A mouth watering, flavorful, smoky appetizer sure to be a party pleaser! Make restaurant style seekh kebab along with a tangy mint-coriander chutney (the classic green restaurant style green chutney) in your kitchen!
Yield: 5-6, 7 inch kebabs
Mint leaves…10 to 12
Coriander leaves…1 cup
Plain unsweetened yogurt…4 tablespoons
*use any meat of your choice (chicken/lamb/goat/beef)
Onions (sliced thin)...1 cup
Bread...toasted till crisp (for making bread crumbs)
Coriander + Mint leaves (chopped, 1 cup)
Ginger...(1x1 inch piece, chopped)
Garlic (3-4 cloves)
Turmeric powder...1/4 tsp.
Fresh lime juice...2 tbsp.
Chaat masala...1 tsp.
Oil and butter for frying
Other than this you need
A piece of charcoal and some ghee to smoke the kebabs
Dry masala mix
Dry Roast the following spices on a pan set at medium heat (for approximately 3 min) and grind them to a fine powder
Dry red chilli...1
Cinnamon sticks (2, 1 inch pieces)
Black peppercorns...1/2 tsp.
Coriander seeds...1 tsp.
Green Chutney for the kebabs
Add mint leaves, coriander leaves, yogurt, green chilli and salt to a blender jar and blend to a smooth paste
Add some lime juice if the yogurt isn’t tart enough
You can make the kebabs with any minced meat of your choice (chicken/goat/lamb/beef)
I used minced chicken
If you can’t get minced meat you can take some boneless pieces and easily grind them
Add ~2 tbsp. oil to a pan set on medium heat
Add ~1/2 tsp. salt
Stir fry till the onions turn deep brown in color (this should approximately take 7-8 min)
Transfer this to a bowl and let it cool down
Let’s make some bread crumbs (or you can buy it!)
Toast 3-4 slices of bread till they are crisp
Cool them down and grind to a coarse powder
Now let’s make a wet masala mix
To a grinder jar add the following and grind to a coarse paste
Chopped mint and coriander leaves
onions that we just fried
chopped ginger and
Add this wet masala mix to the minced chicken and mix well
Add a pinch of turmeric powder, fresh lime juice and the dry masala mix
Beat one egg in a bowl and add 2 tbsp. into the kebab mix
Add enough bread crumbs so it easily holds shape when you take a fistful of the mix (approximately 2-3 tbsp.)
Making the kebabs
Take a handful of the kebab mix and roll it
into the shape of a sausage
Pass a skewer through it and press it in
Fry the kebab in a pan set on medium heat with some oil and butter
Fry till the kebabs are golden brown on all sides (this should take approximately 5-7 min)
Finish by sprinkling some chaat masala
To infuse a smoky flavor in the kebabs, take a burning charcoal in a metal bowl, add some ghee to it and place on the kebab pan. Cover and smoke for atleast 10 min
You can burn the charcoal directly on a gas flame or with can charcoal lighter fluid available to you.
Even better if you can barbecue the kebabs! If not just smoke it the way I explained it!
You can enjoy them as an appetizer or make a full meal out of it! Just take some naan or tandoori roti, place one kebab on it, add some sliced onions, squeeze some lime juice, add some of the mint-coriander chutney and done!!
You just made yourself some really delicious food! This is surely a party pleaser!
Hope you enjoyed the recipe!
