  • 3 Red Chilies
  • 3 Green Chilies
  • 1 Onion
  • 6 clove Garlic
  • 1 tsp Paprika

Making kabab Mixture:

  • In a food processor, add cilantro, mint leaves, onion, garlic, red and green chilies. Process until they are finely chopped.
  • Wear a glove and squeeze all the liquid out of the chopped mix. You can also use a nutmilk bag or a cheese cloth to do this. Discard the liquid.
  • In a bowl, add the chopped mixture and all the remaining ingredients except oil and cheese. Mix or knead to make a uniform kebab mixture.
  • Add cheese at the end and mix until fully combined.

Shaping The Kababs:

  • To divide the mixture into equal portions, use an icecream scooper or a tablespoon. Place each scoop of mixture on a plate.
  • Put the plate in the freezer for 15 mins and then take it out for shaping
  • Pour 3 to 4 tablespoon oil in a cup and use some to grease the palm of your hands.
  • Take a portion of mixture and use the palm of your hands to roll it into a rough shape.
  • Insert a thick skewer (or straw or wooden bbq stick) through one tip of the kabab and bring out on the other side.
  • Use the palm of your hands to perfect the shape of the kabab.
  • Carefully remove the kabab from the skewer by sliding the skewer out and placing the kabab back on the tray.
  • IF you want to cook the kababs with the skewers then leave the skewers intact.

Cook The Kababs:

  • For pan frying, place a large nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium heat on the stove. You can also use a grill pan.
  • Add oil to cover the base of the skillet.
  • When oil becomes hot (3 to 4 mins), add kababs to the pan without overcrowding it.
  • Use a straight spatula or tongs to turn the kababs frequently, allowing all sides to turn golden brown evenly.
  • Cook for a total of 5 mins. Transfer kababs to your serving dish once they are done.
