Seekh Kabab or Sheesh Kabab is a great starter. It ispacked with flavours and taste. Try it out. Normally you eat it in restaurants or Dhabas. It is not that difficult to try. Even if you do not have the metal Skewers, you can just shape it like a kebab and grill it.


  1. 750 gramed finely minced meat ( Lamb or Mutton)
  2. 1 small onion, chopped
  3. 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  4. 1 tsp. ginger, chopped
  5. 1 tsp. Red chili,
  6. 1 tsp. ground clove powder
  7. 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
  8. 1 tsp. cumin powder
  9. 2 tsp. Coriander powder,
  10. 1 tsp Garam masala
  11. 2 fresh green chilies, chopped
  12. 2 tablespoon. lemon juice
  13. 1 tbsp. Besan(Gram Flour)
  14. 2 tbsp. Fresh Coriander – chopped
  15. 2 tbsp. mint leaves, chopped
  16. 2 slices of white bread or 4 tablespoons of bread crumbs
  17. 2 tsp. salt
  18. 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  19. 1/4 cup oil for grilling and greasing the skewers
  20. Metal Skewers ( thick ones)


  1. First of all grind the bread into bread crumbs in a mixer or churner. ( omit this step if you are using the bread crumbs)
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients (except the oil) to the mixer and make a thick paste.
  3. Marinate the meat in this mixture and keep the mixture in the fridge, overnight.
  4. Grease the skewer.
  5. Take some mixture in your hand and using your palm and fingers, make a sausage shaped kebab.
  6. Grill until cooked, brushing with oil and rotating the skewers frequently.
  7. Serve it with some onion rings , lemon wedges and chat masala and some lime.

This is an excellent high protein dish as the excess fat and oil is drained while cooking.  Try it with some spicy Chutney

The binding is very important in the kababs as the meat will not stick to the skewers. The breadcrumbs, Besan and the Egg provides the binding. You can vary the quantity as per your liking to achieve a good binding in the final mixture.
