Spicy Pork Kebabs

I put this recipe together as an accompaniment to some other Indian dishes I was preparing. It is fairly simple to make, and not really all that wildly exciting, but I thought my readers might like to see it and perhaps give it a try…

The Ingredients

  • 1/3 lb. ground Pork
  • ½ small Onion, minced
  • 1 fresh red Chili, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. Coriander seed
  • 1 Black Cardamom pod
  • 2 tbsp. dried Fenugreek leaf
  • 1 tbsp. minced Ginger
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. ground Black Pepper

The Method

Grind together the coriander seed and the seeds from the inside the black cardamom pod. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, stirring many times in the same direction until the mass becomes sticky. Set the bowl aside for an hour or so to let the flavors meld.

Divide the meat mixture into 6 equal portions and mold into sausage shapes around suitable skewers.

Grill, or panfry the kebabs in an oiled pan, until cooked through. Serve with a chutney, relish or dipping sauce of your choice.

  1. I’m a pork eater but I live with a non-pork eater. It makes yummy things like this tricky – I’ll have to wait till I have a couple of days home alone!! (Phillipa)

      1. I would think that these would be quite yummy with minced beef or lamb, too – so that your wife can enjoy them, too!

    1. Actually… I first had that when you made it. I have had when my wife made, when I made it… and in restaurants a few times… I just cannot get an appreciation for it, which is very odd because there is nothing in the typical recipe that I don’t like. It’s just the combination, I suppose…
