I was debating whether or not to post this recipe because it uses packets of premixed masalas as opposed to making a blend of spices on my own. I decided to post it though because it's a recipe that I've been using for about 7 years now and I love making these and freezing them to keep handy for unexpected guests. All you have to do is pop a patty out of the freezer, coat in beaten eggs and shallow fry. They taste great served with tamarind chutney and mint chutney.
I'm sorry that I don't have a picture of the finished- fried pattie but every time I make them they end up getting eaten before I rememebr to take a photo.
Mix the boiled potatoes with the cooked meat.
Form into same-sized patties which can then be frozen at this stage.
1 kg boneless meat (beef or lamb)
1 kg potatoes
1 packet of bihari kebab masala
2 tbsp of chapli kebab masala
1 tsp of crushed black peper
This is a rich flavorful Moroccan soup made with chicken, lamb, lentils, and a number of fresh herbs and spices. This is commonly eaten in Ramadan and is also called Ramadan Soup. It's nice and hearty and is great for the weather that we are getting these days. You can actually make this soup vegetarian as well by omitting the meat all together and it's still very flavorful.

I love to eat! I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past few years. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
