Seekh Kebab

Once you take a break it’s really difficult to get back into that mood of blogging…I wonder whether it’s ever going to come back now…I really wish it does though as I miss blogging !

Its break time for me here and I am off work for a week, which also means I get to take pictures of what I cook in day light. Spring is near our door steps now, days are getting longer and temperatures are slightly getting warmer.  I was looking forward to this break  and have kick started the fun today catching up with friends with a  long gals day out  which ended with an elaborate  lunch and  a movie! 

Whenever we go out eat out in Pakistani restaurants, kebabs is something we try a lot. Last year I tried making shami kebab with the help of a friend which  tasted absolutely delicious so here I am again with another favourite kebab of ours which is so easy to make.

Lamb mince – 500 gm
Onion – 1 medium
Egg – 1 small (beaten)
Cumin seeds – 1 ½ tbs
Corainder seeds – 2 tbs
Red chilli powder – ½ tsp
Garam masala – ½ tsp
Green chillies – 2
Ginger garlic paste – 2 tsp
Coriander leaves – fistful

  • Dry roast cumin and coriander seeds separately and powder it in a mixie/ coffee grinder
  • Crush onions in a mixie (not paste) and keep it aside.
  • Make a paste of green chillies and coriander and keep it aside.
  • In a bowl add the crushed onion, ginger garlic paste and green chilli- coriander paste.
  • Add salt, powdered cumin and coriander, red chilli powder and mix.
  • Add minced lamb, egg and mix.
  •  Refrigerate it for 1 hour.
  • Take wooden skewers and with a wet hand stick the minced mix on the skewers
  • Bake it in a preheated oven at 200 degree C for 25 minutes flipping the sides in between.
