Galouti Kebabs By Chef Aji Joseph, Head of Culinary Development, FreshToHome

Complete RECIPE At A Go:

  • Tip keema (minced meat) into a bowl and add salt and raw papaya paste; mix thoroughly to combine and set aside to marinate for 2 hours
    Make dry masala powder:  Toss some cumin, coriander seeds, green cardamom pods, dried red chillies, cloves, black cardamom seeds, cinnamon powder, mace powder, and nutmeg powder into a masala grinder or a small food processor
    Make wet masala paste: Take some roasted cashew nuts and add roasted chironji, fried onion, garam masala, black pepper powder, roasted gram flour, dry masala powder, thick cream, and kewra water. Grind, adding 2 to 4 tablespoons water as needed, to make a smooth paste
  • Place marinated keema and wet masala paste in a bowl and mix thoroughly with a spatula.
  • Tip the mixture into a casserole dish and spread it evenly. Create a “hole” or gap in the centre of the mixture with the spatula
  • Put a hot burning piece of charcoal on an onion and place it on the hole. Pour 2 teaspoons ghee onto the charcoal; it will start smoking.
  • Immediately cover the dish tightly with the lid and set aside for 30 minutes to allow the smoke to infuse the keema mixture
    Make kebabs: Transfer the mixture to a bowl and mix well. Lightly oil your palms so that you can work with the mixture without it sticking to your hands. Tear off a walnut size chunk of the mixture, roll into a ball between your palms, then flatten slightly to form a smooth fat disk. Set it down and repeat the same for the remaining mixture.
  • Place a heavy pan on high heat; add ghee. Once hot but not smoking, carefully place the kebabs in the ghee without crowding the pan. Fry the kebabs till golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side, adjusting heat as needed. Remove from pan and place on kitchen paper to absorb excess oil.
  • Garnish with slit green chillies and onion slices; serve hot with green chutney or any condiment of your choice.
