Chicken Sheek Kebab





Yum

Kebabs are R's and my favorite but i have never tried it at home and this time i came over my hesitation and gave this a try... To my surprise the results were simply yummilicious...

These kebabs are not only tasty but they are too easy to make and to store for long. I just love the comfort of these yummies...

Lets get to the recipe...


Ingredients

900 gms minced chicken ( I used blender to make the mince)
1 tbsp ginger paste
1 tbsp garlic paste
5 green chillies, chopped finely (adjust as per level of heat desired)
2 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
2 tbsp chopped mint
Salt to taste



Method

In a large bowl add the minced chicken with ginger, garlic, chillies, the spice powders, cilantro, mint and salt and mix till combined.

Take a handful of the mixture and using your fingers, slowly spread the mixture onto a bamboo or metal skewer to form a kebab-like shape.

*If the mixture is too dry and you have difficulty forming it into kebabs, beat an egg in a small bowl and add it to the mince mixture and combine well.

*If the mixture is too wet, add bread crumbs and mix well.

Repeat with the rest of the mixture to form more kebabs.

Cook the kebabs on the barbecue for about 5-6 minutes, turning regularly to ensure even cooking.
You can also grill them in a pre-heated oven for about 5-6 minutes at 200 C.
I used my Air fryer with the same temperature and timing as oven.



Remove onto plates and serve hot sprinkled with chat masala and a squeeze of lime.

Serve a small cup of pickled veggies and pita bread, which makes wonderful wraps.
