Panini with Kheema (Panini with Ground Meat)

Panini's are great for parties when only finger food is served. These are filling and make great snacks. I made these ahead of time and all they need is, to be placed in a 300 deg F oven for 10 minutes before serving. I hope everyone enjoys these Panini's for tonight's Super Bowl gathering at our friends.


12 grinder rolls
1 lb lean ground meat, I used chicken
1- 8oz pack sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup frozen green peas
1 large onion, chopped fine
4 green chilies, chopped fine
3 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1"ginger, chopped fine
1 tsp red chili powder (optional)
1/2 tsp haldi (turmeric powder)
1/4 cup tomato puree
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
salt to taste
8 oz mozzarella or cheddar cheese, shredded/ sliced,

How it's made:

In a wide pan, heat oil. Add green chillies, garlic and ginger. Fry for a minute until color changes. Add onions and fry until translucent. Add a tsp of salt while frying onions. Add chilli powder and haldi. Saute until well combined. Add tomato puree and ground meat. Combine well and cook until meat is almost done. Add mushroom and peas. Stir and cook for a minute or two. Add coriander powder, cumin powder. Adjust salt. Add mint leaves and remove from heat.

To assemble Panini:
Slice bread horizontally. Spread a couple of tablespoons of ground meat mixture. Place two or three slices of cheese to cover the meat mixture. Place on Panini maker for 4-5 minutes  Cut in half and serve hot with chips on the side.
