Recipe Ingredients

  • 2lbs/ 1kg approx. lean ground lamb or beef (or a mix of them)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped mint leaves (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic – peeled & crushed
  • 1 green chilli – finely chopped
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1-2 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • lemon wedges, parsley leaves, green olives, hummus, pickles & khubz/ pita bread on the side
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Recipe Method

  1. Mix all the ingredients together other than the bread-crumbs, milk, eggs, oil & sides/garnish items.
  2. Leave to marinate for 20 min (30 is better).
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, bread-crumbs & milk into a coarse mix – do not over mix & mash.
  4. Now add the egg-crumb mixture into the meat mixture, evenly yet not over-mixed!
  5. This gives a semi-crunchy texture to the kebabs.
  6. Shape into 1 inch thick rolls & press skewers through them lengthwise, gently pressing the meat onto the metal and barbeque until meat is cooked smearing with oil from time to time. OR
  7. Press the roll flat (3-4 cm thick) onto a baking tray or grill pan & grill on medium heat (high heat will dry them up) for 10-15 minutes on both side, smearing with olive oil from time to time.
  8. Place kebabs onto a bed of salad (chopped lettuce, plain or roasted tomatoes & onion rings, pickles, olives, etc.)
  9. Spoon some hummus on the side along with some tempting lemon & khubz wedges.
  10. Serve with some Laban (Ayran) as a side-drink.
