Lukhmi (Urdu: لقمی‎) is a typical mince savoury or starter of the cuisine of Hyderabad, India.[1] The snack's authentic preparation includes stuffing with mutton-mince kheema. It is a non-vegetarian derivative of the samosa although, unlike the latter, the lukhmi is shaped into a flat square patty.[2]

The word comes from loqma or morsel.

Ingredients[edit]

Mince meat (Keema), flour and yogurt.

Preparation[edit]

Prepare the dough in yogurt, mixing it thoroughly until it becomes very smooth, and stuff it with minced meat.

Kheemey-ki-Lukhmi is still served as a starter in the authentic Hyderabadi weddings and other celebrations.
