  • 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
Method:
  • Heat up a pan and take 2 tsp ghee in it. Now add 2 nos. bayleaves, 1 no. solid mace, 2 nos. black cardamom, 4-5 nos. cloves, 5-6 nos. peppercorn and a handful 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 slitted green chillies, handful 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 into this.
  • Then cook these ingredients in the water till it dries out and keep stirring. When the cooking is done, we let it cool down and take out the solid spices like the bayleaves, 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 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.
