SALAAMZ LADIES ,
Inspired by the Turkish kebab place in Fordsburg , church street . I decided why not make a Turkish supper using some of their good side dish ideas .
Lets get started with the kebab , this is my own kebab recipe .
1/2 kg beef mince
1/2 kg steak mince
1 tbsl crushed garlic
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp ground green chillies ( depends how strong you eat )
1 tsp Robertson chicken spice
2 tbls Robertson BBQ spice
1/4 tsp haldi
1 tsp dhania powder
1/2 black pepper
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
salt to taste
handful fresh dhania washed And chopped
In a bowl add both the mince and all the ingredients , now smear whole lot of oil on your hands and mix the mince nicely .
Make sure you mixed well .
Leave to marinate for 2 hours or over night .
IN THRE MEANTIME YOU CAN PREPARE THE SIDES !
Using your hand ( make sure you have oil on your hand before making every single ball ) make good size balls and on a sosatie stick , poke kebab it and start sticking it to stick ( I used ice cream sticks , as I didn’t have sosatie sticks ) .
in a pan with big chillies and oil steam for about 5 to 6 minutes .
Now out all the kebabs on a griller and grill for 5 to 7 minutes . ( optional ) you can just steam on stove in a pan with oil until done , if you do not have a griller .
Add all these kebabs back to the pan with oil .
Cook for another 5 minutes on slow just before serving .
TOMATO CHUTNEY :
3 to 4 tomatoes
salt to taste
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tbsl lemon juice
METHOD : Wash , cut and grate the tomatoes .
In a small pot add the grated tomatoes with salt And pepper . Cook for about 5 minutes
Before serving add balsamic vinegar and the bottom on bowl pour the tomatoes over and add the 1 tbsl lemon juice on top .
1/4 cucumber chopped
1 small tub plain Greek yogurt
mint leaves , fine jeeru , handful fresh dhania
Lay the chopped cucumber on a kitchen towel paper to soak out the water .
In a machine grind together handful mint , dhania fine jeeru and salt with 1/4 tub of yogurt .
Now add that mixture to a bowl with remaining yogurt and add cucumbers .
NOW TO SERVE :
In two small bowls or plates , plate your TZATZIKI and TOMATO CHUTNEY .
Cut a fresh lemon .
Cut PITA BREAD into halves .
layer the KEBABS and chillies .
