Kashmiri kebab

1 cup minced meat
1 onion
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 green chillie or more to taste
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp chillie powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg optional
2 cups water
oil to shallow fry

Grind all the ingredients except egg in a food processor till it is a paste, don't add water.
Add the egg and mix if using, egg is not needed for this. Make oblong shapes with a tablespoon of mixture, this recipe makes 12 kebabs.
Bring 2 cups of water to boil in a pan that will fit the kebabs in a single layer. When the water is boiling add the kebabs in it and let it cook undisturbed in medium heat till water evaporates. Let it cool a little before frying.
Heat oil about 1" high and fry the kebabs till it is golden brown. Make sure it doesn't burn and turn to make sure all the sides are fried. Serve hot with coriander chutney, mint chutney or tamarind chutney.

  2. These look delicious!All these ingredients are so healthy, and the finished product has perfect presentation. Well done.

  3. I love kebabs! They're so yummy. I've never fried them, though - I always throw them on the grill. I should try this because I won't have to wait till grilling season to have kebabs!

  4. Being Armenian, kebabs are a normal part of life. These have some very interesting ingredients. Many thanks.

  5. This sounds like a wonderful tasty Kebab, I love the idea of boiling it first before frying it...
    thanks for such a great recipe!

  6. I also just throw my kebabs on the grill. I love the idea of mixing the minced meat with all those grand spices and throwing them in some oil. It's certainly warming for the winter.

  7. We just did lamb in a similar style last night. The flavors are wonderful. Much sadness when it is gone!


  8. Love kebabs! Your looks delicious.
