    eatrealfood's Note:

    These kebabs are made exceptionally silken and smooth by being made fine in a blender, and then kneaded in a dough-like fashion. The result is a smooth, soft, melt-in-the-mouth pattie.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    patties

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 slices white bread, crumbs of
    • 1 large egg white
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin (freshly roasted is best)
    • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    Patties

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a large pan and add all the ingredients listed for the patties.
    2. 2
      At first, stir on high heat for 4-5 minutes, reduce to medium heat, and continue to cook about 30-40 minutes until the ground lamb is cooked.
    3. 3
      Then, increase heat and let the meat dehydrate till totally dry and crumbly - you want to remove as much moisture as possible, while at the same time taking care to stir so that the lamb does not burn.
    4. 4
      Let cool a bit, remove the whole spices if you like, and then add the breadcrumbs, ground coriander and cumin and egg white.
    5. 5
      Blend in a food processor till fine.
    6. 6
      Put into a bowl and chill for 2 hrs or overnight (if left in fridge overnight, allow to come to room temperature first).
    7. 7
      Knead mixture for at least 5-7 minutes, as if you were working a dough - the more you do this the softer the patty will be.
    8. 8
      Shape the patties into balls and flatten.
    9. 9
      Heat oil on moderate setting, add cook patties on one side undisturbed for at least 3-4 minutes before flipping over, and continue to cook until it crisps up on the outside.

      I very rarely cook but after having sheesh kebab in Egypt I sought a similar dish. This was easy to cook and the result was delicious. I substituted the "real" bread for gluten-free as I am coeliac and I didn't use cloves as we didn't have any - but all turned out very well. Even I was impressed!

      I couldn't find any mace blades so I left them out, otherwise followed the instructions. I've never made anything like this before - but will from now on! These were amazingly good and disappeared like... eh, hot cakes. Very very soft, spicy and delicious. I'm so glad I decided to try this out.
