Crispy Aloo keema Patties /Cutlets Recipe | Step by Step

Step by step Aloo keema patties recipe / Aloo keema cutlets recipe with photos.

Aloo (potato) keema (mince) patties are childhood delights. This is among most favourite Bohra iftar food. And, it is so simple to make. It has many steps but you can go slow like boil potatoes in morning and make qeema whenever you get time around midday and simultaneously mash and season potatoes. Then around teatime season keema and form patties and fry around night for dinner. That’s how my Dadi would make it with ease and convenience. Ofcourse, you can make it in one go. Cooling mince and potato will require some time while all other step are quick and easy.

Soft mashed potatoes with spicy keema (mince) inside and wrapped with crispy breadcrumb coating refreshes the childhood memories of living in joint family with cousins and siblings. The memory hold double story bungalow and huge backyard to play hide and seek, ‘baraf Pani’ , kho kho, oonch neech and so many other games. We had ample of free time so free to catch flies between nylon tea strainer and net of window when everyone was dozed off after lunch. Dadi (grandma) use to make Aloo qeema patties with lots of love. For me being lucky is having a childhood close to grandparents (in my case also great grandparents) and being nutured under the shadow of their wisdom and blessings.

      Pleasure is mine! 😊 I’ve never tried freezing it, as potatoes tend to loose a lot of water upon freezing. You can test freezing 2-3 petti after double coating with crumbs.
