Tips to make best chicken kabab

  • To make the kababs, the pieces can be slow cooked on skewers by placing them on a bbq.
  • The marination is mandatory to let the chicken absorb all the spice flavors.
  • One can even slow cook these pieces on a pan by adding some oil/butter until the pieces get tender.
  • Stove top method is suggested for those who prefer making recipes using less oil
  • Garam masala powder used here is homemade but when not available, store bought garam masala can be substituted.
  • Homemade masalas give a lot more better taste than store bought one’s.
  • Always use a non stick wok for deep frying in order to avoid the masala sticking to the base of the kadai/wok.
