- 1/4 cup Bengal gram dal soaked for 2 hours
- 6 garlic pods
- 2 -inch ginger pieces
- 1/4 cup coriander leaves finely chopped
- 1/4 cup mint leaves finely chopped
- 1 tsp oil
- 2 tsp fennel seeds

- 2 cloves

Heat oil in a pan. Add minced mutton, gram dal, garlic, ginger, cardamom, peppercorns, dry red chilies, cloves, fennel seeds, coriander leaves, and mint.
Stir and cook over medium flame. Keep stirring the mutton until the moisture is completely absorbed.
Stir and cook it for about 15-20 minutes till the mutton is well-cooked. Check if it is cooked by pressing the dal and minced mutton.
Bring the mutton mixture to room temperature and add it to a blender and grind it to a fine, soft mixture.
Shift the mixture to a bowl and knead it for 2 minutes to make a soft dough.
Make a lemon-sized ball, gently press in your palm, make a round shape, and set it aside.
Add the oil to a pan and heat on low-medium flame, place the kebabs gently, roll it in breadcrumbs, and fry it for 2-3 minutes till the kebabs turn golden-brown in color.
Transfer on a clean paper towel plate to soak the oil. Serve it with your favorite sauces or a coriander-mint chutney!
- You can refrigerate the dough for 1-2 hours so it binds well for frying.
- You can also dip the patties in whisked eggs so that it does not crack or fall apart while frying.
- Cook the minced mutton for 20 minutes stirring continuously so that it browns quickly and does not stick to the pan.
