Paneer Seekh Kebab with Green Chutney


It is a common sight to see the Kebabs being skewed outside restaurants or in open shop markets. Though I get tempted to eat, my hubby’s advice and preference shuns me from it for we are pure vegetarians. In most of the veg-only hotels, we usually get cutlets but not Kebabs. In star hotels, we get doubts about the skewer they use and also the Oil that is fried in. Though we can see separate kitchens there, hubby does not prefer to eat there. This is the case for many people like me. Many of my friends who are non-vegetarians also doubt the hygiene in open shops or hotels. This is one item we should take care of while eating out. The oil used for frying and the shelf life of dairy products cooked. Hence I wish to make most of the items and home. For the ones I don’t know how to make, I google or learn from friends, cookery classes, and elsewhere.

This dish Paneer Seekh Kebab can be made when you have guests visiting home for tea time or sometimes when kids gather up for a snack get-together. Anyways, kids need Calcium to grow for which Paneer helps a lot and Potatoes also give a good amount of carbohydrates. The other ingredients used here are also good for health. Cashew nuts can be avoided if you are too fat-conscious. Just to remember “Any item too much is bad for health, moderate is always good”.

The recipe is quite simple. People usually have Potatoes at home as an emergency vegetable. Just need to buy Paneer. Buy fresh and branded Paneer for guaranteed shelf life. Grate the Paneer, and keep it aside. Boil and mash the Potatoes, mix all the other ingredients along with grated paneer, and prepare the dough. Take a wet skewer; fix Paneer dough in a cylindrical shape over it. Repeat this process for the remaining skewers and shallow fry them in a non-stick flat pan.

You can choose to deep fry them with more quantity of oil. If you don’t have Skewers at home, use a toothpick. Shaping the Kebab is your choice. You can make a round shape like you would for Patties for which you don’t need skewers or toothpicks. Paneer Seekh Kebab is best served with Green Chutney. Tomato Sauce can also be used for dipper. That is it, friends, try making it at home and enjoy this hot Paneer Seekh Kebab in the rainy and winter seasons.
