Make Succulent and Juicy Mutton Galouti Kebabs at Home
Take a bowl and add the minced mutton to it. Then add lemon juice, papaya paste, ghee and salt. Give it a mix and let it rest for 10 minutes. In the meantime, take a blender and add chopped onions, ginger-garlic paste, gram four, mint leaves, cumin powder, coriander powder, black pepper powder and garam masala. Blend it into a smooth paste. Add this paste to the minced mutton and mix it well. Cover the mutton with a lid and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Take the bowl from the refrigerator. Place the minced meat on a clean surface and knead it slowly. Once the mixture is soft, shape it into round patties.
Take a pan and glaze it with oil. Add the patties in the pan and shallow fry each side on low flame for 10 minutes. Serve hot with chutney.
If required, you can also add 1 egg for more binding.
