Did you know that the practice of cooking meat on stick dates back to prehistoric times? Since then, kebab has evolved into various forms, with different meats spiced with a whole lot of flavors. But one thing is for sure: this tasty delicacy stays on stickjust how it got so popular over the year.


Maya Kebab
Makes 4 servings


½ cup Japanese breadcrumbs (panko)

6 Tbsps Milk

2 White onions, finely minced

3 cloves Garlic, finely minced

2 inches Ginger, finely grated

1 kilo Ground beef or lamb

2 Tbsps Roughly chopped cilantro

1 ½ Tbsps Garam masala

3 Tbsps Dhana masala (coriander)

¾ Tbsp Cumin

Salt, to season



2 Finger chilies

2 Red onions, cut in half

6 Cherry tomatoes, cut in half

  1. Combine bread crumbs with milk and let it soak.
  2. Mix the milk-soaked bread crumbs with the rest of the ingredients in a bowl until they are evenly blended, without overworking the mixture. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Divide the kebab mixture evenly into eight balls and shape into 5-inch cylinders. Flatten and skewer with a barbecue stick or brochette.
  4. Grill on a pan or charcoal grill or bake in an oven for about 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked all the way through. When the kebabs are done, cook the finger chilies, red onions, and cherry tomatoes on the grill for about two minutes.
  5. Serve the kebabs with grilled vegetables, biryani rice, or flatbread.
