Essential elements of these kebabs
Lamb is not a popularly consumed meat, owing to its high-fat content and strong taste. Therefore, the seasoning of lamb is of the utmost importance. Garlic is an essential part of this seasoning which helps to balance the intense flavor of the meat. You can either use freshly chopped garlic or garlic powder.
Minced meat is a bit tricky to use. You have to pat dry minced lamb with a kitchen towel to remove as much moisture as possible. However, make sure not to press too hard as it will squeeze out all the moisture, leaving the mince quite dry.
All the flavor-packed seasonings boost the taste of these kebabs. However, it is actually the breadcrumbs and cornstarch that brings the entire dish together.
Both breadcrumbs and cornstarch serve as a binder that prevents the kebab from falling apart.
Serve these spicy lamb kebabs with either green chutney, spicy mayo or yogurt dip. A great idea would be to make a special yogurt dip with mint and cumin.
You can also serve this inside a bun as a lamb burger. Fill with veggies, cheese, spicy mayo and watch your loved ones shout out in delight.
Enjoy these flavor-packed patties and rest assured you will be a fan of this finger-licking food.

- 1/2 kg (1 pound) minced lamb
- 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup coriander/cilantro, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon pepper powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
- 3 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon corn starch
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
Add the lamb to a mixing bowl. Pat with a kitchen towel to remove liquid if any.
Add onion + cilantro + paprika + garlic powder + pepper powder + salt + lemon juice and mix like you are kneading the dough.
Add cornstarch + bread crumbs and mix well again. Place a skillet over medium-high heat and brush generously with some oil.
Take a small portion of the lamb mixture and slightly flatten. Place it on the skillet and cook for about a minute on each side or till the inside is cooked. Taste and adjust the flavor in the remaining mixture if needed.
Divide the mixture into 15 portions, then roll it and slightly flatten it like a patty. Place these in the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or till the inside is cooked and the outside is slightly charred.
Serve this with green chutney, spicy mayo or any yogurt based dip.
Garlic powder is a wonderful spice to have in the pantry. It gives a nice flavor to any dish but if you don't have it handy, fry about two cloves of chopped garlic in a tiny bit of oil and add it to the minced lamb.
