  • Grate the onions first & squeeze out the juice completely. You may do it easily with the help of a sieve or sifter & a spoon. Place the grated onion on the sieve and press with the spoon to drain out the juice.
  • Add all the ingredients in a dry bowl and mix gently working with the help of your fingers. DO NOT knead or over mix.
  • Take one skewer at a time from the water you soaked them in. And skewer the meat all the way up to the tip of the skewer stopping at about 1"-2" from the tip. Refer the pic.
  • Gently press the meat with the help of your fingers and give it a cylindrical shape all around the skewer. Set aside. Repeat this step until you are done skewering the meat in the skewers.
  • Brush oil on a griddle or tawa and set it over medium heat. Place the skewered meat along with the skewers on the tawa or griddle and cook until golden on all sides. Rotate them from time to time so that all the sides get cooked properly.
  • Serve hot. Enjoy!


  1. If you find that the chicken mince became a little sticky after mixing in everything just add some more bread crumbs. 1 tsp at a time.
  2. Wet your hands while shaping the kababs. They won't stick to your palm.
  3. Soak the bamboo skewers in water for 10-15 mins before skewering the meat. This will prevent them from burning.
  4. VERY IMPORTANT: Squeeze out the juice from the onion completely. And there should not be any trace of water in the cilantro leaves too.
  5. You may halve or double, triple the measurements of this recipe.
  6. Adjust the spices according to your taste oreference. We love a subtle flavored Kababs and hence do not use a lot of spices. We love the natural flavor of the meat to shine through the kabab recipe.
  7. If you love spicy Kababs add chicli powder or chopped green chilies. Chop them fine.
  8. You will get approximately 12-14 Chicken Sheekh Kabab Skewers.
  9. If you have some extra time just pop in the Kabab mixture in the fridge & allow it to rest for 1-2 hrs. This will help you to handle & shape the Kabab easily.

Measuring cup used, 1 cup = 240 ml & 1 teaspoon = 5 ml.
