Instructions: 

I love to have pictures of my ingredients upfront for my readers to comprehend easily. Sometimes people don’t even have to read the recipes when they see great talking images. I intend to do the same here and I definitely feel good about it. This is one authentic Hyderabadi cuisine which is pretty much same as patties and they comprise of crushed meat and grams or lentils.

Soak Bengal grams overnight or at least for 2 hours

The good part about this recipe is that you do not need to chop anything at all :). It makes things easy sometimes, isn’t it ?

In a frying pan put 1 tablespoon of oil and roast the chilies for 2-3 mins in medium heat.

Add caraway seed, coriander, black pepper corn, cinnamon stick, black cardamom,green cardamom and cloves.

Fry them for another 1 min.

Add minced mutton and soaked Bengal gram, ginger, garlic ,salt and cook them at medium high heat.

Cook till the grams are done. It might take around 10 minutes.

Turn  off the heat and let the mutton kebab mixture cool down for 10 minutes.

In a food processor, put grinded fry onions ,mints, coriander and mutton kebab mixture together and blend them well.

You can mix them very fine or little coarser.

I keep them little coarser.


Roll the mutton mix into 2 1/2 -3 inches balls .

Press them slowly to form a patties shape.  

Break the eggs with pinch of salt and mix them well with a fork.


Take a frying pan put 2 tablespoons of oil and heat up in medium to high heat .

Now dip the kebab patties into the eggs mixture and shallow fry them till golden brown.

This procedure might take around 5 mins.

Flip aside and cook them till golden brown. This process might take 3-4 minutes.

Now your mutton kebab is ready.

Serve  them with onion chaat salad.
