I get my butcher to mince the meat 3 times. Then while cooking I break any lumps with a potato masher.

This way you get no lumps at all.

Great recipe! I made this last night, was delicious! but i placed in a caserole dish and cracked a few eggs over it (with yolks in place). I baked it for about 10 mins and served. Thanks for kheema recipe.

Excellent recipe. I liked that it wasnt overkill on the masalo. I actually made per your recipe and then i placed in a caserole dish and cracked a few eggs over it (yolks in place) and baked for around 10 mins until egg yolks cooked. Thanks - Hanif
