“ Brand: Shazans / Type: Meat „
I picked these up from Morrrisons recently purely because they were on offer and I thought I would give them a go because I do love my kebabs!, I think I paid under £4 for a large bag of 25. They are frozen so they are convenient to keep in the freezer until you need them.
The ingedeients are:
Lamb (80%),Onions, Salt, Green Chillies, Whole Cumin, Potato Starch, Meat Tenderiser, Garam Marsala, Flavour Enhancer E621,Garlic Powder, Fenugreek Powder, Black Pepper, Fresh Coriander, Herbs And Spices.
I put three kebabs in the microwave for 90 seconds, the smell of them was mouthwatering. You can just eat these on there own with maybe a salad and a raita dressing but my preferred way of eating them is in a chapati: I place three of them in a chapati and add some garlic mayonaise or if Iam feeling like a bit more heat, some chilli sauce as well then I just roll the chapati round the kebabs - perfect.
These kebabs are simply delicious and they aren't too hot, they contain green chillies (you can see little green specks of chilli in them) that provide a little heat. They really do taste authentic, I have a feeling that my local take-away is serving them in the kebab rolls that I usually pay £2.50 each for.
The only thing wrong with these is that you can have difficulty seperating them from frozen as they can clump together a bit, unless that is my freezer playing up?
Compared to those awful microwave doner kebabs you get (you know the ones, rock hard pitta bread and greasy semi-edible meat) these are far superior and I will definately be buying them again, I have seen them at a local Asian deli as well as at Morrissons.
I ate these Shazans Microcook Lamb Kebabs at my mates house the other day and they're surprisingly tasty. You get 4 in a box and they are spiced lamb moulded into thick sausage shapes.
These are halal and I had to laugh when my mate told me she'd brought them because her grandmother was visiting and she didn't want to disappoint her by letting her see all the non-halal food she usually eats! lol I know this wouldn't be particularly funny to a practising muslim but I reckon I can safely say my mate is lapsed!
The kebabs cook in about 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave and after a few seconds the rich spicy meat smell filled the kitchen, my mouth was watering as she took them out and I couldn't wait to try them! They don't look very appetising but the smell was enough to tell me I might enjoy them.... and I did, big time!
The texture of them is quite firm and very meaty, you can deffo taste the lamb over the spices and they're not as hot tasting as I thought they were going to be. There's quite a strong kick to the kebabs as you chew the meat but it never gets that harsh that it burns your mouth like some Indian inspired foods do.
There's an onion flavour in the kebabs and that goes proper nice with the lamb, the herbs and spices Shazans have used brings out the sweetness of the meat and I think all the different flavours go sooooo nice together.
It's weird because you can tell this isn't proper authentic food but it's still delish. My mate did a mint yogurt dressing up to dip the kebabs in and that was lush with the meat, it cooled the spiciness down a bit and if you're having lamb it has to be mint anyway! lol
Recommended..... whether you HAVE to eat halal food or not!!!
