Keema Stuffed Paratha is a simple one dish meal that is rich in protein and carbohydrates. It is also called as Kachche Keeme ka Paratha or Birhai and can be made in a jiffy. My son Aasim loves it for its taste and I love making it for the ease of cooking it.


  • Mutton Keema (Goat meat minced) - 300 gms
  • Onions finely chopped -2 medium size
  • green coriander finel chopped - 1/2 bunch
  • Green chillies finely chopped - 3-5
  • Garam masala - 1tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Wheat flour - 500 gms
  • Water to knead the dough - as required
  • Oil -as required
  • lime juice - 4-5 Tbsp


Step 1

Knead the dough and make dough balls (the dough should have a bit of oil and salt)

Step 2

Marinate mutton Keema with lime juice, garam masala, chopped green chillies and chopped coriander for 1 hour. Add salt to this mixture just before you are ready to roll out the parathas.

Step 3

Roll the dough and spoon in Keema (about 1 Tbsp) mixture in center. Fold in carefully so that Keema stays in the center.

Step 4

Roll the dough/Keema ball carefully into a round paratha Pat the paratha by hand so that it thins out and some Keema peeks out of the paratha (this makes the Keema to get a bit fried/burnt on the ladle enhancing the flavour)

Step 5

Put over a hot girdle and let it cook. Apply oil and cook over medium heat for about a minute and a half. Turn and cook the other side. By now the Keema would be cooked and parathas will be crisp.

Step 6

Serve hot paratha with chutney of your choice.

I serve it with Coriander and mint raita and rings of onions with a wedge of lemon
