Indian Flavoured Kebabs

Soak 9 bamboo skewers in water while making the meat mixture.

Mix together in a large bowl:

  • 1 cup very finely minced onion (1 large)
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • one 2 ½“ piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced (about ¼ cup)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Add and mix with hands until evenly combined:

  • 1 ½ lbs ground beef

Shape this mixture into 9 flattened sausage shapes, approximately 4” long, 1 ½“ wide, and 1” high.   Carefully thread each sausage shape onto a skewer.

Grill on a barbecue until browned and just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.  You may also broil them in the oven, for 3 to 5 minutes per side, using a slotted broiling tray.

Serve wrapped in a warm naan or pita, or with basmati rice, and raita.
