Chapli Kebab
Cuisine: Pakistani
Recipe type: Kebabs
Serves: 6
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ kg lean beef mince
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon crushed cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon red chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon crushed coriander seeds (not coriander powder)

  1. Make a small omelette made with the 2 eggs, a pinch of salt, and small grind of black pepper. Chop the omelette in small pieces and set aside (refrigerate them is best).
  2. Mix all of the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours (this allows the flavours to blend).
  3. When ready to cook, add the omelette pieces to the mince mixture and combine thoroughly.

  5. Serve with slices of tomato and lemon or a fresh salad.
