Very flavoursome and honestly the best homemade kebabs I have ever had! DH, DD (toddler) and I like these. I used lean ground beef but I suggest using regular as they were a little dry and had trouble staying on the skewers. I have done them in the frying pan with some butter! I did not use any cayenne pepper as we dont like hot spicy. I used Ras El Hanout - Moroccan Spice Mix. I do add a bit more fresh cilantro to the meat mixture. I serve them with additional fresh cilantro, tomato slices sprinkled with sea salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon, helmans olive oil mayonnaise (soy free) (another time I served with hummus but still prefer mayonnaise) and lettuce. I used a wheat free flat bread to wrap them all up in. The time I pan fried we had them with rice. I have also done these in an oven on broil. I will make these again. Originally made for Ramadan Tag.
actually the most delicious things! packed with flavour. everyone adored them. wrote the recipe out and will use again :D
These were good, but nothing special. It was hard to get them to stay on the skewer, so I handled the meat (mixture) a lot to hopefully help with that. Well, it did not work, and it made it dry. With that aside, the taste was similar to a Moroccan meatball recipe I tried before, which we felt the same about. The spice combination is just odd, we are sure of that now. We like them separately, but not like this. I also used the Ras el Hanout recipe from this site by Nasseh, which we like. Some may like these though.
Delicious! I have a jar of coriander but for the life of me, I could not find it. So, I used some Seven Spice and adjusted my other seasonings as needed. I did double both the amount of the Seven Spice and the salt. I just pan fried them as meatballs and served them with oven-roasted mushrooms, peppers and onion skewers. Also, made some tzatziki to serve on the side. This will be a recipe that I use again and again.
The nicest kofta recipe I have tried so far. I used a full teaspoon middle eastern spice and 1 teaspoon extra salt. I also added 2 tablespoons tomato paste, 1 teaspoon garam masala, some fresh mint, 1 tablespoon dried oregano and I only used fresh parsley (as I didn't have any coriander). I blended it in my blender and fried it on the fry pan with oil.
Great idea! We enjoyed
Very nice version. I liked that it's kicked up a notch on the spice how we like it. I didn't need to use any Harissa. Thank You made for Ramadan Tag 2011
This is a great, flavorful dish! I left out the onions, otherwise made just as specified, using your Ras El Hanout - Moroccan Spice Mix. Served with flatbread and loved the rich warm flavor of the meat - thanks for sharing this recipe!
My whole family loved the flavor and ate heartily. I also made burgers instead of kebabs, and used your ras el hanout recipe to make the mix for this. We ate it with flatbreads, hummus, and a marinated veggie chopped salad. Thanks, Nasseh!
My kitchen smelled heavenly last evening. The picture from Sandi (From CA) is what caught my eye so I decided I would make burgers out of this as well. Topped with mayo, lettuce, tomato, and onion on a wheat roll. Fabulous!
