Instant Pot Kheema (Minced Meat)

Kheema is minced or ground meat-it can be beef, lamb, chicken or turkey. Kheema is one of the most versatile meats. Kheema is used in every cuisine and across the world.

I use this recipe for several kheema dishes (listed below) but I have like a million different versions of kheema recipes!

This recipe is pretty easy so instead of giving a more detailed recipe, I’ll give you guys some tips on making kheema and ideas on how to use it!

Tips on making Kheema

  • This tip is for any Instant Pot recipe: make sure that your IP says HOT before you add any ingredients. This will keep your food from burning.
  • Adding one or two tomatoes to your kheema will make it nice and juicy.
  • Use fresh onions when making this recipe, the pre-fried ones will give it a more bitter taste
  • Be generous with your spices! For some reason, I feel like kheema just absorbs all the spices and doesn’t retain the flavor!
