Seekh Kebab


Makes: 15-18 kebabs

What you need:

  • 500 g Mince – chicken or lamb (or even turkey mince – we tried it because we couldn’t find chicken mince and turned out super yummy)
  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Garam masala
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic, pounded
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger, pounded
  • 1 1/2 tsp Kosher salt (or 1 tsp normal salt)
  • 4 Tbsp Coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp White pepper powder
  • 2 Green chillies, finely chopped. Use only 1 if you’re not very good with heat.
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Chaat masala (store-bought, or see recipe here)
  • 1/2 tsp Oil

For condiments

  • Onion, finely sliced
  • Coriander leaves, chopped
  • Lime wedges
  • Green chilli chutney – see recipe here

How to put this together:

  1. Mix everything together in a bowl. Knead for 5 mins.
  2. Wet your hands slightly so it doesn’t stick. Take about 40-45 g of mince mixture, and form a long kebab of about 4 inch in length. Leave on a plate. Repeat with the rest of the mince.
  3. Brush a griddle with oil and put on medium heat
  4. When hot, put the prepared kebabs on – make sure to leave enough space between the pieces so the heat can get through. After 1.5 mins, turn them 90 degrees, Repeat until all 4 sides are cooked.
  5. Serve hot with sliced onions, coriander leaves, lime wedges, and green chilli chutney. These kebabs can also be served with bread to make tasty sandwiches.
