Serves : 5
  • Bengal gram lentils (chana dal) ½ cupMashed paneer 2 cupsOnion 1 medium, finely chopped Grated ginger 2 tsp Green chiles 2, finely chopped Cabbage ¼ cup, finely chopped (optional) Carrots 2-3 tbsp, finely chopped Bell pepper(capscium) 2 tbsp, finely chopped Salt 1 ½ tsp or to taste Red chili powder ¼ tsp Garam masala ½ tsp Chaat masala ½ tsp Tandoor masala 1 tsp Ghee for brushing


  •  1- Clean, wash, and soak bengal gram lentils (chana dal)  for ½ hour. Boil chana dal with ½ tea spoon salt in a little water. (we do not want soggy dal so make sure that amount of water is perfect)Let it  cool, then mash the lentils (can be done in a mixer/blender). In case if the mixture is wet, fry it until the water has been evaporated.In a mixing bowl, take mashed lentils, crumbled/ mashed paneer, chopped bell pepper (capscium/ shimla mirch), cabbage, carrot, onion, green chilis, and ginger. 2- Now add all the spices in the mixture and mix them very well. 3- Make about 16 oval shape kebabs. Now hold an oval kebab in your hand and gently slip a skewer in the center. Press and give the required shape . 4- Brush a little ghee from every side of the kebab. 5- Cooking Options- 1. I prefer to cook the kebab in the barbeque as this is the most traditional way. For a change, I tried baking the kebabs in the oven. Here are the options..... 2. Oven- If you do not have barbeque do not worry we can make kebabs in the oven. First preheat the oven till 350 F . Now set a butter paper/ foil on the cookie tray and arrange all the skewers in the grill/pizza tray/ cookie tray. Cook till kebabs are golden brown . It takes about 20-25 minutes to cook the kebab in the oven.Barbeque- Usually I like to barbeque the kebabs over charcoal.Gas 3. Stove-If you do not have either barbeque or oven, you can still make seekh kebab at home on gas stove. Put a metal net on the flame, hold the skewers and cook over the medium flame. 4. Deep frying- These kebab can also be deep fried. 6- I like to serve these Noorani Kebabs with Lakhnawi Green chutney but kebab can also be served with other chutney of your taste.
