Chicken seekh kabab, made using minced form of chicken with spices mixing into the the chicken mince, fixing the chicken mix to kabab sticks and cooking in a pan.

Today, I have come up with another interesting recipe that is seekh kabab also spelled as sheek kabab for my viewers to try it out and not to worry since this recipe does not require any tandoor or barbecue set up and can easily be made in a pan or tawa.

Other interesting chicken recipes on the blog are chicken pakora, chicken masala, chicken biryani, dahi chicken, chicken do pyaza etc

Usually, seekh kabab is made out of meat but today I have made this yummy and tasty starter recipe using boneless chicken which is blended and minced well.

This is a very good starter recipe for the auspicious month of Ramadan and can be easily made at home and it also does not take too much time to get cooked like mutton seekh kabab.

This recipe of mine is cooked from both inside and out and I often have come across seekh kababs which are not cooked well from inside but here though it is made in pan, it is well cooked from inside.

The technique is to fix the minced chicken well to the satay sticks and cooking each side until each side is well cooked. The sides need to be turned and have to be cooked well on each side.

Here, I have used kabab sticks commonly called as skewers or satay sticks which are basically used to cook kababs in oven, tandoor or a pan.

Satay sticks are easily available online or in super markets and are available in medium size and large as well.

I have used long satay sticks which I found easily in super markets… These satay sticks have to be soaked in water for about 30 minutes before cooking to avoid burning of the sticks while getting cooked.

The seekh kabab can be eaten plain or it tastes lip smacking if served with onion rings and lemon wedges… It also tastes good if served with chutney dips…

Sprinkle lemon all over the seekh kabab and serve to get a tangy touch to the kabab. Chicken seekh kabab is easy to cook as we use boneless chicken and the spices that are used are also basic that are handy at home.

Chicken seekh kabab can also be barbecued if there is a barbecue set up at home but if they are placed on a barbecue then one should use skewers to make them on a barbecue and do not use satay sticks while doing barbecue.

The recipe is quite simple and should definitely be tried during special occasions like Ramzan or Eid or any other occasion.

It can be made as evening snacks or starters and served to guests during gatherings as well. This can be served with parathas too.

Check out the recipe below which has chicken seekh kabab written in detail and also a video procedure is shared to help my blog readers understand it in a much better manner.

  9. Apply oil over the palm.
  10. Take a portion of the chicken dough.
  11. Apply the chicken dough to the sticks and spread evenly in a long cylindrical shape.
  12. Similarly, keep applying oil to the palm and make rest of the seekh kababs.

2. The same chicken mix and be applied to skewers and then barbecued if there is a barbecue set up at home.
3. Soaking of satay sticks in water for at least half an hour is very essential before using them in cooking the kababs.
4. There should not be any water in the chicken while blending. Make sure there is no water in the chicken by straining it for a while. The kababs cannot be given a proper shape if there is water present in the chicken.
5. The same procedure can be used to make mutton seekh kababs as well.

Aloo paratha is a traditional punjabi cuisine commonly eaten for breakfasts and they are usually in the form of pancakes made using whole wheat flour.

Parathas is a staple punjabi food and they are usually made using various vegetables like mooli, carrot, beetroot, cabbage, gobi, methi etc…

Other paratha recipes to be enjoyed from the blog are methi paratha, egg paratha, beetroot paratha.

These are stuffed parathas but paratha can be made plain without any veggies… Parathas have layers to them and they can be eaten with vegetable side dish or just chutneys made out of vegetables too…

Other potato recipe that are popular on the blog are potato curry, aloo sabzi, aloo bhaji, aloo pakora, potato fry etc…

 They are served by applying ghee all over the parathas and the side dish that is preferred for parathas is curd/raita/yogurt.

They are commonly called by the name aloo ka paratha or potato paratha. Paratha is usually made by stuffing vegetables mixture into the dough.

Dough is mainly made using wheat flour and any cooked vegetable mixture is stuffed inside the dough. The dough is sealed well and made into a round chapati shaped paratha.

The paratha is then cooked well on both sides by applying ghee/oil/butter.

Here, in this post I have made aloo paratha by boiling the potatoes, peeling them and making the potato filling by adding few basic spices into it.

The spices that need to be added are not compulsory and altered according to our choice and preference. Here I have used very minimal spices and made it very light and tasty.

