We are in a city that is woefully without a lot of middle eastern options. You have indian, indian, and indian to choose from. Well, sometimes a foodie cannot live by naan alone. So to make up for our local dining deficit and ofcourse keep things within my weight loss reach it was time to make a kebab. This kebab is not your typical shish kebab or other such round tasty morsel. This one is more of the patty variety that is often sold as street vender fare. It is definitely a nummy indulgence with a bit of chutney.
- 1 tbl chickpea flour
- 1 lb lean ground beef, extra fine (you can get a butcher to do this)
- 6 tbl fresh parsley
- 2 hot green chili, cut fine
- 1 1/2 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 egg white
- 3 cloves garlic, cut fine
- 1 small onion, cut fine
- brown the flour in a pan until it is lightly browned. Transfer to a bowl.
- Add all the ingredients and mix. Form into 10 2 inch balls, flatten to make patties.
- grill or pan fry, turning frequently (20 seconds) for 3 minutes. Remove from heat to a papertowel to allow fat to drain further. Serve.
This makes 10 patties. Each patty is 128 calories, 9 gram of fat, and 0.3 grams of fiber. This is nice paired with a cinnamon rice (in the picture) and banana fig chutney if you can get your hands on one.
