Mince kebab

February 5, 2024

A twist on the standard kebab with mint and fresh coriander. Can be prepared as a main dish or as a snack with some chai.

Yield: 3 servings

  • 500 g hashed meat
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander chopped
  • 1 tbsp mint chopped (or powder)
  • garlic + ginger finely chopped (or paste which works just as good and probably less effort)
  • 1/2 tbsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  1. Mix everything well in a bowl.
  2. Make balls with the meat mixture (ideally same size).
  3. Cook on medium-low (4 to 5, pref. slow cook on 4 if cooking a lot) for 10 mins, 5 each side or flipping continuously.
  4. Meat should be cooked through and the pan will likely have a lot of small artefacts.
  5. Note that the egg is required to keep the meat together!
  • Using sunflower oil rather than olive oil works best.
  • Use 4 on the stove rather than 5.
  • Chicken stays together much better than Beef!
