Have fun learning new skills by making these delicious seekh kebabs with the family whilst at home during the lockdown.
500g minced mutton or lamb
1 medium-size onion
2/3 fresh green chilli finely
1 clove of fresh garlic
1/2 inch of fresh ginger
1tsp crushed red chilli flakes
1tsp coriander powder
1tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
1/4 cup of fresh coriander chopped
2tsp vegetable oil
Place the mince in a bowl.
Add all the spices, salt and oil into the bowl of meat.
Add chopped onion, garlic, ginger, coriander, chillies and egg in a blender and blend the ingredients to a paste.
Once blended add them to the mincemeat
Mix all ingredients using your hand, ensuring all spices are mixed in well.
Leave the mixture to rest for half an hour. The flavours in the mixture become stronger the longer you leave it.
Make small balls with the meat and then roll them into long even kebab shapes.
Place them on a foiled tray.
Cook in a preheated oven on 180 degrees or gas mark 5. Remember to turn the kebabs over. Kebabs cooking time 15 mins, but depending on your oven.
Serve them hot with mint sauce and salad
Yazi's kids always loved them in a wrap with salad and a variety of sauces, her youngest favouring tomato ketchup. So why not try them!
