Fried Muthi Kabab

Kababs made with a blend of ground / minced meat, onion, green chillies, mint, and spices. You can  also make meatballs from it. Simply delicious ... Fry them and enjoy as a snack on their own or prepare curries with them.

  • Grind chickpeas, coconut and poppy seeds to a fine powder.
  • Combine all ingredients except oil in a large bowl.
  • Mix well and let stand 1/2 an hour to blend flavors.
  • Take some mixture. With wet hands, shape mixture into thin sausage shapes about 4" long.
  • Heat oil for shallow frying in a large pan / wok.
  • Place kababs and cook on low heat for about 15-20 minutes until light brown and cooked through. Turn off the heat.
  • To give kababs a BBQ effect, separately heat a piece of coal until red hot and place it in a small bowl inside the pot.
  • Pour 1 tbsp oil over it and immediately cover the pot. Open after few minutes.
  • Serve with tamarind chutney, salad and yogurt raita.

NOTE: Don't stir kababs with spoon as they are tender and can break. Just move the pan occasionally to turn the kababs. Kababs will leave water during cooking, cook till water dries out.
