How To Make Chicken Seekh Kabab

Juicy, tender, spicy and tasty Chicken Seekh Kabab is an all time favourite among chicken lovers.

Best served with onion rings flavoured with chat masala and green coriander chutney. I even added some tomatoes too.

Some important pointers-

  • Using fresh mince will give better(moister)kababs.
  • If you can get fresh mince frozen is just fine. Make sure to defrost well in advance and put it in a strainer to remove excess liquid.
  • You can use chicken breast if you can’t get mince chicken. Simply chop chunks of breast peice in food processor with a blade attachment and your chicken will be minced.
  • Although marinating is not really required but it does make a difference when it comes to taste. The spices are more blended and well absorbed.
  • Chop everything really small so that it’s easier to skewer them. I use this chopper.

So now that we got the basics right we can start with the prep.

  11. Now make a small ball with mince and flatten on your hand.
  12. Hold skewers from one end and start making kababs but pushing it’s on the skewers. Use your thumb and index finger to make sma ring and shape the kababs.
  13. Once all the kebabs are ready place them one by one on the skillet. I made 3-4 at a time.
  14. Brush little oil or even ghee on top.
