  1. Combine the chicken mince, onion, green chillies, garlic ginger paste, oil, seekh kebab masala, salt, egg (if adding), and green coriander in a large mixing bowl. Mix well to combine.

  2. After mixing the chicken mince, wet your hands with water and shape the mixture into small, flat patties. Refrigerate the chicken patties for 15-20 minutes to allow the flavours to blend and the mixture to firm up before cooking.


  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat.

  2. Once the oil is hot, add the patties to the pan, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.

  3. Cook the patties for 5-7 minutes on both sides or until they are evenly browned and cooked through.

  4. Once the patties are cooked, transfer them to a plate lined with a paper towel to remove excess oil.

  5. Serve the seekh kebab cutlets with a side salad, green chutney or any dipping sauce you like.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Ensure the oil is hot enough before adding the kebabs to prevent them from sticking or burning.

  2. You can also shape the marinated chicken into elongated kebab shapes.

  3. The number of servings for this recipe may vary depending on the portion size served.

  4. This recipe yields around 12 patties, but you can adjust the size of the patties as desired. Smaller patties will cook faster and may require less time in the pan, so adjust the cooking time accordingly.
