Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp, coarsely ground
Coriander seeds - 1 tsp, roasted and coarsely ground
Cumin Seeds - 1tsp, roasted and ground
Green Chillies - 4, finely chopped
Onion - 1, finely chopped
Tomatoes - 2, finely chopped
Mint - 2 tbsp finely chopped
Cilantro - 2 tbsp finely chopped
Pomogranate seeds/ anar dana - 1 tbsp
Besan - 3 tbsp
Egg - 1
Oil for pan frying


Mix all of the above ingredients with minced meat and knead well. Set aside for 15 to 20 minutes.

Take the meat mixture ,roll it to form a smooth ball. Flatten the ball by pressing firmly between your palms. ( dip your hands in water, so it don't stick to the hands).  The size of the kebab should be almost the size of your palm when pressed or slightly bigger.

Heat oil in frying pan. When oil gets hot, lower the heat and fry kebabs until well done.
