Pakistani-Style Spiced Kebabs

Pakistani-Style Spiced Kebabs
These simple, everyday spiced kebabs are no-fuss and perfect for an anytime meal. They require just a few staples — ground beef (ground chicken or lamb would work great as well), onion, chili, cilantro, breadcrumbs, and an egg with a mix of pantry spices. Many South Asian dishes start with a rotation of the same spices — ginger, garlic, cumin, coriander, and chili (also turmeric). For this recipe I used the Essential Spices collection from The Spice House, bringing warmth, heat, and flavor. The kebabs are fried in a bit of Brightland's AWAKE olive oil till juicy and charred. Enjoy with a cucumber onion salad and yogurt on the side, perhaps some warm naan and chutney too — now we’re talking.

Preparation Instructions:

Add the ground beef, grated onion, chili, cilantro, breadcrumbs, egg, ground ginger, granulated  garlic, ground cumin, ground coriander, cayenne pepper, and salt to a large bowl. Mix until  combined. 

With a 1/4 cup measure, scoop out the ground beef mixture and use your hands to form into  round patties — about 3 inches in diameter. 

Heat a large skillet over medium-hight heat with 1 tablespoon of AWAKE olive oil and fry the  
kebabs until deep brown and charred on both sides. 

Cook for about 4 minutes per side.

Enjoy immediately.
