bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes; a mortar and pestle; a deep-fry thermometer
For the seekh kebabs: Add the cream cheese, seekh kebab masala and kassori methi to a bowl and sprinkle with salt; stir. Add the minced goat, panko, egg, cilantro and mint. Put the garlic and ginger in a mortar and grind with the pestle into a paste. Add the garlic-ginger paste and lemon juice to the meat mixture and gently combine everything.
Thread the meat mixture on soaked skewers to form a hot dog shape. (If you have time, refrigerate the meat kebabs for 30 minutes before searing.) Add the ghee to a griddle pan over medium-high heat and allow to melt and heat thoroughly. Add the kebabs and cook until just seared on all sides. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
For the mint-mustard sauce: Meanwhile, add the Dijon, honey, horseradish, podina masala, mint and salt and pepper to taste to a bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.
For the corn dogs: In a deep-sided pot, heat 3 inches oil to 350 degrees F.
Pour the Dosa Batter into a tall glass. Gently pat each kebab to remove any excess moisture, then dip it in the batter. Ensure that the entire kebab is coated. Place dipped kebabs in the hot oil, in batches, and cook until golden brown and puffed, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and serve with mint-mustard sauce.
Wash the parboiled rice, dal and fenugreek seeds in cool water a few times till the water runs clear. Soak in cold water in for 6 hours.
Wash and soak the flattened rice in water for 5 minutes.
Strain, then combine in a blender and put just enough water to cover the rice and lentils. Blend to a smooth batter.
Pour the batter into a large bowl. It should reach halfway up the side, giving enough space for the batter to rise during fermentation. Cover the container loosely (not airtight) and rest in a warm place overnight.
