How To Make Mutton Galawati Kabab At Home
Preparation Time: 1 hour
Mutton- 750 gms, minced thrice from lean gol boti
Raw papaya- 6 tbsp, ground to a paste
Desi ghee- 2 tbsp
Dhania (coriander) seeds- 1 tsp
Jeera (cumin) seeds- 1 tsp
Hari elaichi (green cardamom)- 4 pods
Badi elaichi (black cardamom)- 1 pod
Laal Mirch (red chili)- 10 pieces, whole
Dalchini (cinnamon) powder- 1 tsp
Javitri (mace)- ½ tsp
Laung (cloves)- 6 cloves
Jaiphal (nutmeg)- 2 pieces
Besan (gram flour)- 9 tbsp, roasted
Salt- to taste
Charcoal- 2 pieces
Grind the raw papaya into a fine paste.
Saute the coriander and cumin seeds, green cardamom, black cardamom, red chilies, cinnamon, mace, nutmeg, and 4 cloves in a pan on a low flame for about 5 minutes. Then grind it into a fine paste. Mix in the minced mutton, salt, and raw papaya paste. Keep it aside to marinate for 1 hour.
Mix the gram flour and the rest of the ingredients except the 2 cloves, the ghee, and the charcoal. Put the mixture in a large pan. Then put the burning charcoal, 2 cloves, and a tsp of ghee in a small steel bowl and place it in the center of the large pan. Cover the pan with a heavy lid for the smoking process and let it smoke for 30 minutes.
Divide this mixture into 12 equal portions and roll into a ball. Then using the palms of your hands, press it into flat patties about half an inch in thickness.
Heat a frying pan on a low flame. Add the ghee and individually place the patties in it and shallow-fry them on both sides for 4 minutes each. Serve hot with onion rings.
