Kheema Pasta

Kheema and Greens Pasta (Kheema Pasta) is a simple pasta recipe with ground meat (kheema), vegetables and greens. The meat taste along with the greens makes this pasta tasty.


  • Pasta - 2 cups
  • Kheema - 1 lb (Any ground meat like ground chicken, turkey, beef or pork. For vegetarian version, soya granules can be used)
  • Vegetables  - 1 cup (Any vegetables like carrot, celery, green leafy vegetable, capsicum etc can be used can be used. I've used beet leaves in this.)
  • Onion - 1 (Finely chopped)
  • Ginger - Garlic Paste - 2 tsp
  • Tomato puree/ Tomato sauce - 2 tbsp
  • Chilly Sauce - 1 tbsp
  • Coriander Power, Cumin Powder, Fennel Powder - 1 tsp each
  • Garam Masala - a pinch
  • Turmeric Powder - a pinch
  • Butter/ Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - as needed
  • Cilantro - handful (finely chopped)


  1. Bring a big potful of water to boil. Add little salt to it and add the pasta. Let it cook according to the package instructions.
  2. In the mean time, heat the oil/butter in a pan, add the kheema and let it cook for 5 minutes until the meat is cooked.
  3. Add chopped onions and ginger garlic paste and fry for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add tomato puree, chilly sauce and all the dry masala powders (coriander, cumin, fennel, turmeric powder and garam masala).
  5. After 2 minutes add the vegetable that you want to add and required salt and let it cook for few minutes till the vegetable is cooked.
  6. Finally add the cooked pasta and toss everything together. Add some finely chopped cilantro and serve. You can even add some shredded cheese while tossing the pasta.


  • For vegetarian version, you can use soya granules or crumbled paneer.

Recipe looks simple . Is there a specific level for water to be added while cooking pasta.Do we drain excess water.Do specify.

Hi Nayeem, Every pasta requires different amount of water for cooking. Usually i cook pasta in a big pot with lot of water. The pasta should be fully submerged in water and should have enough space to expand. You have to drain the excess water once the pasta is cooked.
