Behari Kebab has become quite a favourite and popular dish. Here s a recipe that you can make without barbeque and enjoy it anytime.

Required ingredients

  • 1 kg boneless meat cut in long thin strips
  • 3-4 medium sized onions
  • 1 cup curd
  • 3 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp red chilli powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 ½ tbsp raw papaya paste
  • Oil as required, about 2/3 cup

For Powder Masala

  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 star anise
  • Few strands of mace
  • ½ tsp nutmeg powder

Directions & How to

  • Finely slice the onions and fry till golden brown. Drain on paper towel and refrigerate immediately. Keep aside oil for later use.
  • For masala powder lightly roast all the spices and grind to a fine powder.
  • In a large glass bowl lightly beat the curd and mix in salt, chilli powder, ginger garlic paste, vinegar, fried onion lightly crushed with hands and powdered masala.
  • Now add the meat to this marinade and leave it for overnight. Add papaya paste 2-3 hours before cooking.
  • Now heat the same oil in a pressure cooker. Add the marinated meat and cook on high heat for 8-10 minutes and then for about 15-20 minutes on low heat or till the meat is completely cooked.
  • Let the pressure cool itself; dry out excess liquid if any.
  • Smoke with coal for that barbeque smell and flavour.  Enjoy with your choice of bread.
