 Kadhai Kheema is more like a street style or a restaurant style of making a mince curry. If you watch the video and observe carefully the whole procedure, you will notice that I have not added a drop of water or any tomatoes for that matter. The mince cooks in its own juices along with yogurt which helps it with some moisture.

If you check out my previous post of mince curry called Kheema Karela which was a very big hit, I have used tomatoes instead of yogurt. Here mince cooks and tenderizes while cooking with tomatoes and does not need any water to be added.

There is no need of cooking mince in a pressure cooker as I find most of the people doing it, which again needs water to keep the mince from drying out. By slow cooking method or 'Dum' cooking the curry with all the spices on low flame, does all the magic and gives you the results of a restaurant-style Kheema.

You can cook this curry with vegetable oil as well, but ghee gives more richness and a royal flavor to the curry. Lemon juice is an optional ingredient here because the yogurt which I have used is quite sour and does not require extra sourness.
