Tantalize your taste buds this Eidul Azha with this quick and easy recipe for succulent kebabs with a Persian flavour.

Chelo kebabs are the national dish of Iran and when served fresh off the stove with buttered rice and salad, they can liven up even the dullest of menus. Add to this a large jug of cold lassi and you have the perfect menu for your big Eid gathering. I guarantee your guests will be blown away.

Ingredients:

Mutton or beef (minced) ½ kg

Egg 1

Green chillies 3 — 4

Cumin powder 1 tsp

Ginger paste

Salt (to taste)

Red chilli powder (optional) 1 tsp

Slice of bread (crushed) 1

Method 

•  Set the egg aside to be used later.

•  Add all the remaining ingredients in an electric food processor and mix thoroughly to form a paste.

•  Add the egg to the paste and mix it in with a wooden spoon.

•  Using your hands, shape the meat into long rolls as shown in the picture.

•  Fry the kebabs in hot oil and serve with buttered rice and grilled tomatoes.
