Chicken Kabab

Kabab are very popular middle eastern which are either grilled, roasted and added in stewed dishes and is very popular in Indian too. I always love to grill, a week before at our friends place we tried grilling lamb kabab for the first time and fell in love with it. It was so perfectly cooked and very yummy with the beautiful grill marks, but I could not take a picture of it.
So I decided to cook the same recipe with chicken and this time in the oven, first baked and then finally broiled it to get a little bit char on top.

1lb Ground Chicken (from cage free)
1 small Onion or Green Onion chopped
1 tsp Ginger-garlic paste
1/4 cup Bread Crumbs
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 pkg Shan's Tikka Seekh Kaba Masala

1 tsp Olive Oil
10-12 Skewers (medium size)
1 tsp Tomato Ketchup

1. In a large mixing bowl combine all the ingredients except the oil and tomato ketchup. Make sure you don't over mix it, as it will make the meat hard after cooking.
2. Meantime soak the skewers in cold water for about 20 mins. This is to avoid the skewers from burning while we cook on the grill or oven.
3. Take a skewer and roll the meat over and press to form the the desired shape.

4. Place all the skewers on a line baking sheet with parchment paper and brush it with olive oil.
5. If you are grilling you can directly put these skewers over the grill and cook it for about 4-5 mins each side or until the meat it cooked and you get nice grill marks.
6. If cooking in an oven, you need to preheat the oven to 375F and cook it for about 20-25 mins turning once  or until the meat is well cooked. Now turn the oven to broil and cook again for about 1 min each side to get a char.

7. For both grilling and oven bake methods, finally you need to brush the tomato ketchup over the kabab and grill or broil it for more 30 secs.

8. I served this with Mango Mint Sour Cream Dipping Sauce, you can serve with any choice of dipping sauce or chutney.
