These Lamb Seekh Kebabs are not cooked in a tandoor oven, yet smoking, yet flavourful. Here is the secret to create that magic smoked flavour.

I have mixed all the normal dry spices and the wet spices like onion, green chilli, ginger, garlic, coriander, mint, etc. but how they are special is because I have given a ‘charcoal thadka’ to the mince after mixing all the spices. Watch me do it in this recipe and I am sure you will be dying to try this at home.

So friends, try and enjoy these Lamb Seekh Kebabs and don’t forget to share it with your friends and relies. After all, sharing is caring.
