Traditionally seekh kebabs are made with mince meat that has been seasoned and pressed onto a tandoor stick before being lowered into the hot tandoor that makes it a perfect golden brown. Seekh kebabs are very rich and have been a favorite with royal families of India for centuries. Today seekh kebabs are no longer limited to the non-vegetarians menu. Made with grated boiled potatoes, carrots peas and dal this mouth-watering kebab will leave every one licking their finger tips. Since most of us do not have a tandoor available at home this recipe uses the grill or a charcoal barbeque to cook the kebabs. Enjoy these kebabs with fresh Hari Chutney.
- 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 all the remaining ingredients, except the oil, and mix well.
- Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions.
- Using a thick seekh (metal skewer), press each portion of the dal mixture on it using your fingers to make a 100 mm. (4") long kebab.
- Brush each kebab very lightly with a little oil.
- Cook the kebabs over a grill or over a charcoal barbeque till they are evenly browned (approx. 3 to 4 minutes).
- Serve hot with hari chutney.
