How to make Chicken Seekh Kebabs

  1. Wash the chicken mince and drain thoroughly. Pat dry with kitchen napkins if the mince is wet.
  2. Beat egg well. Marinate the mince with all the above ingredients overnight in the refrigerator except oil.
  3. Option 1— Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Heat a grill pan and apply olive oil.
  5. Take a small portion (1 heaped tbsp) of the mince. With wet hands drape the mince around the skewers and give shape. Spread it out evenly.
  6. Grill on all sides till nicely browned.
  7. Option 2— Heat enough oil in a nonstick pan to shallow fry the seekhs.
  8. With wet hands, take 1 tbsp mince and give it an oblong shape.
  9. Shallow fry both sides till golden brown.
  10. Serve with mint chutney and pickled onions. Sprinkle chaat masala over them.

My Tip:

Here, I have followed the option 2. 1 lb yields approximately 16 seekhs, 4 per head.
