Seekh kabab is one of the most popular varieties of kabab. Traditionally it is cooked in a charcoal oven which gives a wonderful texture and flavour to the kababs. But it can also be made easily at home with minimal effort and yet without any compromise on taste. I have given below the recipe of making seekh kabab by frying in oil.


300 gms Boneless chicken (washed and pat dried with a towel such that that no water remains)
2 inch piece of ginger
5 cloves of garlic
1 Big onion chopped
1 small cube of cheese grated
1 ½ tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 ½ tsp coriander powder
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp Egg white (approximately)
½ cup Coriander leaves
½ cup mint leaves
Oil for frying


1 tsp Chaat masala
½ a lemon


First heat a pan and sauté the chopped onions. Do not add oil. When they turn golden brown, remove in a plate and allow them to cool. Meanwhile take the cleaned and washed chicken pieces and pat dry with a towel so that no water remains and the pieces are dry. Then take a bowl, add all the ingredients except egg white and mix well. Then grind it into a paste using mincer or mixer grinder. Now add the egg white little by little and mix well. (The egg white acts as a binding agent but too much will make the mixture soggy). Then heat oil in a pan, and line a skewer with oil. Take a small ball of the mixture, and place over the skewer, press to form a cylindrical shape. Slowly pull the kabab from the skewer keeping the shape intact and drop it in oil. Deep fry till golden brown in colour. (It takes only a minute to cook because of the fine hole it has inside.). Repeat the procedure with the remaining mixture. ( Optional : Sprinkle some lemon juice and pinches of chaat masala over the kabab). Serve hot.
