Seekh Kabab Handi

Seekh Kabab Handi

      " Seekh kababs " are the succulent  kebabs made from minced meat, herbs and spices which are put on the skewers and grilled till golden brown. I had posted the recipe earlier, for recipe Click Here
     I had made those kebabs numerous times but just as a starter and never thought of using it in curry, but when I invited my friends for an in-house party at my home , it got me thinking to make something different than I usually cook and wanted to woe my guests with some different and unusual yet easy to make and delicious preparation .
            I had come across this dish through youtube and found it very interesting, thought of trying it and it came out so delicious that I prepared it again over on Eid.
    I made it from frozen  seekh kebab due to time constraint  but seekh kabab can be made a day before or can be made using  readymade frozen ones. Its made in Handi or clay pot which gives a very unique earthen flavor to the dish ,but can be prepared in normal pan as well.
