Silky Chicken Kebabs Recipe.

Updated on June 26, 2015

Kebabs have been favorite dish of Muslim Indian Royalty since long. They used to employ special cooks to make kebabs. It was said that if a cook is not Kebabs then he doesn’t know cooking at all. Kebabs are usually made from mutton ( lamb or goat meat), but since red meat is not considered healthy these days so chicken variety now is getting popular all over India. Kebabs are very good to eat and if cooked properly they melt in mouth leaving a rich taste. Kebabs use oil so they are not a very healthy food but I am sure all of you agree that sometimes taste has to take preference over the health.

Serves 8


1. Chicken breasts: 450 grams / 1 pound. Skinless and boneless roughly chopped.

2. Cashew Nuts: 60 grams / 2 Oz.

3. Cream: 2 Tbsp.

4. Egg: 1

5. Cilantro / Coriander: 15 grams / ½ oz fresh with stems. Chopped.

6. Butter: 30 grams / 1 Oz melted

7. Garlic puree: 2 Tsp.

8. Ginger Puree: 2 Tsp.

9. Green chilies: 2 roughly chopped deseeded.

10. Garam Masala: 1 Tsp

11. Vegetable oil : For brushing

12. Salt: ½ Tsp or according to taste.

13. Chutney to serve.


1. Take a heat proof bowl.

2. Put cashew nuts in the bowl.

3. Add boiling water to the bowl.

4. Cover it with a plate and leave for 20 to 30 minutes.

5. Drain and put them in a food processor.

6. Add 1 egg and 2 Tbsp of cream.

7. Now on the processor to make a course paste.

8. Now to this paste in food processor add all ingredients except for oil and butter.

9. Now process this in to a smooth mixture.

10. Transfer this mixture in a bowl, cover and put it in a refrigerator for 30 to 45 minutes.

11. Now pre heat the grill to high.

12. Now take 8 metal skews and lightly coat them with oil.

13. Brush oil on the rack too.

14. Keep a bowl of cold water ready.

15. Dip hand in cold water.

16. Take out the chilled mixture and divide it in to 8 portions.

17. Now carefully mould each portion of mixture on the metal skew, making it a sausage shape 6 inch / 15 cm long.

18. Now kebabs are ready to be cooked.

19. Now arrange all 8 skews on a preheated rack in the grill.

20. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes.

21. Now brush with half the butter and cook for another minute or so.

22. Now turn them over and cook for another 3 minutes.

23. Now put the remaining butter on these kebabs and cook for another couple of minutes.

24. Remove from heat.

25. Let kebabs rest for 5 minutes or so.

26. Now slide them off skews with a sharp knife.

27. Serve with cilantro chutney.


1. If you dip the hand in cold water before putting mixture on the Skews then the mixture won’t stick to your hands.

2. Don’t use hands to slide off kebabs off skews as they might be very hot and burn your hand.

3. If you don’t have cilantro chutney then you can use ketchup too.

      Thanks Jenubouka once again for the comment and we do put some veggies on skew in between meat or main dish like paneer. Usually it is onions, tomatoes and capsicum.

      In the States we skewer some meat with sometimes veggies, throw it on the grill and call it good. Although this recipe truly defines the importance of preparation of this ethnic dish. The cashew part is what blew me away, I can see how this adds another level of flavor and texture. Definitely on my list, as all the other recipes you grace us with.
