Though this seekh kebab looks like a starter made wit extraordinary procedures and ingredients, on the contrary it is one of the best appetizers and easiest on made with pantry friendly dishes that requires less efforts. I learned to make this seekh kabab from my SIL long long back as she is the only internet junky at home 8 years back and I believe now all of us are for sure. We don’t make this at home often but for potlucks/ party we make sure as our friends love it as well very much. So sharing my knowledge on it and hope it will useful for all the beginners out there looking. So you guys surely will know why am I posting this recipe now, yes I heard u guys!! Its ramadan in few days and I thought to share this yummy recipe and make your ramadan/ party/ sunday feat a great one. 
In this post I have shared step by step pictures for both tawa cooked and oven bakes one and I shall admit one thing making on tawa is little more tastier than the oven baked. For this recipe I used chicken breasts as it is boneless and during the lockdown I had only chicken breast tender, but to make the kabab more juicy and tender you can use meat from chicken thighs which has double the fat content than the breast. So let’s get to the making!
