When I saw a post for Chicken Chapli Kabab posted on my friend's facebook page I was so impressed by the picture that I wanted to try it out instantly. I did not take a look at all the ingredients required as I saw just the first ingredient which is minced chicken and decided to give it a try as I had that handy. 

So When I defrosted the minced chicken and with enthusiasm went back to the page to pick the remaining ingredients I went through a Oh-No moment. I did not have any of the key ingredients other than the minced chicken.

I wanted to still make the chapli kabab without having to make a trip to the supermarket so decided to make it with whatever I could substitute that I had available. The resulting Chapli Kabab was delicious and we enjoyed it. Hence I name it Chapli Kabab - YesCook Style. 

Here is the recipe..

Ingredients :

Chicken Mince - 250 grams
Onion - 1 medium finely chopped (Original recipe called for spring onions)
Tomato - 1 small finely chopped (Original recipe called for Roma Tomato)
Garlic - 1 Tablespoon Grated
Ginger - 1 Tablespoon finely chopped
Green Chilli - 1 finely chopped or as per spice
Coriander Leaves - 2 Tablespoons finely chopped (Original recipe called for Cilantro)
Salt to Taste
Coriander Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon (Original Recipe called for roasted and crushed coriander seeds)
Gram Flour / Besan - 2 Teaspoons 
Oil for shallow frying
Fresh Cream - 1 Tablespoon (I added additionally)
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon (I added additionally)

Method :
1. Add all the ingredients except the oil in a mixing bowl.
2. Mix well to combine. 
3. Divide the mixture into small balls. Use damp hands if it gets difficult to divide the mixture into balls.
4. Place the balls in a plate and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes.
5. Heal oil in a pan for shallow frying. 
6. Flatten each of the kabab ball mixture with damp hands as thin as you can. 
7. Shallow fry in the oil on both sides till each side turns golden. 
8. Remove onto plate lined with absorbent towels.
9. Fry the remaining kababs in the same way.
10. Fry very carefully as the kababs tend to break easily.

Enjoy Chapli Kabab.
