These days I just whip up anything which takes minimal time.  I’m so busy organizing and getting things done around the house before my in-laws arrive.  My husband said I should not worry about cooking.  He will take care of it.  And NO of course he’s not going to cook.  I wonder if he knows how to fry an egg.   I’m sure he’s reading this and probably will try to prove to me that he does know how to fry an egg.  We are not suppose to ‘lol’ on blogs, right?

Anyhow, his solution is to get food from restaurants.  Well, he strongly believes it saves time.  And I agree if I don’t have to worry about dinner I can seriously get lots of stuff done.  I appreciate his point of view.  But what can a girl do when she can’t resist cooking.  You have to agree that home food tastes much better than takeout.  Oh GOD, I can’t believe I’m saying this, few years ago I would’ve disagreed.


Sooo to keep it easy peasy I served these kebabs with salad.  Next time, I will make tzatziki dip to go along with it. InshaAllah!

Thank you all for your patience, in reading my rant.

For the recipe: 

  • 1 lbs ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely grated
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste or 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 2-3 green chilies, chopped
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (I used panko)
  • add 2-3 tbsp of yogurt (if you are planning to bake them), optional

In a large bowl mix everything together.

Shape the kebabs.

Fry the kebabs in vegetable oil.

If you are going to bake them preheat your oven to 400 F.

Place the kebabs on greased tray.

Bake them for 10 minutes, turn the kebabs and bake for another 10 minutes.

  1. This is such a clear picture, I want to reach the kebabs and eat them.

    You cook pretty well. Don’t worry you will do pretty well while your in-laws are here:)
