Chicken seekh kebab is a popular dish in Indian and Pakistani cuisine made with minced chicken that is mixed with various spices and then shaped onto skewers before being grilled or cooked in a pan. The word “seekh” means skewer, and the kebab is named after the long metal skewers that the meat is threaded onto. The minced chicken mixture is typically made with a variety of spices, including ginger, garlic, coriander, cumin, and chili powder, giving it a flavorful and aromatic taste (garlic can be avoided to make it low FODMAP). Chicken seekh kebab is often served with various accompaniments such as rice, naan bread, and chutney or raita.
