Qeema Naan | Hyderabad Special Keema Naan

Qeema Naan

Qeema Naan or Keema Naan is a popular flatbread available in Hyderabad, made with minced meat in a flaky parotta.

In this vegetarian version, I have used minced soya granules and stuffed in a flaky flatbread, typical to the version popular in Hyderabad. I have often heard Hubby Dear mention this Keema Naan that he used to enjoy during his stay in Hyderabad many years ago.

He has always been talking about how flaky and juicy the naan is. It’s called a naan though in resemblance it looks more like the parotta we get in the south. So when I was doing the AtoZ International Street Food, I had picked up a couple of dishes that needed minced meat and I wanted to replace it with soya granules.

Toshka, a Damascus Sandwich and Nachos Supreme were two of the dishes that needed to be made using minced meat. I thought why not make it vegetarian by using soya granules. During the time I was planning to make, we had already decided on September theme and it suddenly struck me that I could make the Qeema Naan that is a Hyderabad special that hubby dear was always talking about.

So you see, this was one dish that was cooked and clicked so many months before. I was very sure I wasn’t going to make it again. The dish was very good, though we are not big fan of soya chunks.

I was so glad that I had a dish for the Q in the AtoZ Flatbread and More, where I am doing AtoZ Indian Flatbreads. If you are keen on knowing whats for Q in Dosa Varieties, hop over!

  1. That paratha looks yum Valli. I have a box full of soya granules and I was wondering what to do. This looks like a tasty way to get through it. So yummy!

  2. In Mombasa, minced meat filled chapati as its called is very popular as street food. Your preparation reminds me of the chapati. I don’t like soya, but perhaps would fill it with paneer.

  3. Wow at first I did though I of kheema in this and was searching and then got to know you replaced with soya granules. Interesting and innovative ideas must say.
