Easy Chicken Tikka Kabab (Step by Step Pictures)


ramadan recipes for iftar

Chicken Tikka Kabab is a recipe by Chef Shireen Anwar, she made last days in her program. When she was making these delish kabab I was thinking these are same like I often made with mince stuffing in Iftar time.

I decided to give a try to this recipe with chicken and cheese filling.  Chicken Tikka Kababs are really absolutely divine in taste and melt in mouth.

I told my many friends about this recipe with mince filling and I noticed they got confuse about its binding. That’s why I am sharing three pictures so you can understand how you can give shape of kabab.
