  • 2 lbs minced Meat
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp - bread crumbs
  • 1/4th cup - onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4th cup - Ginger paste
  • 1/3rd cup - cilantro/ coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 3 green chilies
  • 1/2 tsp - white pepper powder (use black pepper powder if white is unavailable)
  • 2 tsp - Garam Masala
  • 1/2 cup - salted cashews, ground coarsely
  • 1 1.5 tsp - salt
  • For Basting:
  • 2 tbsp - Butter
  • How to Make Sali Seekh:

    1. Whisk the eggs in a bowl.
    2. Add them to the ground beef/lamb. Mix well.
    3. Now add all the remaining ingredients to the meat except the butter and mix well.
    4. Keep aside for 15 minutes.
    5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
    6. Skewer Version:
    7. Divide into 12 equal balls.
    8. Using a wet hand spread each ball along the length of each skewer making each kebab 5 inches long.
    9. Quick Tip:
    10. The skewers used should be at least 1/2 an inch thick, so that the meat stays on while cooking.
    11. You will find these at gourmet cookery stores.
    12. The meat will have the tendency to fall off when you use thin skewers.
    13. Baste with butter and grill on an open grill for three to four minutes.
    14. Non-Skewer Version: If you are not using skewers.
    15. Divide the meat into 24 to 30 balls.
    16. Place on a cookie sheet 1.5 inch apart.
    17. Quick Tip:
    18. Always line the pan with a heavy foil to collect the drippings, so that cleaning is a breeze.
    19. Bake in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and hang the skewers to let the excess moisture drip off, (approximately two minutes).
    20. To Proceed:
    21. Remove the meatballs from the pan and saute in a hot pan, in butter for a couple of minutes.
    22. Serve with Mint Chutney and Onion salad.
