Kheema Sandwich

You can hardly call this a recipe since it more of a brunch or lunch idea that I often resort to especially during summers since its simple, quick and easy. Sometimes I use left overs of vegetable stir fries (especially okra or eggplant) as sandwich fillings and today, I wanted to finish the left over mutton kheema and what best way than make a sandwich with minimum preparation work. Absolutely impressive in taste, this simple comfort food certainly made my day.:) Its quite filling and best suited for brunch or lunch. Try it and you will be receiving accolades from those who have a bite of this kheema sandwich.

Mutton Kheema Sandwich

For Mutton Kheema:

Heat one and half tbsps of oil in a pressure cooker. Add half a cup of chopped onions and saute till transparent. Add a tsp of ginger garlic paste and saute further for another 3 mts. Add 1/4 kg washed kheema and cook for 7-8 mts on high heat, stir once in while. Add 1 tsp red chilli pwd, 1 tsp coriander pwd, 1/4 tsp garam masala pwd and salt to taste. Combine well. Add half a cup of water and pressure cook till the kheema is completely cooked and soft. This could take about 15-20 mts. Turn off heat. Kheema is supposed to be semi dry, and can be cooked further without lid till there is no water content.
To assemble the sandwich:
Toasted bread, slices of onion, tomato, cucumber, capsicum and kheema. Pretty simple affair, just layer toasted bread with slices of tomatoes, onions and cucumber, a generous amount of the kheema, layer of capsicum rings and finally top with toasted bread and your meal is ready. I used white bread though both brown and ragi bread work fine.

    oh, great idea! but instead of going for bread, we can make franky, even for a change.

  • Gauri

    this tastes awesome, I have tried it with the keema that ma prepares.. on the same lines, can try the same trick with rajma also. A generous dash of ketchup works well on the rajma sandwich..
