Step by step process of making Ugandan Beef Kebabs

Seasoning the lean minced beef

Place the minced beef in a large and transparent dish bowl then add salt to taste.

Next add the powdered spices like cumin, black pepper, paprika, and ginger powders to the lean minced beef in the bowel.

Thereafter add finely chopped ingredients in your recipe; add the coriander leaves, onions, carrots, and garlic to the minced beef in the bowel.

Break the egg into a small bowl, whisk it a bit and then add it to your minced beef in the bowel as well.

Getting the minced beef kebab ready

Start mixing the ingredients in the bowel together as you add in the bread crumbs and the wheat flour. Use the palms of your hands to knead the dough lightly. Don’t use force and overwork the mixture to avoid raising the temperature.   Use a little vegetable oil to remove any sticky dough on the palm of your hands.

Add the chili powder to the minced beef and mix well using your hands.

Making the Ugandan minced beef kebab rolls

Sprinkle some maize flour onto a plain surface. Get the minced beef dough from the bowel and place it on the floured surface.

Make small-sized round balls from the minced beef mixture and place them on the floured surface.

Using maize flour roll out kebabs from the plain surface. Roll out all the balls systematically.

Deep Frying the egg rolls

Break the 3 eggs into a bowl and whisk them properly.

Place a deep frying pan on a high source of heat.  Pour in the vegetable cooking oil.  To check if the cooking oil is ready drop it in a small piece of kebab mixture if it sizzles immediately then the oil is ready for deep frying.

Dip the Kebabs into the eggs in a bowl and drop them in the oil. Place a few kebabs at a time into the frying pan. Avoid overcrowding the pan to maintain the temperature of the oil and to let them cook evenly.

Tip. For your kebabs to cook evenly make sure that they are completely dipped and covered by cooking oil.

After 3 -5 minutes your kebabs will be ready. Remove them from the oil and set them aside to cool. Continue with the rest of the kebabs as the first batch cools down.

When the kebabs have cooled down, dip them in eggs for a second time and deep fry them for a second time. This coating will be better and thicker and much better.

Remove the ready kebabs from oil and place them on a tray with paper serviettes to drain any excess oil within.

Serve hot or cold with your favorite drink
