  • 1 tsp kasoori methi (fenugreek leaves)
  • 2 tbsp coriander, finely chopped

  • 1/4 tsp chaat masala

  • 1 tbsp chopped mint
  • salt to taste
  1. Blend the chillies with green papaya paste (or whole green papaya) to form a paste.

  4. Heat the grill pan/griddle and add 1 tbsp oil. 

  5. Add four to five patties at a time. Cook for 10 minutes then flip over.

  6. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until cooked through.

Cucumber Mint Yoghurt Dip
  1. Beat the yoghurt with the sugar, salt, chaat masala.

  2. Add chopped cucumber and mint, combine well. Serve cold.

Recipe Notes
  1. You may use beef mince instead of lamb.
  2. This kebab is usually deep fried but we prefer it grilled/pan fried. Adjust cooking time according to your cooking method.
  3. Dried fenugreek leaves and Kashmiri chilli powder can be found in any Indian grocery store. 
  4. Substitute Kashmiri chilli powder with regular chilli powder or paprika.
  5. Cook/grill on medium heat so as not to overcook and dry the kebabs out.
