Chicken Seekh Kebab

October 5, 2023

Chicken Seekh Kebab, or Kabab, are juicy, flavorful ground meat croquettes that are popular street food in India. In this easy 30-minute recipe, ground meat is seasoned with herbs, warm spices, and aromatics, then skewered and grilled to perfection in the air fryer or oven.

Enjoy these kebabs with cilantro or mint chutney for an irresistible appetizer, or wrap it up in Naan for a delicious meal.

Chicken Seekh Kebab is his absolute favorite. It is full of flavor from the herbs and Indian spices, plus it has a melt-in-mouth texture with perfectly grilled skin.

These kababs are pretty easy to put together with easily available ingredients, including lean ground chicken (or turkey), everyday Indian spices, and fresh cilantro.

Sometimes, I use a secret ‘mommy hack’ to make these chicken kebabs healthier. I add finely shredded carrots to the ground meat mix. This not only adds some veggies to the kebabs but also keeps them moist and adds a hint of sweetness to balance the heat of the garam masala. 

We enjoy these chicken kebabs as an appetizer with green chutney or roll them up in a pita or naan for a hearty chicken kebab wrap.  Hubby and I pair it with Indian-flavored Cauliflower rice, chutney, and a side of garden salad for a low-carb meal.
