Chicken Seekh Kabab
For good moist kabab please never use lean meat. Lean meat hard chewy kabab. If you have got lean meat, add some fat or oil into it. Thigh fillet has bit fat and more moist, so thigh fillet is more preferable than breast fillet. For minced chicken it does not take long time, so don’t overcook. For Eid you can just make it before, skewer it, put refrigerator and cook it on Eid day. If you don’t like mint, use coriander leaves instead.
