Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Lightly grease a broiling pan.

  • Mix together the lamb, garlic, chili peppers, onion, coriander, yogurt, turmeric, lemon juice, and salt with your hands until well mixed. Roll the mixture into 15 meatballs. Thread 3 meatballs onto each skewer, separating with chunks of red bell pepper. Place onto the prepared broiling pan.

  • Broil for 5 minutes, then turn the skewers over, and continue broiling until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes more.

Delicious! Only changes I had were: didn't have any onion so added some green onion w/ plain yogurt on top of finished meal as garnish; and didn't have Thai chili peppers so used 2 serrano peppers instead (WARNING: seed them!) So yummy. Read More

I used ground beef because lamb is just too expensive. I like the flavours but the meatballs just did not stay together. As soon as I put the skewers under the broiler some of the meatballs started to fall off the skewers. When that happened I took them out and cooked them on stove top instead. That was a little disappointing... Read More

Very tasty the salt amount is perfect. My kebab meatballs did not hold together at all even though I added an egg to the mix. Adjustments:nd 1/2 a large sweet onion. 2 teaspons ground coriander instead of 2 T seeds. This just seemed like a typo to me Didn't have yogurt wanted to use up Read More

As I was not prepared to make this dish and just happened to spontaneously try it I did not have many ingredients. I used grounded pork instead of lamb Had not plain yogurt so I used vanilla favored. No coriander seeds so I used celery seeds Also I had no turmeric so I used worcester sauce instead. I have to say that it did turn out really well. very tasty! I can't wait to try it with the actual ingredients. Read More

Fabulous! I follwed the ingredients exactly except after reading the reviews I added 1/2 of bread crumbs and one egg because the meatballs felt a little loose on the skewers. Great dish. I paired it with cinnamon basmati rice. Delish!! Read More

Loved this recipe followed it to the tee. Meatballs don't hold together well but as I am avoiding wheat decided to just go with it. They did ok. I added green peppers mushrooms and sweet potato to the skewers and tossed them with a little olive oil and the same spices as the meatballs turned out delicious. Full meal without the rice.

this came out very flavorful and bold.. i had to modify the recipe based on what we had on hand.. subbing ground turkey (20 oz package) for the 1lb lamb.. 1 1/2 jalapenos.. leaving the seeds/vein in the 1/2 jalapeno.. i only had 1/4 of an onion so i added 1/2 tsp of onion powder.. i began crushing 1 tbsp of coriander seeds and it just looked like too much so followed cookingpanub's lead of just using 2 tsp of it ground.. i didn't have any yogurt but think it might have given that bit of sour flavor i was looking for that the lemon didn't really provide.. i added 1/4 tsp of salt to accomodate for the extra 4 oz of meat but i felt like it still needed more salt at the end.. these were good as burgers with some mayo lettuce tomato and a sprinkle of salt.. ty for the recipe Read More
