Vegetable Seekh Kebab/Kabab

                                                               Seekh Kababs or Kebabs are usually made with minced meat and spices but this is a vegetarian Kebab made with mashed vegetables,spices and cashew nut powder and cooked in the similar way.If you have a Tandoor you can surely make it in that,otherwise you can bake it in the oven or grill it or you can simple toast it on a hot tawa.It is served with sliced onions lime juice and mint chutney with curd.All of us love Vegetable seekh Kebab and whenever we go out for dinner to a North Indian restaurant or Kebab place this kebab is our first choice!!!
