Kheema Ball Curry / MeatBall Curry

Kheema ball curry is a classic Indian food. Kheema nothing but minced meat. This meat ball curry is quite different from regular meat balls, as many spices are included to the meat balls.

During winter season especially  when hyacinth bean/surti papdi is available in the market this kheema curry is a must at my house. As everyone loves this kheema curry with Hitkidda Avarekallu/ de skinned Hyacinth Bean/Surti Papdi. Hitkidda Avarekallu means hyacinth bean is soaked in water overnight and following day its pressed in hand to de-skin the Avarekallu/Hyacinth Bean/Surti papdi.So i’m presenting you with this special Hitkidda Avarekallu Kheema ball curry,if you don’t want to use Hyacinth bean then also its fine.You can still get the good,spicy and flavorful  taste of Kheema.

Mouth watering delicious Kheema Curry will be ready. Serve with Raggi Balls,steamed Rice.


My Notes:

  • Use only hot water,using cold water may break the kheema balls.
  • Once you add masala don’t  stir using the ladle,just lift the pressure cooker and slowly shake it.If you use ladle to mix  masala then it might break the balls.
  • If you reduce the water content then you can also use it as Kheema gravy.
