Mince the chicken. Grind all ingredients together except eggs and salt. Mix in the eggs and salt. Shape into sausages, put on skewers and cook over charcoal fire or in rotisserie until tender. Garnish with onions and lemon.

 
Tikya Kabab
Ingredients:
    1 oz (25 g) channa dhal, split
    8 oz (225 g) fatless stewing steak
    1 brown cardamom, ground
    1/2 large onion, chopped
    1 bay leaf
    1 inch (2.5 cm) fresh ginger, chopped
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper,
    1 large clove garlic, chopped
    salt to taste
    1/2 teaspoon paprika
    ghee or oil
    1/2 teaspoon garam masala
    1 egg yolk
    1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander or parsley
    fine breadcrumbs

Directions:
Soak the dhal overnight, then boil in twice its volume of water. Strain off any excess water. Put the meat, onion, ginger, garlic and spices through a mincer. Mix well and add salt to taste. Add the dhal to the mixture, and fry in a little ghee for 20 minutes. Add a *little* water if it dries up too much. Leave aside for about 3 hours or overnight to thicken and dry. The next day, or when ready, add the egg yolk, and, if it doesn’t hold together, add gram flour to thicken or water to thin. Add fresh coriander or parsley. For Seekh Kebabs roll mixture in breadcrumbs to sausage shapes. Skewer them and cook over charcoal (best), under the grill, or fry in a frying pan. For Shami Kebabs, roll into balls, coat in breadcrumbs and deep-fry.

 
Vindaloo
Ingredients:
    Meat 1 lb
    Vinegar 2 tbsp
    Coriander paste 1 tsp
    Cumin paste 1/2 tsp
    Turmeric 1 tsp
    Mustard 1/2 tsp
    Chili powder 2 tsp
    Black pepper 1/2 tsp
    Diced onions 1/4 cup
    Diced garlic 1 tsp
    Green chili 3
    Salt 1 tsp
    Oil 1/4 cup

Directions:
In hot oil, stir fry the onions and garlic. Add the spices and vinegar and stir fry for 5 minutes in medium-high heat. Add the meat and cooked covered in medium heat until meat is tender. You might wish to evaporate excess water.

 
Chicken Makhani
Ingredients:
    2 pounds of (bony) chicken
    1 cup yogurt (dahi)
    1″ piece of ginger
    8 cloves garlic
    2 tbs lime juice
    4″ stick of cinnamon
    8 cloves
    8 cardamoms
    10 black peppercorns
    1 tbs oil
    2 1/4 pounds tomatoes
    1 tsp. dried fenugreek leaves (optional)
    1 tbs. white pepper powder (essential)
    1 ounce cream (optional but recommended for a touch of class)
    1 !!pound!! butter. You can get away with 0.6 lb if 1 lb is too much.
    salt to taste if you use yellow butter, then scale down the salt accordingly. If you use white butter, then you will need more salt.
    coriander (cilantro): optional topping.

Directions:
1.clean chicken and remove the skin

2.make a smooth paste of yogurt, garlic, ginger, lime juice, cinnamon, cloves, cardamoms, peppercorns and the oil. Marinate the chicken in this for 6 hours.

3.Bake the chicken in a preheated oven for 10 minutes at 250 F (130 C). Put it aside. It kind of makes sense to finish steps 1-3 before starting step 4.

4.We need to get a tomato sauce. Cut tomatoes, put ‘em in a pan (no water) and boil. When the quantity has dropped by half, strain through a fine sieve. What comes out of the sieve is the tomato sauce. (This is hard work with a clumsy sieve).

5.Take a pan, start heating the sauce, add the butter. When the butter is melted, add the white pepper powder, salt, fenugreek leaves and cream.

6.Mix the chicken pieces into this sauce. You may like chopped coriander (cilantro) as topping. Serve hot. This works best with good rice (i.e. basmati).

Comments

If you don’t like struggling with chicken bones, this recipe works perfectly with boneless chicken. You need to estimate how much boneless chicken to use: I guess 2 pounds of chicken is around 1.25 pounds of boneless chicken.

Comments

Among the fishes available in a typical grocery store, catfish is best suited for Do-peAjA. Shrimp is great too.
