After my very popular peshawari kadhai, let me introduce you to another finger licking good Seekh kabab kadhai.

Some effort is needed to make these kababs but at the end its worthwhile. For those who don't know, seekh kababs are the long cylinder shaped kababs made on a seekh(rod) on a bbq. 

First, you have to make the kababs and fry them.
