Seekh kebabs are considered a legacy of the rich culinary heritage of Awadhi cuisine, and traditionally consisted of minced lamb skewered on a tandoor. In more modern times, the seekh has come to include minced chicken and more variants,  as well as vegetarian versions. Seekh kebabs are also quite popular in Iran and Mediterannean nations where its rolled in a naan or a pita bread and had like doner kebab.  In India, its commonly eaten rolled in a thin roomali roti, and served with a fresh mint chutney and onions.

Kanak, the Indian speciality restaurant of Trident Hyderabad is doing a seekh kebabs promo for dinner until June 3rd and it was a pleasure to be part of a special preview.

The first seekh to arrive on our plates was the tangy Aloo Anardaane ki Seekh, which was of melt in the mouth consistency. But the second one, Matar Moongphalli ki Seekh was more impressive, because of its slightly crunchy texture and with the boiled\mashed green peas adding their bit of softness.

But the real stuff was yet to come. First on, Murgh Gilafi Hara Pyaaz was a chicken mince skewer tossed in spring onion, mint, coriander and ginger..light and refreshing.
