Chicken Sheekh Kebab

Originally known as shish kebabs, these delicious cylindrical kebabs came to India via the Turks. Though they are usually cooked over coals, this recipe by SWEENY DIAS uses an oven and chicken as the meat of choice.


  • 250 grams minced chicken
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 green chillies
  • Coriander leaves, a handful
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • ½ teaspoon green cardamom
  • 50 grams butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Skewers, dipped in water for 30 minutes


  • In a blender, add the onion, green chillies and coriander leaves and make a thick paste.
  • Add the minced chicken to it and blend well. Place the mix in a bowl and add the spices. Mix well.
  • To it, add the melted butter and lemon juice and combine well. Let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • Apply some butter on your hands and start sticking the mixture onto the skewers.
  • Place the skewers in an oven at 180°C or heat a pan with some butter in it and place the skewers on it.
  • Roast the kebabs for 6 to 7 minutes. Serve them with green chutney and sliced onions.
