Last night I made Indian meatballs. It was a good night.
I reheated some again today for lunch. It was a good afternoon.
Here’s the recipe so you can make them too:
(They are aka kebabs in the motha-land.)
What you need:
1lb. lean ground beef (I used Trader Joes 96/4 beef.)
1lb. ground turkey
1 large onion, chopped in small pieces
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup chopped mint
1 tablespoon ginger/garlic paste
2 green chilies, chopped and seeded (I use Jalapenos.)
2 potatoes, boiled, peeled and chopped (If you don’t have potatoes or are too lazy to boil them as I usually am, use 2 slices of bread. This is just to help them stick together better.)
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 palm-full salt
(I also usually add Shaan Seekh Kabab masala and Shaan chaat masala, but if you don’t have that, no sweat.)
What to do:
Mix together meats, onion, cilantro, mint, ginger/garlic paste, green chilies, eggs, potatoes/bread, turmeric, chili powder and salt. Squeeze juice of lime into mixture. Thoroughly mix all ingredients together. (If you’re squeamish, use a wooden spoon. I personally like to get dirty and use my hands. I think it tastes better that way.)
In the meantime, heat up a large pan over medium heat on the stove. Spray with Pam or a light layer of vegetable oil.
Use your hands to make two-inch sized balls with the meat mixture.
Throw kebabs into the heated pan. Heat evenly on all sides until cooked through—about ten minutes.
Eat and enjoy!
