We cooked Beef “Ribbon” Kebabs (Pasanda Kabab) from Madhur Jaffrey.
Steak is cut into thin strips or pasanda, threaded on skewers and barbecued. For simplicity we just cubed some good quality rump steak. but first we marinated it in a blended mixture of browned onions, chopped onions, yoghurt, lemon juice, mustard oil, almonds, ginger, garlic, salt, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, mace and coriander.
The marinated steak was then grilled on skewers on the barbecue.
We served the meat with grilled zucchini with cumin and pulao rice.
We paired the kebabs with a bottle of Felix Swan Hill Victoria Shiraz-Sagrantino 2013, an Australian red from the Wine Society.
We detected black fruits on the nose and this followed through to the palate. There was a slight sweetness, flavours of black cherries and a full-flavoured spicy finish. A very good match with the beef kebabs.
