seekh kabab recipeseekh kabab recipe | veg seekh kabab recipe | vegetable seekh kabab with step by step photo and video recipe. the seek kabab recipe originates from pakistan, afganistan and west punjab cuisine and is typically prepared from minced meat. it is grilled on skewers and is basically cooked in tandoor oven. seek kabab recipe can be served as a party starter or in roti / chapathi as a frankie or roll with other vegetables.

i am big fan of paneer recipes and especially paneer starters like achari paneer tikka or paneer ghee roast. however, my husband always prefer to kebab whenever we plan our outdoor lunch or dinners. hence we end up ordering both the starters and i end up eating these kebab recipes. i personally like veg seekh kabab wrapped within garlic naan with some chopped vegetables as veggie wrap rather than as a starter. but it even tastes great with the combination of yogurt + green chutney too.

furthermore, some important tips and suggestions for a perfect seekh kabab recipe. firstly, i have used normal nonstick tawa to grill the kebeb. however it can also be grilled in oven by applying some butter or oil on top of it. secondly, apply oil to your palm while shaping the kebeb to skewers. also try to shape it evenly otherwise, kabab may not stick to skewers. lastly, if you do not have mint sauce or chutney, just mix yogurt with green chutney or sandwich chutney and serve it with vegetable seekh kabab.

finally, i would like to highlight my other snacks recipes collection with this post. particularly, aloo tikki, dahi ke kabab, hara bhara kabab, ragda patties, vada pav, chilli potato, bread roll and stuffed mirchi bajji recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection board like,
