Meat Kababs


Kababs & Cutlets are somthing that was always stocked in the freezer by my mom. So whenever, we were hungry, we would pop out a couple of them, fry it & sandwich it between 2 buttered slices of bread & relish it. I will keep sharing a few recipes on cutlets & kababs from my moms diary. Meanwhile, here's my own version.

1 lb finely minced meat (beef/ chicken/ lamb)
1 small onion, finely sliced
2 tbsp chopped onions
1 small tomato, chopped fine
2-3 green chillies, chopped fine
3 flakes garlic, chopped fine
1 inch piece ginger, chopped fine
1 tsp kashmiri red chilli powder
1 tsp corainder powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
3/4 tsp garam masala powder
2 eggs
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
handful of chopped corainder leaves
Oil, for frying

Beat eggs with salt & pepper. Heat oil in a pan & scramble the eggs. Set aside.

Marinate the mince with all the masala powders & salt. Set aside.

Heat oil in a pan. Put in the ginger & garlic. Fry till they turn brown. Add the sliced onions & green chillies. Fry till onions turn brown. Add tomatoes & fry till they turn soft. Set aside to cool.

Mix the chopped onions, corainder leaves, scrambled eggs & the fried masala into the marinated minced meat. Mix well in a mixing bowl. Cover & keep in the refrigerator for 30 mins.

Shape into kababs & shallow fry till they turn brown.

Squeeze lemon on the kababs & serve hot.

Cute kababs. When I think of kababs, memories go back to those ones we get in India, tandoori rolled out ones. :-) I too love kababs. Thank you for the post.
