Chapli kabab with buffalo meat
Eating buffalo (American Bison) meat is an acquired taste. You need to get used to the strong meatiness that comes with it. But if you are used to eating beef then it is ok... According to Amearican Heart Association, it is better than eating beef since they are much more lean than the stall fed cows. My friend Chandra commented on Facebook that if the European settlers tamed buffaloes for their source of meat instead of importing cows from Europe, North American landscape would not have been such an ecological disaster! Anyway, I thought of spicing up my buffalo burger that I bought from Trader Joes few nights ago. I used Chaplli kabab masala powder from Shan (a Pakistani spice mix company) which one can get in any Indian grocery stores in the USA and used onion, garlic, ginger, tomatoes, green chillies and coriander leaves(cilantro)to make chapli kabab. It came out well, I must say....
Buffalo meat ground: 2lb
Shan Chapli kabab masala: 4 tbsp
Onion: red, 1/2 cup minced
Garlic: 2 cloves minced
ginger: 1/2 tsp minced
tomato: i chopped well
green chilli: 1 or 2 nicley minced
Cilantro (coriander leaves) some
oil: to fry
1 Egg to mix with the mixture
Add all of these together and mix well. In a pan fry them well. Use burger buns, mayo, tomato slices, letuce leaves to serve.