The parathas are very popular all across punjab. They can also be served using pickles too. Here I have also shown a video procedure to make them and also in detail with written steps.

Below in the video I have shown two methods of making parathas where I have sealed the potato stuffed paratha in two ways and any method can be followed to make them.

Both the methods are easy if instructions are followed carefully and still have queries do not hesitate to comment below in the comment box.

Samosa is a cone shaped or triangle shaped snack recipe stuffed with aloo matar stuffing and is the most popular evening snack throughout India…

I have shared a video procedure below to show how to make a cone shaped samosa with detail steps.

other snacks recipes on the blog are onion samosa, namak pare, bread roll, mirchi bajji, punugulu, mysore bonda, rava dosa, palak pakoda, cabbage pakoda, onion pakoda, bread pakoda, moong dal vada, poha recipe etc…

This simple cone shaped snack needs a little bit of practice as the dough is not a readymade sheet and its made at home using maida.

Also check out other aloo recipes on the blog such as aloo sabzi, aloo jeera, aloo kurma, aloo baingan etc…

The maida dough is made with the help of ghee, salt, water and the dough should be kneaded soft for perfect samosas…

This goes perfectly as an evening snack recipe… This is the most relished snack with a hot cup of tea during winter evenings or during rains…

This cone shaped snack is a favorite of all. The aloo snack is a crispy cone shaped maida snack filled with light stuffing…

It is a snack recipe that actually has emerged from punjab.

Samosas are of various types like onion samosa, veg samosa, aloo samosa etc… where different stuffings go inside them.

The snack is given a perfect shape and later deep fried in oil which can be served with any chutney or any dips…Mainly they are accompanied with hot hot tea…

The feel of eating samosas during rains with tea is an amazing feeling and its fun to enjoy them while watching the heavy rains…

Aloo samosa or punjabi samosa is also the most popular street food found across India. Every street corner sells these samosas in the form of onion samosa or aloo samosa…

Kids love to have these as evening snacks and they also prefer these snacks to be packed in their boxes and enjoy with friends…

Mini parties too are incomplete without these snacks.

Since Ramadan is around the corner, I would love to post some iftar snacks recipes that are suitable for this auspicious month and something we usually prefer to make it…

One can make various stuffing and fill with those stuffings such as vegetable stuffing, keema stuffing etc… Here, in this recipe I have made aloo stuffing.

Aloo in this stuffing is first boiled, peeled and then mashed. The mashed aloo is then stir fried in some spices and herbs…

Below are the recipe details shared to make this street food style samosa with aloo matar stuffing…

Chicken spring rolls recipe, an indo chinese snack recipe in which chicken stuffing is filled inside a spring roll sheet, rolled and deep fried.

Chicken spring roll here is made keeping in mind the month of Ramadan where we need many snacks recipes and ideas to make during the month of ramadan.

There are already many chicken recipes on my blog such as chilli chicken, chicken biryani recipe, chicken masala, chicken keema, chicken biryani in cooker etc…

It is a very auspicious month and I would like my viewers to go through this recipe for special iftar snacks recipes as it is one of the best recipes that can be made for ramadan.

To make spring rolls we need vegetable stuffing and chicken added into it. I have shared the procedure of stuffing as well as the procedure to make chicken spring rolls sheets.

If one is looking forward to make curries using non veg rather than snacks then do try mutton curry, hyderabadi chicken curry

Important points to make chicken spring rolls:

  1. Here, in this recipe I have made home made spring rolls sheets, these can be made at home quite easily but I would also suggest that these sheets are readily available in markets and need not spend lots of time in making spring roll sheets at home.
  2.  In this recipe, the spring rolls are dipped in beaten egg and coated with bread crumbs but this step is completely optional if one buys ready made sheets to make chicken spring rolls.
  3. The sheets that are made at home have to be made very carefully and there are chances of the sheet breaking while stuffing and sealing.
  4. If one is making them in Ramadan, I would suggest to buy the sheets from grocery stores and then just make chicken stuffing or vegetable stuffing at home, add the stuffing into the sheets, fold and seal them and they are ready to be deep fried.

Chicken spring rolls is a wonderful snack delicacy and one should learn the art of folding and sealing the spring roll sheet and if this art is learnt, it is easy to make spring rolls be it veg or non veg.

