 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Lean ground beef
  • 1/2 c Dhal or dried split peas
  • 1 ts Cumin seed
  • 1 1 in cinnamon stick
  • 6 Whole cloves
  • 1 1 in ginger root, peeled
  • 8 Cloves garlic
  • 2 ts Chili powder
  • 1/2 ts Salt (optional)
  • 3 c Water
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 1/3 c Ciliantro, chopped
  • 3 Green chillies, chopped
  • 1/2 c Liquid egg substitute


Soak dhal (or dried peas) in water for 10 minutes, then drain. Put 3 cups
water in a large skillet, and boil the ground beef, dhal or peas, and next
7 ingredients approximately 45 minutes, or until all liquid evaporates.

When all of the liquid has evaporated, allow mixture to cool slightly. Add
liquid egg substitute. Then grind the meat mixture to a fine paste. This
can be done in a blender or food processor, the liquid egg substitute
providing the moisture.

After the mixture has been made into paste, add the chopped onion,
coriander leaves and chillies.

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, or spray with noncaloric spray to
prevent sticking. Measure 1/4-cup portions onto the cookie sheet and shape
them into patties.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until set. Remove carefully
from pan with spatula. Use a grill on a hot summer day!
