Servings: 2 people, coz you wouldn’t want to share.

Prep Time: 10 mins + 1 hour refrigiration

Cooking Time: 25- 30 mins



Mutton or lamb mince: 500gms

Onion: 1 super finely chopped

Ginger garlic paste: 2 tbsp

Lemon juice: of 1 lemon

Fresh coriander leaves: ½ cup

Mint leaves: ½ cup

Garam masala powder: 2 tsp

Cumin powder: 2 tsp

Coriander powder: 1 tbsp

Green chillies: 2 finely chopped or cayenne pepper: 2 tsp

Paprika or Kashmiri mirch powder: 2 tsp

Salt to taste

Grated raw papaya: 2 tbsp (this is a tenderizing agent)

Ghee or cooking oil: 2-3 tbsp




Wash the minced meat well in warm water, place in the colander and squeeze out the whole water.

Combine all the ingredients and knead just like dough.

Cover the bowl with cling film and put into the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Soak bamboo skewers in water to prep for the kebabs also preheat the oven to 180-190 c.

Take a big portion or ball of the kebab mixture and press around the skewer. Flatten the mixture to stick tightly around the skewer. Do this till the mix has firmly adhered to the skewer. Put some oil on your hands to prevent meat from sticking to them.

Place the skewers in hot oven and keep the oven on grill mode. Keep rotating them occasionally and brush the kebabs with ghee or oil. (I cooked my kebabs partly on the grill pan and then in the oven).


If you do not have an oven, then you can cook them on a non stick pan too. Cook the kebabs till they are well done. The kebabs take 20-25 minutes to cook in the oven, since I like my kebabs very well done, I cook for about 30 minutes. When the kebabs have turned brown evenly, they are done.

Serve with you favourite chutney. The green coriander & mint chutney goes best with this. You can find the recipe here,
