Round shaped Chicken Kebab

Chicken kebab is a perfect party food. When I was in Aberdeen, I was surprised to see loads of kebab every corner..they serve kebab with pita bread and veggies. After Fish & chips, kebab is the most liked fast food in UK. I never liked the taste of it. I was going through Sailu's site and found this awesome recipe. My hubby was overwhelmed by the taste of it. My friends appreciated me for making such a wonderful dish.

Thanks Sailu...Ur recipe is Tried,Tasted & Certified: Excellent.

I made this chicken kebab as a appetizer,The plate was empty within few minutes..The picture doesn't do any justice to the taste of the dish. I had no time to take further pictures coz 'hungry eaters' waiting for appetizer.. Next time sure to get good click of the kebab!!!

(Recipe source)


1/2 kg boneless chicken pieces, cleaned and washed
1/4 kg onions finely sliced
8-10 fresh green chillies
5-6 dry red chillies (adjust according to your choice)
15-20 garlic flakes
3″ piece ginger chopped
small bunch coriander leaves, chopped
4 tbsp coriander seeds
1 1/2 tbsp cumin seeds
2″ cinnamon stick
3 green cardamoms
5-6 cloves
20 cashewnuts
salt to taste
oil for deep frying


I didn't do any modification, Just followed the recipe as mentioned by sailu!!!

1.Heat a tbsp of oil in cooking vessel. Add the cumin seeds, coriander seeds, cardamom, cloves, Cinnamon, red chillis and cashewnuts and stir for a minute till a nice aroma emanates the whole kitchen. Be careful not to burn the spices. Cool.

2 .First grind the roasted ingredients along with ginger, garlic and green chillis to a coarse paste. Next add the chopped raw onions, coriander leaves, chicken and salt and grind further to form a smooth paste like shown in the picture above.2 Add a tbsp of oil to the ground mixture and mix thoroughly before shaping into small lemon sized balls.

3 .Heat oil for deep frying. Once its piping hot, reduce flame to medium and place these balls in the oil and fry them to a crisp, golden brown color.

4.Serve hot with tomato sauce or green chutney.



Looks so good. I saw that post at Sailu too long time ago, wanted to try these and then forgot! :)

looks appetizing, rich (love the addition of cashewnuts) and delicious! No wonder the plate was empty within minutes....


Looks delicious and mouthwatering! Thanks for posting this recipe. Quick question- do u think I could use ground chicken(store bought ground chicken/turket breast) instead of starting with cut chicken and grinding it?

Hi Sapna

Ofcourse u can use ground chicken. U can grind the rest of the ingredients and finally add ground chicken. It should be fine!!!
