Ground poultry roasted on a stick-what more could you ask for? From “The Indian Menu Planner”. Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2005.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you are using wooden or bamboo skewers, soak them in water per package directions to prevent splintering or burning.
  2. Beat the eggs, cumin, chili powder, pepper and oil together. Mix in the ground meat and let sit for 10 min minimum.
  3. Mix together the cashews, ginger, onion, coriander and garam masala. Work this mixture into the meat mixture, and divide the meat into 10 pieces.
  4. With wet hands, wrap two portions of meat along each skewer, leaving 2 inches between portions.
  5. Roast the kebabs on a grill for about 6 min, in a oven set at 300 degrees for 8 min, or in a rotisserie until golden brown.
  6. When done, remove the skewers and baste with melted butter.

These were nice but there are a few downsides. They didn't mold well to the sticks, and I would have spiced it more heavily. My dinner guests liked it, I served this with a lentil curry and samosa dish and it actually ended up being the mildest. Thanks for the recipe.

These were good. I didn't add cashews as I don't like them.

These were neat! My sons gobbled them up! That is a rarity for my one son. I also had a hard time getting them to stay on the sticks. I used soaked bamboo skewers and I think that the wood helped the meat kind of "stick" a bit better. My sons were excited about meatloaf on a stick! Then they bit into it and said, "This isn't meatloaf... it's BETTER!" We will make these again and maybe add something else to give it a bit more substance. Probably try the old stand by of cracker crumbs or oatmeal. Thanks for the recipe!
