Spicy Nigerian Minced Meat Kebabs:
Tsiren Dakakken Nama

What's the big idea?

Similar to kofta kebabs in many ways, these make great starters served with a small green salad, or can be part of a buffet style meal, or even a main course served with rice and vegetbales. Simple to make, and can be cooked under a grill or on a barbecue, although I find grilling easier, especially if they start coming apart....

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • 1lb lean minced beef
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon crushed dried chillies (adjust to your taste)
  • 1 medium onion, very finely chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander (cilantro)
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint (this is more of a middle-eastern "kofta"-style flavouring - omit if you wish)
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg (adjust to your taste)
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil

What To Do

  • Place all the ingredients except the oil in a suitable bowl. Mix well
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour - longer does no harm
  • When ready to cook, pre-heat the grill or barbecue
  • Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions. Shape each portion into a sausage, approx 5cm long
  • Squeeze each "sausage" firmly to make it as compact as possible
  • Thread onto skewers, squeezing again to try to keep them compact/intact
  • Brush with vegetable oil and grill/barbecue for 8-10 minutes, turning frequently
