Most of the time, starters will be crunchy and crispy and often deep-fried, whether they are vegetarian or non-vegetarian. If you choose vegetarian there will be paneer/cottage cheese, cauliflower, potato, onion rings, fritters and vegetarian kebab/kabob. And if you go for non-vegetarian then fish finger, chicken 65, sizzlers, tikka, tandoori, fried chicken/fish, fried meatballs, skewed meat/chicken, barbeque, cutlets and kebabs. Mutton/mincemeat kebab non-veg starter is a very famous appetizer in the restaurant menu.
Today I am going to make a simple Mutton/mincemeat kebab non-veg starter recipe and I not going to use any electronic types of equipment like oven/grill. These kebabs are made using Iron pan/Tava.
I am using the goat meat for this recipe. You can use chicken or any other meat if you prefer. When you prefer to use chicken the cooking time will vary as chicken tends to cook faster.
I am using fresh shallots, ginger, garlic and green chillies.If you have ginger garlic paste and onion paste you can use them.
I am using cinnamon,cloves and cardamom as spices are low in this recipe to balance and retain the original flavour.
Fried Gram Powder
I am using fried gram powder as a binding agent and to give volume and taste to the kebabs. You can grind the fried grams if you get them.
I am using Thai chilli and using them in fewer numbers because they are very hot and spicy. If you prefer more spiciness you can increase the numbers. Don’t add chilli powder as they tend to change the colour and the overall result and appearance will be different.
These kebabs are not deep-fried. I am using an Iron pan/tava to shallow fry the kebabs to make the kebabs low fat and healthy.
