Here’s my latest lamb seekh kebab recipe!
I’ve tried so many lamb seekh kebab recipes over the years.
With this lamb seekh kebab recipe, you can expect and will get restaurant quality results.
I made this last night and it was really easy too.
Do I have to use fatty lamb?
No. But if you want to cook your seekh kebabs on skewers you should.
The fat not only helps keep the meat on the skewers during cooking, it also makes them a lot juicier.
If you wish to use lean lamb, I recommend forming the meat into patties or place the skewers directly on the cooking grate.
Making lamb seekh kebabs can be a bit tricky if you’ve never made them before.
I’ve heard so many stories from people who got those beautiful seekh skewers over the fire only to have the meat fall off into the coals.
Don’t let that happen to you! Just keep these tips in mind and you enjoy those kebabs as they should be.
1. Always use cold meat. I place mine seekh kebab mix in the fridge for at least 2 hours before cooking.
2. Your minced meat must be really smooth. Ask your butcher to put it through the grinder three times or blend it in a food processor at home.
3. If using onion, be sure to squeeze as much moisture out of it before adding it to the mix.
4. Lightly grease your skewers. This will make removing the seekh kebabs easier when cooked.
5. Use wet hands to form the seekh kebabs. Not only is it easier, it will give the seekh kebabs a more authentic looking finish.
6. If you would rather not take your chances, you can always cook your seekh kebabs on the cooking grate. This will of course leave grill lines on your seekh kebabs but the flavour will still be delicious.
7. If cooking in a tandoor, be sure to put a piece of potato at the end of the skewer to catch the seekh kebab should it decide to try to slide off.
8. Feel free to use to side by side skewers for each kebab. I don’t do this as I have large skewers but it can help turning the kebabs while they cook.
9. Watch the kebabs as the cook and be sure to rotate them from time to time so that they cook evenly.
