Quick and easy Chicken Keema Pakoda - a 30 minutes recipe
Around 250g of Chicken Keema, some onion, garlic, green chili, and Besan aka Gram Flour along with an egg and basic spices. Oh, I have not started writing the recipe already. It is just the ingredients I had last to last Sunday to make some quick munchies.
Guests do not come invited always. Do they? Well, not that I am complaining! Am I not? I love a few specific people as guests. The thing is it is not about invited or uninvited guests but something else. Mehebub's 1st cousin and her fiance' were invited to our place a few days back. While everything else was planned, I completely forgot about snacks! I remembered while clearing the table hardly forty minutes before their arrival. Not that they would mind. After all, they are family (and soon-to-be family) but I was not comfortable. I mean you cannot really expect me to serve nothing before lunch! Errrrrr!
I decided to make some chicken pakoda within no time! Well well! I didn't check the freezer and then realized neither chicken pieces with bone nor boneless were available. However, I found a packet of Chicken Keema and decided to make Chicken Keema Pakoda. I asked them to wait till I click a few pictures so that I can write the recipe here. That's all!
Aha, that day apart from the chicken pakodas, I cooked Shrimp in Creamy Spinach Sauce another 30 minutes recipe, Oriya Mutton Curry, Bengali Veg Daal, some Shak Bhaja, and Tomato Amsotto Khejur er Chutney. There was Fruit Custard for dessert as well.

Instructions - easy steps for making perfect chicken mince fritters
Mix all the ingredients except egg, besan, and oil
Add egg followed by Besan and make the batter. If needed add water.
Heat Oil and fry Pakodas. See the Recipe card for cuts, time, process, tips, and timings
Serve Chicken Keema Pakoda hot with ketchup or Chutney
- Spicy - add chili pepper flakes while cooking to imbue heat into the dish.
- Kid-friendly - Adjust the spices; better make a separate batch for them by limiting chilly.
I prefer to use a non-stick pan to fry the Chicken Keema Pakodas.
We generally do not store Pakodas as they lost their crispiness when cold. However, I often make the batter and keep it for an hour and two before making the pakodas
Do not fry Chicken Keema Pakodas over high heat. Always keep the flame medium. This way the chicken will be well-cooked and there will be no raw aroma of Besan once the frying is done.
