image image Warm melt in the mouth kababs with a characteristic silky texture, Galauti Kababs are usually made with mutton mince.

However, I decided to try develop a healthier version of the recipe…to absolutely outstanding results!
It has all the essential rich flavor elements preserved and matches the original in texture and appearance.
Besides it is also a wonderful solution for those who do not find mutton readily available! 🙂

So here goes the recipe…
Ingredients
image
500 gms chicken mince
1 heaped tbsp minced garlic
1 heaped tbsp minced ginger
4-5 green chillies minced
A fistful of fresh dhania, finely chopped
1/2 cup fried onions, crushed fine
2 tbsp roasted besan
1/4 cup roasted ground cashewnuts
1/4 cup ghee
1 heaped tsp red chilli pwdr
1 heaped tsp dhania pwdr (roasted and coarsely pounded)
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp ground Javitri
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 tsp chatmasala
A generous squeeze of lime.

Method:
Process chicken mince in your chopper till smooth and pale in color. You need to process it really smooth to break the fibers of the meet and tenderize it. Here my Vitamix came in very useful! On the right, you see the chicken mince as bought from the market, while on the left you see the processed mince, which acquires a pale color.

Add garlic, ginger, green chillies, crushed fried onions, ground spices, freshly chopped dhania, ground cashew nuts and ghee.
image
Also add the roasted besan and a final squeeze of lime (it helps add a fresh burst of citrus flavor)
image
Mix nicely using your hands…the kabab mixture will be slightly wet and sticky. At this stage do not add salt.
Refrigerate mix for 3-4 hours.
image
Take the chilled marinated mix out, add salt to taste.
image
Gently form into round patties.
image
You can wet your fingers with water to allow for easier handling.
image
Do not over handle mix at this point.
image
Cook patties on medium heat
image
till they acquire a nice golden crust.
image
Serve warm with soft dabe hue paranthe/roti, nimbu pyaz, hari chutney and pyaz tamatar ka raita.

PS: you can use the same recipe to make mutton Galauti kababs too!
