Recipe 11/50 : Pakistan : Seekh Kebabs

Recently I had kebabs at a local restaurant near Washington D.C and I hated them very badly. After coming back home from D.C I decided to make kebabs and enjoy its taste in every bite I had. At the same time I also had to cook something for my 50 from 50 in 50 challenge and hence came up with an idea of cooking kebabs of Pakistan, Seekh Kebabs.  
After making these kebabs at home, I wished to get back to that place in D.C and ask the person to taste them. I know I'm being very mean but ,when you spend money you wish to get at least the food which is eatable right??? I don't say I'm perfect but all I wish "taste before you serve". 
The recipe I tried is very simple and requires very less time to cook too.





1. 1/2 pound ground chicken
2. 3-4 cubes of potato [ Without skin]
3. Quarter onion chopped
4. 4-5 green chili or to taste
5. 1/2 cup cilantro
5. 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
6. 1 tsp black pepper
7. 1/2 tsp turmeric
8. Salt to taste
9. Oil for frying
1. Grind together all the ingredients except cilantro.
2. Take the mixture in a bowl ,add cilantro and mix well 
3. Make a small ball of the mixture and fry it in the oil for checking salt and spice levels and adjust accordingly
4. Once all are sufficient, make small sausage shaped kebabs with hand and drop in oil for frying.
5. Turn them over to cook on either sides. Keep cooking till its evenly brown on each side
6. Remove from oil and insert skewers [ Optional] 
7. Sprinkle some lemon juice on kebabs and serve with mint chutney!!!
