Seekh Kabab

Seekh kabab - are made of minced meat with spices and grilled on skewers. It is cooked in a Tandoor, and is often served with chutneys or mint sauce. It is often included in tandoori sampler platters, which contain a variety of tandoor cooked dishes. A seekh kebab can also be served in a naan bread much like döner kebab.  
Seekh Kebabs are flavorful little appetizers made from lamb (chicken or beef can also be used) that are traditionally prepared in a Tandoor (clay oven). Since most of us don’t have tandoors, try this easy recipe to make them at home. The use of fresh roasted and ground spices takes the flavor up a notch! Seekh kebab ( (also occasionally known as kebap, kabab, kebob, kabob, kibob, kebhav, kephav) ) is a recipe inspired from middle eastern tradition.
