You can prepare the kababs with any minced meat of your preference.

How to Cook

Making chicken kababs is simple! Once the ingredients are prepped, just mix them, marinade, and deep-fry for a few minutes.


For Chicken Kabab Mixture

  • Minced Chicken (250 grams)
  • 2 green chilies (chopped)
  • ½ cup of coriander & mint leaves (chopped)
  • 2 medium-sized onions
  • Half a lemon (sliced)
  • ½ tablespoon of ginger & garlic paste
  • 2 teaspoons papaya paste
  • 2 tablespoons of chickpea flour
  • 1 tablespoon of the spice mixture

Instructions for making Chicken Kabab

Prepare the Minced Chicken

  • Wash the minced chicken and leave it on a sieve for 10-15 minutes to drain the excess water.
  • Grind it for a few seconds in the food processor. We do not need a smooth texture.

Prepare the Chilies, Onions, and Fresh Herbs

  • Chop the chilies, coriander, and mint leaves
  • For the first onion- peel and grate it. Then, squeeze out the excess water.
  • For the second onion- slice it roughly, shallow fry it in olive oil until golden brown, and crisp. Next, blend it for 10-15 seconds.

Make the Chicken Kabab Mixture & Patties

  • Take a large bowl and add all the chicken kabab ingredients one by one.
  • Using your hands, combine all the ingredients for a couple of minutes.
  • Now, cover and let the mixture sit for an hour.
  • After the marinating time is up, uncover the bowl. Lightly grease your palms with oil.
  • Take a little kabab mixture in your palms and roll it into a ball shape. Then, press it gently to get the flat medium-thick patty shape. Keep it on a plate.
  • Repeat the process with the rest of the kabab mixture.

Fry the Soft Kabab Patties

  • Heat a pan on the stove. Pour a generous amount of olive oil. Heat the oil and adjust the flame to medium.
  • Place the soft patties one by one carefully into the hot oil. Cook for 90 seconds.
  • Cautiously flip the patties. Adjust to low-medium heat. Cook for 4 minutes.
  • Take the patties out on a plate lined with an oil-absorbing sheet.

Your “chicken kababs” are ready! Serve them with mayo dip, mint yogurt dip, or tomato ketchup.

  • The papaya paste helps tenderize the meat. A good substitute for papaya paste is pineapple puree.
  • At the time of frying the kababs, make sure the oil never goes cold.
  • Instead of deep-frying the chicken kababs, you can also shallow fry them.
