Seekh Kebab - Though originally a Pakistani dish, the Seekh kebab is equally as popular and common in India. A Seekh Kebab is essentially a spiced mince meat kebab which it threaded on metal skewers and placed in a tandoor to cook. There are hundreds of variants of this recipe so here's one personally like but the ingredients can be tweaked to suit your taste. It can be made using anything from Mince Lamb, mutton(goat), beef or even chicken, though the most popular are lamb and beef seekhs.
This Chicken Seekh Kebab is the perfect weeknight meal. It's ready in 15 minutes -street food at its best- quick and delicious! There's also a recipe for a quick microwave mango chutney which is not to be missed! | www.alifeofgeekery.co.uk
When a Pakistani friend of mine in college introduced me to the little packets of pre-blended seekh kebab spices at our local Indian market, it was something of a revelation. Oh, this is what a balanced spice blend tastes like. These days, though, I like to up the ante and cook seekh kebabs up from scratch, using a homemade mixture of spices.
