  1. Heat a stockpot over medium heat; add ground beef. Stir in garlic paste, ginger paste, coriander, cumin, turmeric, garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon ground red chile, and salt to taste. Add water and dal; simmer until meat is fully cooked and all water has evaporated, 30 to 35 minutes.
  2. Blend beef and dal mixture together using an immersion blender in the stockpot. Add 1/2 cup cilantro; blend to combine. Roll spoonfuls of beef and dal mixture into into walnut-sized balls; shape into smooth flat patties.
  3. Whisk eggs, 1 tablespoon cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon ground red chile, and salt to taste together in a bowl. Place bread crumbs on a plate. Dip each patty into egg mixture, then roll in bread crumbs.
  4. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry patties in a single layer until golden brown and crisp, 2 to 4 minutes per side.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If the mixture is not dry enough, patties will fall apart when frying. Add 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour to the beef and dal mixture before frying, if needed.
  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Made as written and my rating for taste is a 5. My rating for execution is a 2. These start out frying up nicely but before it is even time to flip they completely fell apart into one big crumb...
