Galavat Ke Kebab (Mridula Baljekar)
« on: January 25, 2010, 09:51 PM »


1tbsp sunflower or corn oil
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
500g minced lamb or mutton
1tbsp ginger puree
1tbsp garlic puree
1tbsp coriander leaves and stalks, roughly chopped
1-2 green chillies, chopped
2tbsp natural yoghurt
50g pineapple, roughly chopped
1tsp garam masala
1tsp salt or to taste


Heat the oil over a medium heat and fry the onions until browned (6-7 minutes), stirring frequently.

Put all the ingredients together in a food processor and blend until smooth.  The Indian way of smoking can be done by arranging the kabab mix in a large metal bowl or saucepan such that you have a small depression in the centre to hold a small bowl with a little oil or ghee in it.  Place a live coal in the bowl and cover the large bowl (which has the kabab mix and the small bowl in it) with a lid.

Keep it covered for 15 minutes. The smoky flavour will permeate the meat beautifully.  You can, of course, make the kababs without smoking the mix or cook them on the barbecue for the smoky flavour.

Mould the kabab mix into small cakes and shallow fry them until browned on both sides (3-4 minutes each side).
