Hello there, friends. I have been away for a while, as I had been to my native for the marriage of my one and only lovely bro. I was totally cut off from the virtual social world, which made me enjoy each and every moment of the wonderful period of stay in UP. Still cherishing those lovely time spent there and missing it desperately.
Well, now as I am back to work, finding it hard to settle back to my normal routine. With my heart still dangling in UP, I could hardly get my mind to start thinking about what to prepare. The only good part now is Bangalore's wonderful weather which will definitely cause us to crave for something hot and spicy, specially during tea time. Now, to satisfy my craving, I had to make something quickly without much of fuss. This Kachchey Keemey Ke Kabab was the first thing that came to my mind as all the spice pastes were stocked in my freezer. I could get some fresh minced meat delivered by my local butcher and went on to make it, and they were ready in just 30mins of preparation time. The best part is while the mince meat is getting marinated with the spices, you can utilise the time for chopping of the other required ingredients so you save time there as well. Served them hot during tea time today along with hot ginger tea. This can be served not only for the tea time but also during breakfasts with hot crispy parathas, lachcha parathas, pooris and so on. It also fits in as an appetizer for a meal. This kabab would guarantee you to win accolades from guests once you serve them hot.
