- 500g Beef mince
- 1 medium-sized onion (finely chopped)
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 1 inch Ginger
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (more if mixture does not come together)
- 1/2 cup Fresh coriander leaves
- 1/4 cup Fresh mint leaves
- 2 tsp Lemon juice
- 1 tsp Garam masala powder
- 1 tsp Cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp Chilli powder
- 2 Green chillies (finely chopped)
- Salt to taste
- Vegetable/ Olive Oil
- Using a wooden spoon or your hands, combine all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Make sure all the ingredients are blended well together (you can also mix it all up in a food processor). Cover the bowl and refrigerator the mixture for 1 hour.
- You can either use metal skewers or bamboo skewers; if you are using bamboo skewers, soak the skewers in water for 15-20 minutes before using them.
- Remove the mixture from fridge. Apply some oil/ water on your hands to prevent meat from sticking to them, and divide the mixture into equal portions.
- Take each portion and form it into a long sausage-like kebab, while pressing on to a skewer. Do this till the mix has firmly adhered to the skewer. Repeat till all the kebab mixture is used up.
- Preheat the oven to 200*C. Grill the kebabs for about 10minutes, and when the juices start to drip, remove the tray and turn over the kebabs carefully one at a time. Return to the oven and grill for another 7-8 minutes. You can also grill them on a pan with oil. Make sure not to over cook them so that the meat doesn’t get too dry.
- Remove from the pan and serve with lime wedges, spiced yogurt and salad.
Note: You can use any kind of ground meat for this – beef, lamb or chicken. But it should not be too lean, or it will get too dry when you grill them.
