauce. Very simple recipe, easily available ingredients with three small steps – make meat balls, pan fry it, whip up the sauce and mix the fried meat balls and you are ready to go. We served it with boiled basmathi rice and once had with Multi Layered Indian Flat Bread too.

Hope you will like as much we did, don’t forget to give the feedback.

Lahmacun / Lahmajoon

Lahmajun/ lahmacun (Turkish pizza)

Lahmacun/Lahmajun is a thin round crust topped with spiced minced meat masala and baked to the perfection. This is also known as “Turkish Pizza”. It’s a very popular turkish/Armenian/Middle Eastern dish.

One of our favorite menu item in turkish restaurant here in Tashkent. While ordering food, we never used to think twice to order this exotic dish. I always wanted to put my hands on Lahmacun preparation and book marked this recipe long back.But some how it took this long to come out of my oven.

During Ramadhan we never have food from outside. So when I got minced meat, first thing came to my mind was this  yummyy dish to prepare for Iftar. Once it is in your oven, your house will fill with the irresistible smell of Lahmacun and will vanish from your table when served hot. Addition of parsley leaves are very important and it gives this dish a distinct aroma and taste.

Lahmacun is always our favorite and hope you will also start enjoying it as much as we do.

Kheema Dhal (Minced Meat with Lentil – Indian Style)

Kheema Dhal (Minced Meat with Lentil - Indian Style)

Kheema with Dhal(Lentil) is a beautiful combination goes very well with roti,chapathi, rice, Layered Paratha,any bread, Unsweetened Kalathappam(Rice cake) etc.I made it with Indian masala and this is little more on spicier side. You can use any dhal(lentil) and I used Chana Dhal (Splitted chick pea). I also  tried with Masoor Dhal (Red lentil) and both came out well.

I wasn’t aware of this tasty dish before. Once my hubby brought Kheema(minced meat) and asked me to make kheema dhal. When he was in college hostel, they used to cook food by themself. So his north India friends used to make this Kheema Dhal occasionally. Thats how I started making this and added to our menu.

I made it my own way and it came out well. Tried second time with some more fine tuning and here it is for you.

Kheema/Minced meat Biriyani (Kannur style)

Kheema/Minced meat Biriyani (Kannur style biriyani)

Biriyani is the most famous festive dish in India, especially amongst muslim society. And biriyani varies in its tasts, texture and the method of cooking from region to region. Malabar style biriyani is one of the famous biriyani and its taste and method also differ slightly from different disctricts of malabar. Its a most aromatic rice with juicy and tendary meat or fish. And some makes it even with vegetables also.

Biriyani is the main dish in Kerala muslim wedding.Traditionally it used to be served with Alsa/Alisa(wheat is cooked with meat and spices) and accompanied by chicken/beef fry and some pickles and raitas.But now a days for wedding back home, you can’t count the number of dishes served. We will feel full after seeing all those mouth watering menu. Even then there is no game without biriyani . Biyani is the king and Alisa is the queen of all festive menu back home.

I must say, in our place people celebrate with food on wedding….all kinds of starters, main meal and desserts.When we go home for vacation, we will be surprised to see many innovative dishes with the base as authentic malabar taste especially snacks. People are getting more creative now a days 😉

Biriyani is one of my favorite dish. As I told, its taste differ from region to region, I love the way my mom and sis makes. Even my hubby’s place biriyani taste little different…but my mom’s is the best ;)….

I still remember the day I prepared my 1st biriyani after coming here in Tashkent. It was on a Eid day.Even though I know all the steps and process, I never made it all alone before. On that day I thought I made good biriyani ;)…… but now I realised it wasn’t…. practice makes everything perfect right?! After so much of trial and fine tuning….my biriyani came to perfection :)…. Today I made kheema(ground meat) biriyani, which is prepared our own kannur style. Rarely we make biriyani with kheema, but it taste lovely.

We make biriyani by putting on Dum with layers of ghee rice and meat masala. Lets see how its made…..
