For Cooking:

  • Ghee or oil for shallow frying
  • Skewers for grilling (optional)


  1. Prepare the Meat Mixture:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the minced lamb meat with raw papaya paste, ginger-garlic paste, gram flour, and all the ground spices.
    • Add fried onions, clarified butter (ghee), and salt to the mixture.
    • Mix the ingredients thoroughly until well combined, ensuring that the meat is evenly coated with the spices and other ingredients.
    • Cover the bowl and let the meat mixture marinate for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight in the refrigerator. Marination helps in enhancing the flavors and tenderizing the meat.
  2. Shape the Kebabs:
    • Once the marination is complete, take out the meat mixture from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature.
    • Divide the mixture into small lemon-sized portions and shape them into round patties or flat discs using your hands. Ensure that the kebabs are compact and free of any cracks.
    • If using skewers, you can also thread the meat mixture onto skewers to form kebabs.
  3. Cooking the Kebabs:
    • Heat ghee or oil in a non-stick pan or a grilling pan over medium heat.
    • Once the oil is hot, carefully place the shaped kebabs in the pan, ensuring they are not overcrowded.
    • Shallow fry the kebabs on both sides until they are golden brown and cooked through. Alternatively, you can grill the kebabs for a smoky flavor.
    • Once cooked, remove the kebabs from the pan and place them on a serving platter lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  4. Serve Hot:
    • Garnish the Galouti Kebabs with freshly chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves.
    • Serve the kebabs hot with mint chutney, onion rings, and lemon wedges on the side.
    • Enjoy the succulent and flavorful Galouti Kebabs as an appetizer or a main course dish, accompanied by naan bread or roomali roti.
