Chicken Kheema Sandwich Recipe
Chicken is a quick and easy meat to prepare. Gets done within minutes. And if it is chicken kheema it gets done as fast as paneer does.
Minced chicken or chicken kheema is faster to cook and when mixed with the right masalas is a treat to eat too.
Here I make an almost dry kheema to go into a sandwich.
Chicken Sandwiches are full of protein and are a complete meal. Hence these tend to be a good breakfast option. But this sandwich is a bit on the spicier side and hence not sure, if this would really go as breakfast for me. It would though be an ideal lunch or a very heavy evening snack.
This sandwich reminds me of the taste of minced meat served as street food in maidarotis or wrapped in omelettes. These are often available easily during the iftar street food outlets.
Here is my recipe for the same.
