Quick Overview

Perfect as a starter or as main, seekh kebabs are simply mince shaped into long thin rods and fried.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

4. Onion
5. Green Chillies
6. Ginger
7. Salt
8. Red Chilli Powder
9. Lamb Mince

1. Place the coriander seeds and cumin seeds into a frying pan, and dry roast for a few minutes – until you can smell them. Roughly pound by hand in a pestle and mortar or a spice grinder.


2. Roughly chop the onions and ginger.


3. Put the onions, ginger, green chillies and fresh coriander into a food processor. Blend until finely chopped.


4. Add the now crushed coriander and cumin seeds, the lamb mince, salt and red chilli powder to the food processor. Blend well, and then remove to a large bowl.


5. Knead the mixture by hand for a minute or two. Then, shape into kebabs. You can do rounds or sausage shapes.


6. Heat the oil in a frying pan, and fry the kebabs on a medium heat until golden brown and cooked through. This will take a few minutes.


7. Serve with salad, Naan and Green Chutney!
