Lukhmi (Urdu: لقمی) is a typical mince savoury or starter of the cuisine of Hyderabad, Telangana, India.[1] It is a local variation of samosa. The snack's authentic preparation includes stuffing with mutton-mince kheema (ground meat). 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.


Mince meat (kheema), flour and yogurt.


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.
