Easy Kebabs

IMG_9849.JPG

I haven’t had my ginger/garlic paste in my house for a few weeks now and I am suffering (okay it’s not that bad) but I really wanted to eat some kebabs and didn’t have all the ingredients I needed. So I decided to use Mustard sauce instead of ginger/garlic paste and the results were absolutely amazing. It was so easy and delicious that I had to share.

I even made impromptu butter chicken without ginger/garlic paste the recipe shall follow soon (I do have many packeted ingredients for life saving emergencies lol).

Ingredients:
1 pound minced chicken (kheema)
1-cup Panko breadcrumbs
½ cup Fried onions
1 tbs Southwest spicy mustard
1 finely chopped green chilly
1 tbs Bihari kebab spice mix (You can use any kebab mix you have or like)
½ tsp Red chili powder
½ tsp Turmeric powder
¼ tsp Cumin powder
¼ tsp Coriander powder
Salt as per taste

Method:
Mix all the ingredients and set aside for ½ an hour.
Roll the meat mixture into desired shape.
Shallow fry till brown on both sides.

Serve hot.
