Chapli Kabab

Do you like Kababs, I love them. I made this once jobless new year. I was home alone in Qatar, while my husband was in India. To make time pass on new years eve I made these, they were lovely… Of course I ate most of them myself, but the few I took to school on the 3rd of January was a big hit with my colleagues. I hope you will try this and let me know how it was.

My new year lunch Jeera rice, chapli kabab, Dal fry, chicken fry, and lemon pickle.

Instructions

Mix everything together then refrigerate the mixture for half an hour. If you leave them too long, the tomatoes will release water and make the kababs soggy, so they will end up breaking in the oil. You can even shape the patties and place them on a tray, then stick the tray in the freezer for half an hour so they firm up. Then proceed to fry them directly from the freezer…this helps maintain their shape. 🙂

Heat a small non-stick frying pan with 2-3 inches of oil, shape the patties flat and round. Fry them on high heat first then lower the heat to medium low and continue cooking the kababs until the color is nice and dark. Turn them over carefully and cook the other side. Try not to crowd the pan, it will be easier to turn if you do 2-3 at a go. Remove and drain on kitchen towels. Drizzle some lemon juice on them before serving. Serve with onions and mint chutney.