I have made spring rolls for the very first time and they turned out very well and shall soon be uploading other spring rolls like veg spring rolls as well.

There are also few other recipes on the blog that are suitable to be made during the month of ramadan like samosa, chicken cutlet , chicken pakora etc…

This is an Indo chinese snack recipe where I have made some variations to the recipe such as dipping in egg and coating the roll with bread crumbs.

This is a deep fried snack recipe where it takes in lots of oil and one should strain the rolls out before eating as the rolls will have absorbed lots of oil.

It is better to use an absorbent paper such as tissue paper and place the rolls on the sheets for a while until all the oil from the spring roll is absorbed. Doing so helps in removing excess oil from the rolls completely.

Here, the chicken is first boiled with water, chicken and turmeric water. The chicken is then shredded and used in the stuffing by making use of some shredded veggies, cooking them along with chicken and sauces.

The stuffing should be focussed well as the rolls are totally tasted delicious only if the cooked stuffing is yummy.

Below are the recipe details on how to make chicken spring roll recipe with chicken stuffing and home made sheets with detail steps and also a video procedure for a better understanding.

I would suggest my viewers to please watch the video as the recipe goes in 2 to 3 steps and every step has to be watched carefully to get proper spring rolls.

Do check out the video and do leave us your feedback on this recipe and do leave your comments below in the comment section if there are any queries…

Chicken biryani in cooker, a special biryani rice recipe made using chicken and the technique that I have used here is a pressure cooker one.

Making chicken biryani in pressure cooker is easy but we need to follow few tips to get an amazing biryani that does not turn out soggy and also gives us a delicious taste.

Surprisingly, I have posted many biryani related recipes on the blog in both vegetarian and non vegetarian areas and some of the biryani recipes in non veg section are mutton biryani, hyderabadi chicken dum biryani, hyderabadi mutton biryani, ambur mutton biryani, ambur chicken biryani, mutton dum biryani, chicken biryani recipe etc…

I would like my viewers to try out these recipes and do share us your opinions and views on these recipes…

I have made pressure cooker biryani recipes several times and they can be prepared quickly, instantly and with ease.

Of course, dum style of biryani recipes are the best but this way of making pressure cooker biryani too is a great option when one is in a hurry and would like to pack something interesting for their lunch boxes.

Making dum method biryani does take time and one can make them only during special occasions, functions and gatherings.

This kind of biryani can be made anytime that is for lunch or dinner and can easily be served with raita be it onion raita or cucumber raita and served with joy…

However, there are few tips to be followed while making these biryani recipes in cooker and mainly the tips are connected to kind of rice and quantity of water one is supposed to use in given proportion.

Follow the below instructions carefully:

If we use aged basmati rice: 

  • If one uses aged basmati rice to make biryani in pressure cooker, then soaking of the rice for atleast 20 minutes before using is a better option.
  • When we are using aged basmati rice the quantity of rice and water should be in 1:2 ratio. That is if we use 1 cup of rice then we need to use 2 cups of water.
  • If there is some water in the gravy then, we have to reduce one cup water while adding water.
  • In this recipe I have used 3 cups rice and 5 cups water that is because there is already around 1 cup water in the gravy so I have made it as 5 cups water instead of 6 cups water.

If using freshly manufactured basmati rice:

  • Do not soak the rice, directly wash and add the rice and regarding water usage, for 2 cups rice add 2.5 to 3 cups of water.

If sona masoori rice is used/ normal rice:

  • We do not need to soak the rice and even if soaked, it has to be soaked for not more than 10 minutes.
  • For aged sona masoori rice maintain the ratio of rice and water as 1:2 that is for 1 cup rice, add 2 cups of water.
  • For freshly manufactured rice maintain the rice and water ratio to 1:0.5 that is for 1 cup rice, add 1/2 cup water.

If there is water in the gravy adjust water as per requirement and also keeping in mind kind of rice is used that is aged/old or freshly manufactured rice…

If we keep the above things in mind pressure cooker biryani never turns soggy.

However, it is not necessary to make biryani with basmati rice always, It turns out equally good with ordinary rice as well.

Here, the biryani is made in normal south indian style method that is I have made use of onions, tomatoes and yogurt to make the chicken biryani in cooker.

I have made the gravy using onions, tomatoes, curd and then mixed the soaked rice into the gravy, added water and pressure cooked using aromatic spices and green herbs.

