Chapli Kabab...

This is an Afgani dish as I have been told. I tried it first time in my life a couple of years back at one of the shops in Green Street in East London. Since then I make sure that I order one everytime I go to East London. The taste, the spices, the fragrance everything is just divine.

My wife watched it recently on a cookery show on tele and we gave it a try. It turned out wonderful and very very easy. The main idea is all the spices are crushed types and not proper powders.

* Keema 250 gms
* Dhania (whole) 2 tsp
* Red chilli powder (crushed) 1 tsp
* Anar daana (pomogranate seeds) 2 tsp
* Black pepper (crushed) 7-8
* Ginger garlic paste 1-2 tsp
* Red chillies (2-3) crushed
* Fresh Corriander
* Onion 1 medium (finely chopped)
* Tomato 1 medium (finely chopped)
* 1 egg
* Roasted gram flour 2 tbsp

Mix all the ingredients thoroughly exept egg and roasted gram flour.
Beat egg, fry half into kind of scrambled egg. Add it to the keema mix.
Mix the remaining half beaten egg to the mix and also the gram flout.
Marinate it in kitchen for 2-3 hours.
Roll the kabab mix into a paratha type thingee and shallow fry till dark brown.
Serve hot with nan bread.

that's an interesting recipe...anaar daana might add a tanginess, i more in the to do list...

yeah it adds a bit of tanginess and a very distinctive texture as well. Give it a try and let me know :-)

bariama makes best ones afghani kebab but i am going to try ur recpie today n gonna impress her *cool*

yeah try it ... it is simple and delicious but am sure not as tasty as bariamas... unse bhi recipe pooch lena

just a little might want to add some cornmeal (note: NOT cornflour) to it. Makes it more tasty :)
