Beef & Potato Kebabs

A couple of days ago, my Mom gave me an interesting recipe that I tweaked based on ingredient availability and instinct. The results were pretty good, even if I say so myself.


  • 1 lb. beef stew (chopped into small chunks)
  • 1 large potato, boiled and mashed
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 cups water
  • 1/4 - 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp green onion (chopped)
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  • Mix together pepper, chilli powder, garlic powder, ginger powder, salt and soy sauce in a bowl.
  • In a pot, add beef, 3/4 of the chopped onion, spices and water. Boil the beef over a steady heat until beef is tender and water has dried out.
  • Mash the boiled beef. Throughly mix it with potato, egg, and green onion and the remaining onion.
  • Form kebabs from the mixture. I was able to get 8, your mileage may vary based on thickness and length of the kebabs.
  • Brush the kebabs with oil.

  • Heat the remaining oil in a skillet. Fry kebabs until light brown. I was able to fry 4 at a time, 5-7 minutes each.
  • Serve with parathas!
