Warqui Kheema Lukhmi is a traditional starter of Hyderabad. It’s simply a local variation to samosa which normally is shaped in a square but some places they shape in a triangle.
Traditionally mutton Kheema is used as the stuffing. I tried with Chicken Kheema and soy Kheema. Both came out really tasty.
