  • Dry roast coriander seeds,cumin seeds,pepper and kashmiri dry red chillies grind it to a coarse powder .
  • In a mixer jar ,take ginger garlic ,green chillies coriander and mint leaves and onion and roughly grind it to a coarse mixture ,we don't need a smooth paste.

  • Add the coriander cumin mixture,salt garam masala powder to the mince and mix well
  • Add lime /lemon juice and keep aside for 2 hours or over night.
  • Once you are ready to shape them ,heat a coal until red hot ,place  a small foil over the mince mixture and keep the coal add a drop of ghee or oil on the burning coal and immediately cover it tight with a lid or a bowl ,keep it covered for 5 to 7 minutes 
  • Then wet your hands and take the skewers(soaked in water for 30 minutes)
  • Take a small size of the mixture and shape it into kebabs on skewers.
  • Heat oil in a pan and fry them till done ,you may grill them too.

  • It takes about 5 to 7 minutes to cook ,once brown remove them and serve with mint chutney ,lime wedges and onion rings.

  • notes
  • I blend the mince with the other ingredients so that all mixes well you can skip the step
  • Add besan/gram flour if you feel the mixture id breaking and not holding shape 
  • Add in little fat while making the mince or add 1 tsp butter to the mince if no fat was used,this is optional but it makes the kebab more yumm.
