2 nos. Bay leaves.

1 no. Mace.

2 nos. Black Cardamom.

4-5 nos. Cloves.

5-6 nos. Peppercorns.

Handful Cumin.

1/4 cup split Chick Peas.

1 cup diced Jack fruit.

2 nos. Green Chillies.

Handful long chopped Ginger.

1 tsp. chopped Garlic.

1 nos. finely chopped Onion.

1 tsp. Turmeric.

2 tsp. Coriander powder.

1 tsp. Red Chilli powder.

1 tsp. Cumin powder.

1 tsp. Yellow Chilli powder.

2 tsp. Roasted split Chick Peas powder.

Handful chopped Coriander leaves.

Handful chopped Green Chillies.

Handful chopped Ginger.

Handful finely chopped Onion.

1 pinch Mace powder.

2 pinch Cardamom powder.

Salt to taste.


Heat up a pan and take 2 tsp Ghee in it. Now add 2 nos. Bay leaves, 1 no. solid Mace, 2

nos. Black Cardamom, 4-5 nos. Cloves, 5-6 nos. Peppercorn and a handful of Cumin to the

Ghee. Cook these solid spices. Now add 1/4 cup split Chick Peas to it and roast

everything together. After it’s roasted add 1 cup of diced Jack fruit in it. Toss everything

together. Add 2 nos. of slit Green Chillies, a handful of long chopped Ginger, finely

chopped Garlic and 1 nos. finely chopped Onion and toss it. Now add 1 tsp. Turmeric, 2

tsp. Coriander powder, 1 tsp. Red Chilli powder, 1 tsp. Cumin powder and Salt to taste. If

possible or easily available add 1 tsp. Yellow Chilli powder also. Mix it up and add some

water to this. Then cook these ingredients in the water till it dries out and keeps stirring.

When the cooking is done we let it cool down and take out the solid spices like the

Bayleaf, Black Cardamom and Cloves and then we will grind it into a fine paste. The

mixture should not have too much moisture and should be very soft and fine. Add 2 tsp

roasted split Chick Peas powder, a handful of freshly chopped Coriander leaves, a handful

chopped Green Chillies, a handful chopped Ginger, a handful finely chopped Onions, a

pinch of Salt, a pinch of Mace powder and 2 pinch Cardamom powder. Now nicely mix

everything together. We take 1 tsp. Ghee in a fresh pan, make average sized flat round

discs from the mixture and shallow fry them in the Ghee. Handle the Kebabs very

delicately and turn them. Cook them nicely from both sides and serve them hot with

some Onion and Mint Chutney.
