Cooking Instructions

Mix together real well the following ingredients: beef, soya sauce, lemon juice, salt, ginger root, garlic, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, cayenne powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, onion, mint leaves, coriander/cilantro leaves, green chillies, coconut, black pepper and egg. (You can also blend them together to a coarse paste for a variation.)

Form into 16-18 cutlets that are of a diameter of around 2 inches when flattened or make them 3 inches across so get around 11-12.

Coat well with the bread crumbs or semolina. Heat a little oil in a pan (about a tbsp per round) to a medium high and shallow fry on low for around 5-6 minutes on each side or until they are well done. (Add a little more oil if needed).
