It is impossible to speak of the Mughlas and ignore the heritage of kebabs that they left behind. Though most people believe that kebabs are completely a non-vegetarian's prerogative, vegetarian kebabs are a real treat to the senses! Seekh kebabs are nothing but kebabs that have been prepared on the seekh or metal skewer over a barbeque or in a tandoor. Moong dal makes the perfect seekh kebab. Potato has been used for binding the kebab and a host of delectable spices add a range of flavours.
- Clean, wash and boil the moong dal in 1 cup of water till the dal is soft and cooked and all the water has evaporated.
- Combine the cooked dal with the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, and mix well.
- Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions.
- Using a thick seekh (metal skewer), press each portion of the dal mixture on it with your fingers to make a 100 mm. (4") long kebab.
- Brush each kebab with a little oil.
- Cook the kebabs (approx. 3 to 4 minutes) over a charcoal or electric barbeque till they are evenly browned on all sides.
- Cut into pieces and serve hot with phudina chutney.
