Seekh Kabab is a traditional Pakistani meat dish. They are one of the best mouth watering starters, full of spices, flavors and tasteful aromas.

I may not have any Pakistani friend/s, but I surely do know how to prep this spiced up starter and I will gladly teach y’all how easy it is to prepare it. First let’s go over the ingredients:

  • 1 tea spoon of paprika
  • 1 tea spoon of cumin
  • 1 tea spoon of turmeric
  • 1 tea spoon of chili flakes
  • 1- 1/2 tea spoons of salt
  • 1/2 tea spoon of chili powder
  • 1/2 tea spoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tea spoon of ginger powder

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a food processor, place the diced onions + minced garlic + chopped parsley + chopped mint leaves. Pulse to 2 -3 secs to make a paste. Add in the chili flakes and pulse again to combine. In a large bowl, add in the minced beef + all the other spices – knead it like dough, then add in the parsley mix – and combine. Cover the bowl with clear cling foil and chill in the fridge for 2 hours  – for marination.

2. After 2 hours of refrigeration, Check if the meat mixture is soggy, {Only at this stage you are allowed to add in some bread crumbs to soak up the moisture}. Take BBQ skewers and add the meat mix on it -them elongate them to a preferred size – set them aside. I made about 7 pieces. Pre heat the oven to 220 Degrees Celsius – [450 degrees Fahrenheit} for 10 mins before placing the kababs in.

3. Take out the oven grill -align the skewers on it. Cut out an aluminium foil , same size to the baking tray -and place the foil there. This is to capture all the oil that will be emitted from the kababs while baking.

4. Bake in the oven for 20 mins. While it bakes, remember after 10 min, using tongs, flip the other side -so as to bake evenly. FYI: At this stage – you can prep a salad, or a dipping sauce.

Once baked. -Final outcome.
