Indian Style Sheekh Kabab Recipe
Ground lamb is seasoned with fresh mint and cilantro, and ginger and green chili paste, and made into delicious shish kabobs. Serve with lime wedges, mint chutney, and sliced, sweet Vidalia onions.
This was really good!! only had to change one thing which was I use freshly diced green chilis no paste avail. also a little hard to put on skewers but it sure did grill up great.
Made this and it was excellent, Helpful hint squeeze out the liquid of the onion. Place the chopped fine onion in the center of a kitchen towel and twist each end of the towel opposite from each other until all liquid is removed from the onion. This will prevent from falling apart while cooking.
I would give this "Indian Style Sheekh Kabab" 10 stars if I could. It is one of our favorite recipes on Allrecipes. Thank you Yakuta Rasheed for sharing your recipe!
This is a comment about methods to keep the meat from rotating when you turn them or falling off the skewers. At middle eastern markets (if you have one near you) one can buy metal skewers that are flat and a scant half inch wide. Forming the ground meat around these is much easier and relatively failsafe. A second method is to use 2 skewers (well soaked bamboo or wood). While the meat will easily rotate on a single skewer, it usually will not using 2 skewers. I have not made this recipe but gave it 5 stars based on ingredients. I am sure it would be very good, but I have a recipe that I have used for years that is a little different.
Made these few weeks ago exactly as the recipe, turned out delicious, making it again this weekend. Will post my pic. soon. Thanks for a great recipe.
my sister made this for Mother's Day dinner and it was FANTASTIC! We're greek so we added Tsaziki to it and it was wonderful!
very very nice just like I used to have at a small indian take out years ago. try making some naan bread and making a kebab roll with it with salad and chilli sauce.
This is a family favorite. I use either ground lamb, meatloaf mix, or a combination of meatloaf mix and 90% ground beef. I chop all ingredients in food processor and mix with spices in a bowl. If I am out of fresh cilantro, I double the amount of ground coriander. I find baking the skewers on a broiling pan at 425F works very well, turning after 20 min and cooking for an additional 5-10. You don't want to overcook or they get really dry.
