The spices in this kebab blend are reminiscent of Mediterranean/Middle Eastern flavors. It is a unique blend of Cinnamon, cardamom and other spices. The aromatic notes from the sweet spices balance the fat from the meat and compliment the lemon juice and chilies added in the recipe. This is a child-friendly blend.
1 package (1 lb) of ground turkey, lamb or chicken
Onions: 1 large or 2 small, diced
Cilantro: A few sprigs
Green chili: 1
A pinch of turmeric — naturally antiseptic!
Ground ginger: 2 tsp
Juice of half a lemon or lime
Egg: 1, beaten (optional)
Kebab spice blend from Aromatic Spice Blends: 5 tsp
If you have a fiery taste, you can add red chili powder or increase the number of green chilies.
Salt to taste
Gently mix together all ingredients. Sauté in hot olive oil or any oil of choice on both sides until they turn golden brown.
Enjoy with mango salsa or tomato/onion/cucumber salsa; accompanied by hot nans, sesame bread or just on their own wrapped in lettuce!
