We are all familiar with onion bhajis, meat samosas and poppadoms; but here Gordon Ramsay shows you how to prepare a quick and impressive Indian starter with equal amounts of mince for each shami kebab
Shami kebabs are little mince patties, packed full of flavour. Almost a mini Indian hamburger.
Roughly slice 1 small red onion and de-seed and chop a red chilli. Place both in a food processor.
Next add a pinch of ground cloves, 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder, ½ tablespoon of pink peppercorns and fennel seeds, and a small bunch of mint to the food processor; season with a little salt and blend.
Now take the onion spice mixture and mix into the lamb mince.
To allow the lamb to bind together crack one egg yolk into the mixture. Mix well. The mixture should become a little sticky.
