Servings 2


  • 300 grms Mutton Mince, Keema
  • 2 tbsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp Red Chili Powder
  • 2 nos Onions Medium Size, Chopped
  • 2 nos Tomatoes Medium Size, Chopped
  • 1/2 cup Tomato Puree
  • 2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 3-4 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
  • 3-4 cups Boiled Macaroni
  • 2-3 tbsp Cheese For garnish
  • Best Drop Lite Oil For Cooking
  • Coal for Smoke


  • In a mixing bowl, combine Keema, salt, red chili powder & ginger garlic paste. Mix it well and keep it aside.
  • In a thick bottom pan or a Kadhai, heat some oil and tip in chopped onions. Sauté onions until they turn soft and translucent.
  • Then, add chopped tomatoes and mix well. Sauté on medium heat for about 5-7 minutes, until Masala is well combined.
  • Now, add the marinated Keema and mix well. Sauté it on medium heat until the extra moisture dries up. Add the tomato puree and sautéuntil Keema is 90% cooked. You may add water if required.
  • Once this is done, season it with Dhaniya powder, Jeera powder & tomato ketchup. Sauté for another 3-4 minutes more and then turn off the heat.
  • Let’s give smoke to the Keema now. Heat a coal piece on the gas until red. Now, keep it in a steel Katori and keep it over Keema; add a dash of ghee. Now, cover and let the smoke penetrate.
  • Once the Keema is smoked, add the boiled macaroni and cook for about 5 minutes. You may adjust the consistency of the sauce if required.
  • Dish it out in a baking dish and garnish with grated cheese, bake it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius, for 5-7 minutes; until it forms a nice golden crust. Alternatively, you may garnish the macaroni with cheese in the Kadhai itself, and cover and cook on low heat for about 5minutes. Serve hot.
