Lukhmi (Urdu: لقمی) is a typical mince savoury or starter of the cuisine of Hyderabad, Telangana, India. 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.
The word comes from loqma or morsel.
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.