Below is the recipe on how to make easy chicken biryani in cooker recipe using pressure cooker method with step by step details.

Here, I have used a branded basmati rice and one need not worry if this rice is not handy. This biryani can be tried using ordinary rice too…

I highly suggest you to not get confused and use ordinary rice that is available at home and make amazing biryani and I personally prefer to make pressure cooker biryani using normal rice regularly but today for the video I am using basmati rice and made this chicken biryani in cooker…

Very soon I shall be uploading the video of making chicken biryani in cooker…

  1. Take a heavy bottom pressure cooker, add oil and heat it.
  2. Add whole garam masala such as cloves, cardamoms, cinnamon and shahi zeera, saute well.
  3. Add slit green chillies, saute well.
  4. Add sliced onions and saute until onions turn slight brown.
  5. Add ginger garlic paste and saute for few minutes to get rid of raw smell.
  6. Add the cleaned and washed chicken into the cooker, mix well.
  7. Roast the chicken for few minutes and keep stirring in between.
  8. Roast the chicken until it changes its color.
  9. Add salt as per taste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, mix well.
  10. Cook this masala for few minutes on low flame and until oil starts leaving the sides.
  11. Add the chopped tomatoes, mix well and cook until the tomatoes get soft.
  12. Whisk or beat the yogurt well and add into the chicken.
  13. Mix all the ingredients well.
  14. Cook this chicken gravy for 4-5 minutes on low flame.
  15. Add the garam masala powder, kali mirch powder, coriander leaves, mint leaves, mix well.
  16. Add 5 cups of water since there is already around 1 cup of water present in the curry.
  17. Add the soaked basmati rice into it.
  18. Mix everything well.
  19. At this step, add salt as per requirement, taste it and add more if required.
  20. Mix up everything.
  21. Cover the lid of the pressure cooker.
  22. Pressure cook the biryani for 4-5 whistles on high flame.
  23. Reduce the steam completely.
  24. Carefully remove the lid of the pressure cooker.
  25. Check the biryani and allow it to cool down.
  26. Serve the biryani.
  27. Enjoy it with raita.
Important points:
1. I have used aged/old basmati rice.
2. Sometimes, if the basmati rice is not aged/old, the rice turns out soggy. In such cases do not soak the basmati rice and use it as soon as you wash the rice.
3. I highly recommend using aged normal sona masoori rice as we are making pressure cooker biryani and while making these kind of biryani recipes the basmati rice dominates all the flavors of the biryani and just leaves the aroma of basmati rice.
4. Instead use plain rice which is old and I highly suggest using sona masoori rice for making special rice delicacies...mainly for pressure cooking rice recipes.
5. Use a non stick pressure cooker so that the biryani does not burn at the bottom while pressure cooking....

Rava dosa is a dosa made apart from regular dosas like onion dosa, masala dosa etc… It is unlike other dosas as it is made instantly and quick and is a very quick recipe.

Other dosa recipes or breakfast recipes on the blog:

Rava dosa is not made using dosa batter but the main ingredient in making the recipe is the sooji/semolina/rava as they are usually called.

Check out other recipes:

There are plenty of dosas that are usually made and this is one of the various dosas that is made often.

Rava dosa can be made instantly to serve the kids as an evening snack or for their breakfasts and it can be served with any chutney of our choice like green chilli chutney, tomato picklegroundnut chutney etc…

To make this rava dosa we need rava/semolina, rice flour to give the crisp texture and maida/all purpose flour along with few spices and herbs like cumin seeds, green chillies, salt, finely chopped onions and then making a pouring consistency batter by adding water and pouring the dosa batter onto the tawa…

This can be served as a morning breakfast or it can also be served as an evening snack if we are running short of time…

This dosa is also referred to as onion rava dosa or sooji dosa in common terms… This kind of rava dosa can be made in various ways and today here in this post I am sharing one of the various ways of making rava dosa.

When we are making rava dosa batter, we can’t prepare it as we make the batter for a regular dosa recipe which requires soaking the dosa batter ingredients, blending them into a paste and then fermenting it for many hours…

It can just be prepared instantly if the main ingredients like rava, rice flour, maida, curd are available at home. This batter need not be soaked as a regular batter and can be easily given to kids as their breakfast recipe or as an instant evening snack recipe.


