This keema Pattie is very different from the various number of parties I make at home . This recipe is chef Sanjeev kapoor’s which I had taken note of many years ago. I tried the recipe religiously as his in my first attempt. His recipe demanded raw mince to be used and then fried but I didn’t like it much as the mince meat remained a bit raw as the crust of the Pattie was a dipping of egg. The crust got burnt when I tried to cook the Pattie further and when I got the crust golden the mince was raw. So on my next trial I made a few changes to my liking, this time used cooked mince instead. The results were just wow. There after, my take on the recipe remained. I always have my way of changing recipes to my convenience and it always works perfectly. I am sure a lot of you might change this given recipe to your convenience too. Well, that’s how new recipes are born and the world of recipes and cooking keeps us going on and on inspiring us more and more which is more wide and knowledgeable than an ocean.
