Indian cookery episode 7, George Lucas sucks

The course was billed as Indian cookery but the guy teaching us isn’t Indian, he’s Pakistani (well he’s British, but you know what I mean). The food we cook isn’t either Indian or Pakistani really, it’s like a honkey bastardized asian cuisine (Wasim put it a lot more delicately than that when explaining to me :)

Anyway, I’m well behind in my write-ups. This week we made Seekh kebab, Nan and Chicken Jalfrezi. Ingredients and method follow:

Seekh kebab

  • 300 grams minced lamb
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp pomegranate powder (Anardana)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tsp ground coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cumin seeds
  • 1tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1/2 capsicum (finely chopped)
  • Handful danya (finely chopped) (danya == coriander)
  • 1 tsp garlic puree
  • 1 tsp ginger puree
  • 1/2 green chili
  • 1 egg


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Shape onto skewers and grill

This sounds much easier than it actually is. To get it to stick to the skewer, the ingredients need to have the right consistency. We used horrible cheap minced lamb which seemed to have a lot of water in it, which did not help. I added flour, but then it just tasted of flour. I wasn’t impressed with my results really.

What does this recipe have to do with George Lucas? (although I do agree that he sucks)
