Mini Mediterranean Kebabs - by Chef Ahmed

This is a great recipe to make in Ramadan and eat before your fast they’re filling and will get you through the day. The first time my mom made these mini kebabs I loved them and wanted to learn to make them myself. They’re super easy to make, just follow the steps below!




  • 1.5 lbs Veal

  • 1 cup Bread Crumbs

  • 2 Eggs

  • 2 cloves Fresh Garlic

  • ½ cup chopped Coriander

  • 1 tbsp Red Pepper Flakes

  • 1 tbsp Sea Salt

  1. In a food processor, mix everything but the veal.

  2. Once all the ingredients are well-blended, add the ground veal and mix through.

  3. Take out approximately ¼ cup of the mixture and form into kebabs. Place them on a baking tray.

  4. Turn oven on to broil.

  5. Once all the mixture is done, place kebabs in the oven. Cook for 5 minutes per side.
