Chicken Kebab Masala

Here comes another one from my dear Mr. Sinfoodie. He entered into the kitchen to fry some seekh kebabs and then was struck with an idea to convert it into a gravy recipe somewhat on the lines of chicken tikka masala. I am not too fond of seekh kebabs, but this was a nice twist and I loved it.

Chicken Seekh Kebabs - 2 Rolls,cut into 1 cm slices
Onion grated - 1 Large
Tomato finely chopped - 2
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Onion -1 small , cut and peeled into 1 square inch

Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder -1 tsp
Kashmiri Red Chili Powder - 2 tsp
Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1tsp

  2. Heat  2 tbsp oil in  the pan. Add green and black cardamom, cinnamon stick, bay leaves and cumin seeds and fry till the cumin seeds splutters.
  3. Add  grated onions and ginger garlic paste. Fry till the onions are translucent.
  4. Add finely chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, coriander powder,red chilli powders  and salt and cook till tomatoes turn into a puree.
  5. Add Cashwenut paste and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add the kebab pieces and cook for 5 minutes.
  7. Add chopped onions and let it simmer for few minutes.

You know what, I always find Mr. Sinfoodie's recipe much easier than those of Mrs. Sinfoodie :)Of course it doesn't matter cos it's all in the family :)

I guess its more cos I am more inclined towards non-veg recipes..
