MADRAS GROUND LAMB SKEWERS

MADRAS GROUND LAMB SKEWERS

Serves 4

  • 1 lb ground lamb (or ground beef)
  • ¾ cup Maya Kaimal Madras Curry plus more as needed
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

 

  • Pre-heat grill to medium-high.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground lamb with 3/4 cup Madras Curry, bread crumbs, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Divide the meat mixture into 16 balls. Roll each ball into a 3-inch long by 1-inch wide tube. Slide a soaked bamboo skewer lengthwise through each tube. Compress meat with your hand to maintain tube shape and make sure meat is secure to skewer.
  • Oil grill grates. Place meat skewers across the grill grates and cook, without moving, for about 5 minutes. The meat will release easier when it’s had a chance to char a bit. Gently lift and turn each skewer using a thin metal spatula. We do not recommend turning with tongs as they can tear these tender meats.
  • Baste ground lamb skewers with additional Madras Curry. Continue grilling, turning and basting until meat is cooked through, about 4 more minutes.
  • Serve skewers hot garnished with fresh cilantro and Maya’s Raita and Cucumber Tomato Salad on the side. Of course, warmed naan or pita bread will also be good.
