And we're back again with a new recipe for you guys! This happens to be a childhood favorite for Aena - she absolutely loves it! On the other hand, it was Arvin's first time trying these a few weeks back and he loves it just as much! ?
This is a recipe Aena's mom has handed down to us - it's super easy to make, hardly takes 20 minutes from start to finish, but tastes absolutely delicious!!
The day we made these, we took them over to our friends' place and they all fell in love with these kebabs. They were literally all gone in 5 minutes! SO GOOD ?! And since that day, our friends keep asking us to make these again for them - some have even made these themselves at home!!
This recipe seriously needs no special India-specific ingredient except for Garam Masala - and considering how most Indian foods has this spice, it really is worth buying and having in our pantry!
Since we've shifted to Malaysia, we're still so new to KL that we haven't found the right place to buy all the special Indian spices from. But this recipe was so easy that we only needed garam masala and it's so readily available everywhere! We bet your local Indian grocery store will have this stocked up!
You really don't need to have any technical cooking skills to make these delicious kebabs - ALL it takes is some basic ingredients and the best tool in the world - YOUR HANDS!
Chop put the tomatoes and onions, grab the minced meat and spices and put them all in a bowl - then just mix it up with your hands (or you can use a spatula or wooden spoon if you want) and that's pretty much it for the prep. After that you just need a fry pan/grill and you're good to go. Soon enough you'll be gobbling down these delicious kebabs!
