Chicken Cheese & Fish Tikka Kebabs(Guest Post by Vishal !!)


Fellow wonderful bloggers, so far you have read recipes made and written by me, Amrita, and I believe you have known that this blog is a foodie journey started by me and my better half Vishal. He has been cooking for family and has been creating such amazing dishes that I have been begging him to post about them but his busy schedule always got the better of him. These Kebabs were made by Vishal for our daughter Vaanya's 18 month birthday party. Without any bias, I must admit they were loved and licked off to the last pieces!! On great insistence, I am so glad, I made him finally write on our blog. Please welcome him with your big heart. Over to hubby...(oh and sorry for the not so great pics as they weren't really clicked for the blog)

It is such a pleasure for me to see the blog that we as husband-wife duo created to where it stands now. It gives us more excitement to only fathom where it could go from here. All of the credit in the blog goes to my wonderful wife who has been so dedicated and enthusiastic to share our culinary experience and yes, behind the scene, she has made a lot of effort that has been more or less an out of the way sequel rather than a comfortable routine to put all of this together. So a big cheers to her.

This was a special occasion for me to cook as Amrita's wonderful parents, her brother and his wife were scheduled to come over for dinner. Everyone loved the kebabs so I reckoned to share it on the blog. They were very quick and very easy.My mother in Allahabad surprised us by gifting us a wonderful electric tandoor. So we made the most of it.


Chicken Cheese Kebabs (Amma's Recipe)

Ingredients:

  • 300 gms boneless Chicken cut in bite size pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp garlic-ginger-green chilli paste
  • 2 tbsp hung curd
  • 1/4 cup grated cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh cream
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric/haldi powder
  • salt to taste

Procedure:
Wash chicken pieces and take in a bowl. 
Add all the ingredients and mix well.
Leave to marinade for 2 hours(preferably)
Soak some wooden skewers in water for half an hour or so. 
Preheat oven/tandoor to more than 200 degrees Celsius.
Gently push each chicken piece into the wooden skewers.
Put them in a foil lined tray in the oven/tandoor.
Baste the chicken in oil/ ghee after two minutes or so in the oven and put it back again.
Cook for 4-6 mins or till chicken gets cooked well with a nice brown tinge.



Fish Tikka Kebabs

Although the Calcutta Bhetki is best suited for this, you can try this on any other fish.

Ingredients:
  • 500gms Bhetki fillet cut into bite size cubes
  • 2 tbsp fresh garlic paste
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp red chili powder
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper Powder
  • salt to taste
  • Green Capsicum Cut into cubes
  • Lettuce leaves, Onion slices, Lime wedges (to garnish)
Procedure:
Clean and cut the fish fillet into bite size cubes.
Mix all the ingredients together except the ones to garnish.
Leave it to marinade for two hours (preferably).
Soak some wooden skewers in water for half an hour or so. 
Preheat oven/tandoor to more than 200 degrees Celsius.
Gently push each fish cube into the wooden skewers, alternating them with green capsicum pieces. 
Put them in a foil lined tray in the oven/tandoor.
Baste the fish in oil/ ghee after two minutes or so in the oven and put it back again.
Fish cooks very fast so give it around 3-4 minutes to cook.


Rest the kebab for a couple of minutes before serving them garnished with onion slices, lemon and fresh lettuce leaves.

Sending this recipe to 60 days to Christmas

Happy Kebab eating
Vishal
