Food Diaries | Shish Kebab

I love Shish Kebabs, Seekh Kebab, Sheesh Kebab/Whatever you want to call it kebab . They're so yummy and perfect. This recipe is another quick one and takes less than 5 minutes of prep time, and about 8 minutes to cook. 

What you'll need:

1 kg minced chicken 
(substitute for lamb if that's your thing, I use lean chicken breast mince) 
half a teaspoon cumin powder
bunch of corinader 
1 teaspoon garlic paste
half a teaspoon ginger
chopped green chillies
1 chopped tomato
1 chopped onion
chilli flakes,salt and pepper to taste 


1. Add all the ingredients to the chicken

2. Mix well

3. Allow to marinate for as long as you can or if you're like me then just form into the shapes you like (rub some oil into your palms so they don't stick to you, I prefer these oblong shapes) and place them directly on the pan. Form into shapes and freeze any you won't cook. They'll come in handy another time. 

4. Grill; drizzle a little bit of oil on the pan and cook. They take about 8 minutes, flip halfway through

5. Serve over the salad (one of my favourite ways) 

or in a roti/baguette (my other favourite way)

so so so good! 
I'm cutting refined food out of my diet for a while, so no more bread for me (on a regular basis that is, as bread is kind of my staple food. While I love bread so so so much, I do get very bloated from eating it, and then feel like crap for a while. I've been eating "clean" for a week now and I feel so much better. No more horrible bloating and no more feeling "meh" after a meal.
