  2. Very lightly roast the dry seeds (excluding coriander seeds n carom seeds)in a sauce pan, allow to cool and then grind to make a smooth flavored powder

  4. Add in the coriander seeds n carom seeds , mix in thoroughly and keep aside, preferably in the refrigerator for at least half an hour to an hour.
  5. Divide the prepared chicken mixture into ten to twelve equal sized portions.
  6. Wet your palm and thread each portion on to a skewer and shape them into kababs of four to five inches long.
  7. Cook in a moderately hot tandoor for about eight to ten minutes turning them occasionally.
  8. Brush the cooked seekhs with butter and cook again for a minute in the tandoor.
  9. They can also be cooked in a preheated oven at 220°C for about ten minutes
  10. Brush the seekhs with butter and cook for two minutes more.
  11. Sprinkle lemon juice, chaat masala on the cooked seekhs and serve hot with spicy coriander or mint chutney , green salad, naan or paratha or tandoori roti.
My Tip: Crushed coriander seeds give a nice crunch and taste to the seekh.
