Baked Seekh Kebabs


2 pounds Beef Kheema (Minced Beef)

½ an onion

½ cup fried onion

½ cup bread crumbs (to make my life easier)

¼ cup oil

Handful chopped cilantro

1-2 green chillies (depending on taste)

½  tsp red chili powder

¼ tsp cumin powder

¼ tsp coriander powder

¼ tsp turmeric powder (haldi)

1 tsp ginger paste

1 tsp garlic paste

Salt as per taste

1½ tbs of Shan Seekh Kabab Mix – (As you all probably know by now I use a lot of Shan and National Spice mixes but rarely follow directions. Mainly because I don’t like garam masala and most of these spice mixes have a lot of it, so I tend to put tbs or tsp as it adds flavor to the dish).


Mix above ingredients very well. Let it sit for 30 mins.

If you have the time, grind up all the spices (except minced meat and oil) together. (I did not hence have used chopped onion and cilantro). But the ground spices will probably give it a more authentic look!

Wet the skewer

Wet your hands slightly

Shape the kebab’s into a ball.

While holding the skewer with your right hand, use your left four fingers to change the shape of the kebab ball into an oblong shape. (Rotate the kebab but hold the skewer straight – works better). 

Let it sit till you are done shaping all the kebabs

Spray the pan and kebab with Pam and baked at 350° for 30 minutes turning over once and spraying the kebab once more on the flipped side with Pam.

You can fry it on both sides if you like.

The kebabs slightly shrink so make the ball bigger if you want longer kebabs.

Serve with green chutney or hot sauce.

Parmesan Crusted Tandoori Chicken


12 Pieces of Chicken legs
2-3 tbs of Plain Greek Yogurt (you can use regular yogurt)
½ tsp of Red Chili Powder
¼ tsp of Turmeric Powder
¼ tsp of Cumin Powder
¼ tsp of Coriander Powder
1 tsp of Tandoori Masala (any brand would work I use Rajah because of the bright red color)
½ tsp of Black Pepper
1 pack of Kraft’s Parmesan Seasoning Blends – Hearty Tuscan Herbs (I only made 4 pieces of chicken using this recipe so I used only ½ the pack)
Salt to taste


In a large bowl wash the chicken and make slits on the pieces.
Add the yogurt, spices and salt and mix well.
Let it marinate for half an hour.


Place an aluminum foil on an oven safe tray and use a bit of oil to spread over the foil.
Place the Chicken pieces on the tray and place in the oven.
Bake at 350° for 30 minutes (turning once in between).
Remove from Oven and squeeze ½ a lemon on the Chicken pieces.
Serve hot.

Happy Chewing ☺

(Note: If you just want to make plain Tandoori Chicken follow the same recipe but do not add the Parmesan Seasoning blend)
