Inspired by my mother-in-law

2 pound of beef stew
3/4 cup channa daal
2 medium onions
8 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 inch square of ginger
2 tsp. white whole dried cumin
2 tsp. whole dried coriander
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 1/2 tsp. garam masala
2 green chili pepper
1/4 bunch of cilantro
1 egg beaten


Put beef stew and channa daal in a large pan.  Add 1 onion(quartered), garlic, ginger, cumin, whole dried coriander, salt, crushed red pepper(ground red pepper is fine), and pour 2 glasses of water.  Bring to boil and then cook on medium low heat.  When meat is tendered, then dry all the water, and let it cool.

Then grind the mixture in a food processor.  Then add garam masala, green chili pepper, and cilantro leaves, and chopped onion, and mix everything and taste first then add egg beaten.  Make patties-you can chop the onion(optional), green pepper, and cilantro in the mixture.  Make kababs and freeze them(each seperate) and fry them when you are ready to eat.  Enjoy!
