Prep Time20 minsCook Time12 minsTotal Time32 mins

These easy curry veal kebabs resemble a traditional kofta skewer. Serve alongside a tomato salad and simple onion yogurt sauce.

 1 ½ lbs (750 g) ground Ontario veal
 1 green onion, minced
 3 tbsp (45 mL) minced fresh cilantro, divided
 2 garlic cloves, minced
 1 tbsp (15 mL) minced ginger
 1 tbsp (15 mL) medium curry powder
 Salt and pepper
 8 wooden skewers, soaked in water
 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
 1 tbsp (15 mL) extra virgin olive oil
 2 tomatoes, cut into wedges
 ½ cup (125 mL) chopped cucumber
Green Onion Yogurt Sauce:
 2 tbsp (30 mL) extra virgin olive oil
 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
 1 tbsp (15 mL) honey
 2 green onions, thinly sliced
 ½ cup (125 mL) 0% Plain Greek yogurt

Preheat a grill over medium-high heat. In a large bowl combine the veal, minced green onion, 2 tbsp (30 mL) cilantro, garlic, ginger, curry powder and ½ tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper until just combined, do not over mix. Shape the meat into 8-inch (20 cm) long sausages and thread onto a skewer.


Brush the grill and kebabs with canola oil. Grill kebabs for 3 meats per side until meat is thoroughly cooked through, 12 minutes total.


Meanwhile, make yogurt sauce. Stir together Green Onion Yogurt Sauce ingredients and refrigerate.


In a bowl, toss together tomato wedges, cucumber, and olive oil with some salt and pepper.


Divide tomato salad between plates, top with kebab and a dollop of prepared Green Onion Yogurt sauce.
