  2. Let cook till the water is fully absorbed and meat is tender. Then grind the meat into a smooth paste.
  3. Next, combine cumin seeds, cardamoms, cinnamon, ginger, garlic, peppercorns, red chillies and chickpeas. Grind all these together to form a fine paste.
  4. Put the meat paste and the spice paste together into a large bowl. Mix both these pastes well together.
  5. Next, put in the eggs and stir well again. Now make a smooth dough of this kebab mixture.
  6. Finally, put in the chopped green chillies and onion. Once again, knead the dough so that these ingredients blend well together.
  7. Using the palm of your hands, shape the dough into round and flattened balls. Keep aside.
  8. Heat ghee as required in a kadhai/pan and deep fry these kababs till they turn golden brown in colour.
  9. Serve hot along with your favourite chutney.