We have to be careful while making the batter since this is a dosa batter and the batter has to be made of thin consistency which can be easily dropped on the tawa. This is not a regular dosa batter which can be easily spread on the tawa in circular motion.

Since this is an instant batter, we make a very thin batter using water and curd and has to be of pouring consistency which can be easily taken in a ladle and dropped on the tawa. This dosa batter can’t be spread on the tawa and never attempt to spread it.

Below are the recipe details for onion rava dosa which is healthy, yummy and quick. Also do check out the video procedure for rava dosa which would help my blog readers to understand its making procedure in a better way….

Dosa Batter Recipe is a batter mostly used to make plain dosa or masala dosa all across South India or North India.

Watch these video recipes for more help:

           South Indian breakfasts like dosa, idli and poori were quite popular in south india but now their popularity has been increasing world wide.

Other indian breakfast recipes that are quite popular are mysore bonda or mysore bajji, tomato ricemango rice, lemon rice, pulihora, aloo poha, kanda poha, punugulu etc…

                 I always had on mind to post this article on making dosa batter and finally I am posting the secrets on making a delicious restaurant style dosa making procedure recipe.

              We always try to get perfect dosas but despite many attempts we don’t get perfect dosas and if this article is followed well then one can easily make hotel style dosa or south indian style dosa at home be it a plain dosa or masala dosa or onion dosa with this batter.

Making dosa batter is a long process but is worth when we get the perfect dosa and it tastes best when eaten with certain chutneys like onion tomato chutney, green chilli chutney, coconut chutney, peanut chutney .

                  It requires a few ingredients but when the batter is ready it is very important to ferment the batter for a long time.

Points to be noted while making dosa batter:

1. The ratio of rice and urad dal(mina pappu/black gram) should always be 2:1.

2.Adding few fenugreek seeds and few chana dal into them gives the golden color that we look for in making dosa.

3.The ingredients need to be soaked for a long time i.e atleast for 7-8 hours.

4.When the ingredients are soaked and blended, the batter should again be fermented for another 7-8 hours.

5.Always use a good non stick tawa to make dosa.

6.Do not use tawas on which rotis are made as the dosa made on such tawa might stick to the bottom of the tawa.

7.Always use a ladle to make dosa which give out a perfectly circular shape dosas.

Mutton curry recipe is a non veg curry made using basic curry ingredients like onions and tomato puree with a gravy texture to the curry.

It is made in a simple procedure adding a gravy form to it so that it is best when eaten with chapati or rice.

I often make this mutton recipe which is quite delicious and is very juicy in flavors. I usually try out several mutton recipes in fry version or curry or with rice and all the recipes made using mutton come out very well.

I have already shared some popular mutton recipes on the blog such as haleem, mutton paya soup, mutton biryani, hyderabadi mutton biryani, mutton gravy, mutton masala, mutton fry etc…

Mutton should be carefully chosen while making mutton recipes as fresh meat tastes good. The meat has to be red and should smell fresh.

Usually mutton is slow cooked to get the real taste but since we all of us have a busy life it can also be made easier and cooked in different techniques and one such common method is the pressure cooking technique.

Pressure cookers have become our simplest form of cooking techniques and everything can be cooked in them with ease and quickly.

The taste too does not change much and gives the taste equivalent to the slow cooked method.

This mutton curry that I have made today and posted tastes better than any restaurant curry and it gives real juicy flavors and has pleasant aroma of the methi in it.

The recipe of mine has been tried and tested many times and finally I get to post it on my blog for my readers to read the procedure, make it and have a good time with their family members.

This is one of the best mutton recipes on the blog as it tastes best with simple or plain pulao and which is a good option to make during several occasions like festivals and small ceremonies.

Whenever someone visits my home, we usually make a simple pulao recipe and make few curries and I make sure to make this mutton curry which is a best accompaniment with pulao recipes.

There are also several other mutton curries which can be cooked with different versions in several regions and also can be made by adding many more masalas and hopefully would be adding one by one as I keep updating.

This is the simplest form of the curry which is the perfect curry that anyone could easily try and serve their family members.

I have many more mutton recipes on the blog and also several mutton biryani recipes that can be tried and few have video procedures too for my viewers to understand it in a more better way.

Below is the mutton curry recipe that can be made in either slow cooking method or pressure cooking method and both give us the same taste.
