Chicken Pahadi Kabab

Now this recipe isn't exactly the one for chicken pahadi kabab. I have added a few spices to the mix which I think have added to the flavour.

Ingredients:300gms boneless chicken.
few sprigs of mint leaves pudina
few sprigs of coriander
2 green chilies
1/2 tsp red chili powder
3/4 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp cumin seeds
3-4 tbsp malai or cream
5-6 almonds
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp kalonji or onion seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds

Grind all the spices together with the malai.

Marinate chicken in the spice paste for an hour.

Heat oil in a shallow pan and cook the chicken for 10-12 minutes while stirring occasionally.

Serve with naan, roti or bread.


  1. Does it make any difference if we don't have kalonji?

    1. Hi Pam
      Well, kalonji or onion seeds will add a certain earthy flavour to the dish. It depends on whether or not you like it that way. I believe, adding subtracting a bit here and there to any recipe will let you discover a new flavour you enjoy. Hope this helps. Enjoy cooking :)
