Kheema Patties are Puff pastries stuffed with a spiced ground meat filling. Typically found in bakeries in Goa, Mumbai and all over India, these are devoured at tea time or eaten as a snack!

These patties are reminiscent of the bakeries back home with it’s spicy Meat filling. Puff pastry is made by rolling layers of dough with butter in between to give it that incredible buttery taste and flaky texture. I’ve made Chicken Patties & Shrimp on my channel before and I will be uploading a ground meat version as well. Whatever the feeling, Patties or Puff Pastries are delicious snack or appetizer. Perfect with a beverage cold or hot!
