Slipper Burgers / Chapli Kebab

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 235


1 pound ground lamb or beef
1/2 onion, medium sized, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 to 2 serrano chile, or other hot chiles, minced (for milder patties, seed the chiles)
1/4 cup cilantro, fresh, finely chopped
1 tablespoon ginger, fresh, grated
2 teaspoons coriander, ground or crushed seed
1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground, or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin, ground


1. Preheat the grill to high.

2. Combine the lamb or beef, onion, garlic, chiles, cilantro, ginger, coriander seeds, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, the cayenne, and cumin in a large bowl. Knead and squeeze the mixture with your hands until thoroughly blended, 3 to 4 minutes. To test the mixture for seasoning, sauté a small amount of it in a nonstick skillet until cooked through, then taste, adding salt or pepper to the remaining mixture as necessary the mixture should be highly seasoned.

3. Line a large plate with plastic wrap. Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal portions. Lightly wet your hands with cold water, then form each portion of meat into an oval patty about 5 inches long and 3/4 inch thick. Place each patty as it is made on the prepared plate. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

4. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate. Arrange the patties on the hot grate and grill, turning with a spatula, until nicely browned on both sides and cooked to taste, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium. Serve immediately.
