  1. In a large bowl, mix ground lamb, onions, mint, cilantro, ginger paste, and chile paste. Season with cumin, coriander, paprika, cayenne, and salt. Cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Mold handfuls of the lamb mixture, about 1 cup, to form sausages around skewers. Make sure the meat is spread to an even thickness. Refrigerate until you are ready to grill.
  3. Preheat grill for high heat.
  4. Brush grate liberally with oil, and arrange kabobs on grill. Cook for 10 minutes, or until well done, turning as needed to brown evenly.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I used the food processor to chop the onion and cilantro and had no problems with it falling apart. Only had dried mint so used 1 tbsp. of that. I waited a few hours and took a small portion o...

I did something a bit different: I used turkey instead of lamb. And I don't use the two pastes (since I don't have them), but add a bit of ginger powder instead. My adjusted version has alway...
