Sunday Funday – Kebab Special

Remember the Sunday tradition I mentioned? About cooking up something meaty and rich in taste..that’s exactly what happened after the avocado full breakfast.

Kebab meal day for us 

It was super easy. I cooked it almost the same way as we cook our regular chicken curry with onion, just this time around I had tomato in the dish. And fortunately every time we go India we buy fresh chicken kebabs, which is later kept in the deep freezer till needed. It survives a long time. Also, this saves us time from actually making the kebab (grilled/skewered minced meat).

If you don’t have kebab, it’s fine, you can use grilled chicken cut into smaller pieces, just would need a good marinade! Anyhow let me quickly show you what’s needed for this dish 🙂


  • 4-6 Kebabs
  • 2 chopped big Red Onions
  • 3-4 chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons of Cumin Seeds
  • 1 teaspoons of Asafoetida (soaked in water)
  • 1/2 teaspoons of Turmeric Powder
  • 2 teaspoons of Garam Masala
  • 2-3 tablespoons of Red Chilli Powder
  • 2 tablespoons of Coriander Powder
  • 2 teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder
  • 1 teaspoons of Salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Oil
  • 1-1.5 cup of Water
Unfrozen to room temperature Kebabs

  1. Chop the onions, tomatoes and fry the kebabs in oil till dark brown (cooked).
  2. Cut the kebabs in small pieces after cooling them and dabbing some oil off.
  3. Add oil, cumin seeds and asafoetida in the pan. Stir for 30-40 seconds. Then add the onion to sauté till golden brown.
  4. Onion once golden brown add salt and the chopped kebabs.
  5. Finally it’s time to season the kebab with Turmeric powder, Garam Masala, Coriander Powder, Red Chili Powder and Cinnamon Powder. Mix well!
  6. Time to add the chopped tomatoes. Stir fry for 1 minute then add water allowing kebab to get more taste. NOTE: Gravy is always good 🙂


Keep a lid on for 5-6 minutes. Watch the water level and stir in between.

Kebab special was ready but I had to wait 45 minutes till my hunger actually kicked in! I wanted to be fully ready and hungry to hog it up! It was so damn good, that my dad actually said “Acha bana hai” (translation- It tastes good). Any appreciation from my dad makes a huge difference, because he’s the silent kind. 🙂

It’s time you relish this kebab dish too. Until next time..
