Fried Chicken Kababs


This is such an easy to do recipe that it is kind of embarrassing to post. But the kababs were so good that it would be unfair not to do so.

I used a  ready made kebab powder as opposed to a home made one to make things easier. But just FYI, it is a mix of spices such as coriander powder, cumin powder, red chili powder and caraway seeds, lemon juice, plain flour and plenty of red colouring.

I guess I would prefer boneless meat to make the kababs. But on the plus side, I just love chewing on the bones.

And unlike normal kababs, I fried them in sizzling hot oil. The result was the juiciest and most succulent pieces of meat ever, each bite a treat.  And I thought they tasted just like the kababs we get at the Empire restaurants in Bangalore. 

Don't tell me that you are not tempted to make them even now.


700 grams chicken pieces (you can use chicken wings, or legs or whatever you please)
50 grams chicken kabab powder
4 teaspoon garlic paste
2 teaspoons ginger paste
1 egg
Oil, to deep fry

Mix all the ingredients together and marinate for 10 to 20 minutes. There is no need to add water, chili powder or salt unless specifically mentioned on the kabab powder package instructions. In a wok, heat oil. Deep fry chicken pieces till cooked and scoop out of oil with a slotted spoon. Drain excess oil on absorbent papers. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
