Ingredient list

Ingredients for Servings

1lbground beef
0,75cuponions, finely chopped
1tspginger root, minced
1tspcoriander, ground
0,50tspjalapeno pepper, minced
0,50cupcoriander or mint leaves, chopped
-vegetable oil


Place the ground beef in a bowl with the onion, ginger, cumin, ground coriander, jalapeno, salt, and

yogurt. Mix with a spoon, spatula or your hands. To blend the seasonings and to help the meat hold

together when cooking, mix until a smooth consistency is achieved. Mix in the chopped fresh coriander

leaves (or chopped fresh mint). Wet your hands and shape into 8 round or oval patties, using about .

cup of the mixture for each patty. Give the patties several firm squeezes to help them hold their shape,

and place on a lightly oiled plate until ready to fry.


Place a skillet over medium high heat and add about 2 tablespoons of oil. Place in as many patties that

will fit comfortably in the pan. If you like patties with a slightly crunchy exterior, leave the heat on

medium high. If you want a softer exterior, lower the heat to medium. Cook for about 5 to 6 minutes

on each side, depending on the level of heat. Serve warm with a vegetable dish, East Indian chapattis,

in a pita bread, or with a salad.


These patties can also be cooked under the broiler or on a barbeque. For an interesting variation,

squeeze the meat onto a metal skewer and barbeque like a kabob.

Supporting local, sustainable agriculture is so important to us and the OVFC makes it remarkably easy to do so. It’s wonderful that we have the chance to reconnect with the community that we know and love even though we’re no longer living right in the valley.  The Co-op is one of the things we miss most about Renfrew County, so I was more than delighted to learn that you were adding a pick-up location in Ottawa.
