Seekh Kebab is a popular Indian appetizer typically eaten with green chutney or any dip. These kebabs go well with rotis, biryani or as starter by itself. You can use either chicken, lamb or beef mince. Traditionally, these kebabs are grilled on skewers also known as seekh. But in this recipe I used bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water for a while and kebabs fried on non stick pan.

  1. Wash the mince using a strainer. Remove as much water as possible. To the mince add all the ingredients. Mix well and keep aside. In the meanwhile soak bamboo skewers for some time. This prevents the skewers from burning while frying.
  2. Time now to make kebabs – wet your hands little making your hand damp, take a ball of the meat mix and press it onto the skewers.
  3. Refrigerate for half an hour before frying. Squeeze lemon juice and sprinkle chaat masala before serving.
