Prep Time  Cook Time Serves
 50 Min  20 Min 2 – 3


  • 500 Grams Boneless Chicken Breast Cut into Cubes
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Green Chillies
  • 1/2 Tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 Tsp Black Pepper Powder
  • 1 Tsp Cumin Powder
  • 4 Tbsp Chopped Coriander
  • 1 Tsp Ginger Paste
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Paste
  • 8 Almonds Blanched and Peeled then Crushed to a Powder
  • 2 Tbsp Heavy Cooking Cream
  • 1-2 Slices Bread Crust Removed
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

Cooking Directions

  1. Clean and pat dry the chicken cubes. Grind the onion, remove and squeeze out all the excess water. Put the onion back in the processor and add in the salt, crushed almonds, chillies, coriander, lemon juice, ginger and garlic pastes. Grind to combine and form a smooth mixture. Next add the chicken cubes and process until the texture is smooth.
  2. Turn this mixture out into a bowl. In the same machine, add the 2 slices of bread (make sure to remove the crust) and grind to form crumbs, set aside.
  3. To the chicken mixture, add the garam masala powder, cumin powder, black pepper and the cooking cream, plus half of the crushed bread. Combine well. If the mixture feels too sticky, add in the remaining bread and mix. Cover and refrigerate for the flavours to develop and to help the bread absorb any excess moisture which will help with the shaping.
  4. When ready to cook, remove the chicken mixture and shape on skewers. Grill or pan fry in a light drizzle of oil until cooked through, for about 3-4 minutes per side or until done. Brush them with melted butter just before serving.
  5. Serve with accompaniments of your choice. These kababs keep well and can be frozen for up to 2 weeks.
