Ramadan, the holy month is here — A month of blessings and forgiveness. Ramadan is that time of the year when family togetherness, fasting, patience, and duas make it beautiful.
It takes me back to childhood when Ramadan was made all the more special by Mummy. Mum would make the most delicious sweet treats, exquisitely and carefully prepared dishes. Thanks to Didi for remaking some of Mum’s recipes and bringing back those fond memories 🙂
Here are a few Kheema recipes that you can prepare for your family.

Remove the pastry sheets from the freezer and allow to thaw as per the instructions on the packet.
Heat a little oil in a Kadai/ wok. Add the finely chopped onions and fry till golden brown.

Cook on medium flame, stirring occasionally until the kheema is done.
Add the finely chopped coriander leaves and fry for a few seconds.
Remove from fire and keep it aside.
Preheat the oven on 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius.
Take 3 tbsp of flour, add a little water, and make a smooth paste.
Cut the pastry sheets into squares. (First cut the sheet into strips and then into squares)
Apply this paste on all the sides of the squares. Fill in the squares with kheema. Now fold it into half and seal it. The paste applied on all sides will help in sealing.
Take a baking tray and apply some melted butter. Place all the puffs on the tray and brush some melted butter on the top.
Allow it to bake for half an hour. After 15 minutes, brush some more butter on top.
Serve these hot golden-brown puffs with some pudina chutney or tomato ketchup.
