    Please email me and I can get you and her in touch and she can work with you in getting the recipies published :)

  6. Thank you for the amazing recipes! I was wondering if you could provide the nutritional facts with each recipe as it would be very beneficial :) thanks again!

    • Hi!

      You are welcome, given that I have to calculate each the nutritional content of each ingredient and I don’t really know how accurate that method would be, I am hesitant to continue with providing nutritional facts.

      If you are on a strict diet, you can always modify the amount of oil/sugar used and don’t try the fried foods…lol, although they are pretty tasty!

      Maybe in the future when I figure out a better way, I will post that information.

  7. Hi, i was wondering if you have the ingredients list for making Kantlo powder at home, my mother used to grind 32 ingredients to make the Kantlo powder, unfortunately she could not remember the ingredients list.

    • Salams!

      Here is the kebab recipe:

      for tsp I use the actual tsp measuring spoon.

      Oven baked kebabs
      2 lbs extra lean beef mince meat
      1 large onion
      1 small bunch cilantro (leaves only)
      1-2 green chillies (optional)
      1 Tbsp lemon juice
      2 tsp garlic paste
      1 tsp ginger paste
      2 tsp cumin powder
      1 tsp black pepper powder
      1 tsp paprika
      1/4 tsp turmeric
      2 tsp salt or to taste
      1/2 tsp chili powder or to taste
      heavy pinch cinnamon powder or garam masala
      1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
      1 egg, lightly beaten
      1 T oil

      In a fine hole colander, wash the meat with as little water as possible. Leave the meat in the colander with a large bowl on the meat to squeeze out the excess moisture.

      In a food processor add the onions and blend to a puree. Put the onion puree in a sieve and let it drain on its own for a couple minutes (don’t squeeze).

      In the food processor, add back the onions, cilantro, chilies, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, powder spices, salt, oil. Mix till combined and everything is uniform texture.

      If your food processor is large, add the meat with the pureed onion + spice mix. Blend till combined and smooth. Add egg, pulse. Add bread, pulse.

      If your food processor is not large, in a bowl knead the meat with the pureed onion + spice mix.. Add egg and bread crumbs.

      (If you have time, marinate the meat without the egg and bread for a while in the fridge. Then add the egg and bread and mix.)

      Foil line deep pans/pyrex trays (since the kebabs release water). Heavily grease the trays with oil, abt 4-6 tbsp per tray.

      Wet hands with water and form the kebabs/patties. If they are too hard to form, because of excess water, place in colander again. Or add breadcrumbs.

      Bake in a preheated oven at 400F for 12-15 min. Broil for 3-5 min for color. Dont overcook. Since oil does jump from the trays, ensure it it not too close to the broiler.

      These freeze well. If you want to serve as a side, you can fry these to get a nice color.

      Hope the instructions are ok..:)
