I have been wanting to try my hand at the muthi kebabs that are often served with a Mixed Grill at Indian restaurants. So I tinkered around with my Garam Masala spice blend and a few other common Indian seasonings and grilled the final result. I managed to get my recipe pretty darn close to the taste I’m so familiar with. This has since become my go-to Indian kebab recipe. I like to serve these with various grilled vegetables, usually including onions, but sometimes with grilled tomatoes or grilled yellow squash. Also pictured are dry-griddled Mission Carb Balance whole wheat flour tortillas (3 net carbs per tortilla) for a very similar taste to Indian whole wheat chapatis. 🙂
These kebabs can be made with either beef or lamb. And although you can skillet cook or broil them indoors, grilling them over charcoal will achieve a flavor so similar to those done in a tandoori oven that once you’ve done them that way, you’ll not want them any other way. Of that I am certain! I have tried to mold these on skewers before, but I have never had much luck with that. Gravity kicks in and mine drop off the skewer before I can even get the skewer to the grill, so we just do them in little patties instead. 🙂 This recipe is Atkins Induction friendly and is also suitable for Keto, Primal and Paleo.

24 oz. ground beef or lamb (not too lean, or add some fat)
4 oz. onion, minced fine
2-3 T. cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped fine
½ tsp. ginger root, minced
1 tsp. Garam Masala
¼ tsp. turmeric
¼ tsp. salt
1 small egg, beaten
Dash black pepper and cayenne pepper
DIRECTIONS: I have a food processor, so I throw all the ingredients in and process until all veggies are minced fine and blended well into the smooth meat. Form into 8 equal patties. I actually weigh mine and make them 3 oz. raw mixture for each patty. Prepare charcoal fire and grill over hot coals for about 10 minutes on a side (will vary depending on how hot your fire is and how far the meat is from the coals). I like to serve these kebabs with my Indian Creamed Spinach , assorted grilled veggies or my Roasted Shawarma Vegetables . Mmmmm. Good Eats!
