Keema Wo (Split Mung Daal Topped with Minced Turkey)


If you see the picture below, it may remind you that it looks like pizza, just instead of dough, we will have Split Mung Daal mixture. Split Mung is healthy and it is a good source of protein. With my sister-in-law at home, it has been a wonderful experience to try on new recipes that we are so fond of eating back home. We tried this recipe and it turned out pretty good than expected. Also, a friend of mine asked me if I can post the recipe too. Hope she likes it and you will too! Enjoy!

Makes about 5 servings

Ingredients Needed

Split Mung Daal Mixture:
  • Mung Daal - 2 cups
  • Hing Powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
  • Ginger/Garlic Paste - 2 tsp
Minced Turkey Mixture:
  • Turkey Meat - .25 lbs.
  • Ginger/Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
  • Uncooked Mustard Oil - 1.5 tsp
Optional: Eggs for each serving

Steps to follow

For Minced Turkey Mixture, in a mixing bowl, add the minced Turkey, Ginger/Garlic Paste, Salt, Cumin Powder and Uncooked Mustard Oil.
Minced Turkey with Spices
Mix it well and set aside for 30 minutes so spices are well mixed in.
Minced Turkey Mixture
Heat cast-iron skillet on a medium heat.
Heat skillet on a medium heat
Add oil and spread around.
Spread oil in a skillet
Pour about 1/3rd cup in the skillet. You would want to add one at a time.
Pour Wo Mixture into the skillet
When you are done pouring them, you may use a spoon and spread around to make a round shape. You may need little water in a bowl so you can dip in the spoon for smoothness.
Tip: At this time, you may want to lower the heat to low so you have time to pour in the turkey mixture.
Make a round space with hand or spoon
Add Minced Turkey little at a time on top of uncooked Wo.
Add turkey as a topping
You may need to dip your spoon in the same bowl of water and press it against the batter on the skillet.
Press meat to the Wo batter in the skillet
Tip: When you layer the meat mixture, you may want to leave the middle portion empty so egg can rest in there.
Leave the middle part empty
Pour an egg in the middle section as shown. Sprinkle some salt on top of it to taste.
Add an egg
Turn on the heat to medium and let it cook for few minutes (i.e. when you know the sides of the egg is cooked), about 2-3 minutes.
Cook for few minutes
Using a long wide spatula, flip Keema Wo. If the yolk escapes out, you will need to place Keema Wo on top of where the yolk is so it stays intact.
Flip it over
Cook for about 5 minutes until meat turns brown, occasionally turning to see if the meat is cooked.
Cooked Keema Wo
Remove Wo from the skillet now and let it stand until it cools off a little. Keema Wo is ready to be served with your choice of sauce.
