How are Kebabs prepared?

Kebabs are usually prepared with minced meat, marinated for a couple of hours then arranged on skewers and traditionally cooked over hot coals, fire or barbeque. However, these days kebabs can also be cooked in an oven, a pan or even in an air fryer.

When I think of Kebabs, the first dish that comes to my mind is Chicken Kebabs which are full of flavors, so delicious and the wonderful aroma while you’re cooking these, makes you even more hungry.

Lasooni Chicken Malai Kebabs are an enhanced version of chicken kebabs with my twist of lasooni (garlic) tadka enriched with some malai (cream) to add an extra kick. These kebabs are tender, juicy and full of flavor.

Today, everyone wants something easy, quick yet delicious. So here I am yet again, with my amazing recipe for Lasooni Chicken Malai Kebabs.

Lasooni Chicken Malai Kebabs Recipe


For Chicken Mince mixture

  • 1 bowl (1/2 kg) minced chicken
