Pan Grilled Veg Sheekh Kababs


 
I tried this recipe in my own way with leftover ingredients and turned out awesome.I can leave any non veg kabab and eat this veg sheekh kababs.It turns out delicious with very few ingredients.These kababs are healthy as it is pan grilled.You can even make in OTG or any grilled gadgets.You can prepare this before hand and just before any party or any gathering grill them and serve with this particular sauce or any other sauce of your choice.I made in grill pan so that it is easy to make and beginners can easily make this dish.

Ingredients 

Chick Peas 300gm-Soak it overnight.Then boil until soft.
Cornflour- 3 tbsp
Flour/Egg- 1tbsp or 1 egg
Onion 1 big- Chopped
Ginger chopped- 1 tp
Green chilles-chopped- 2 tbsp (or according to taste)
Chopped coriander- 1/2 bunch
Mint chopped-6 leaves
Dry mango powder-1 tp
Red chilli powder-1 tp (or according to taste)
Shahi Garam masala powder-1 tp
Coriander powder-1 tp
Cumin powder-1/2 tp
Salt to taste
White oil+Butter

Method

 Make paste of boiled chick peas without any water.Don't make a very fine paste.It is ok if you leave it a bit coarse.

Take it out in a bowl and add chopped onion,chopped ginger,chopped green chilles,chopped coriander,chopped mint leaves,salt,dry mango powder,red chilli powder,cumin powder,coriander powder,shahi garam masala powder and mix it very well with chick pea paste.Check your seasoning.

Now add cornflour and flour or egg and again mix it very well.

Note-If you are not using egg then add 2 tp white oil in the paste to add some moisture.If you are using egg then no need of oil.

Now cover the bowl and keep the mixture in the fridge for atleast an hour to rest.This will make your mixture bind well in the bamboo stick or any kind of stick.

Now take handful of the mixture and give a cylindrical shape and insert a sheekh or any kind of stick or can use a long toothpick.

Now take a grilled pan or any other pan,OTG,Airfryer and add little butter and oil and grill on all sides till it turns light golden from all sides.

Serve with Sauce.I made a homemade sauce.It goes very well with this tangy sauce.
Take 3 tbsp mayonaise,1 tbsp tomato ketchup,1/2 tp green chilli sauce.Mix it well .Serve with the Chickpea Sheekh Kababs.

Lote Macher Jhuri in Village style||Bengali style Bombay Duck Recipe




Lote Macher Jhuri Recipe

This fish is also called Bombay Duck Fish in english.Very very soft fish and mainly we get this fish in sea.Here in Bengal we get it very easily in fish market.Earlier it was not not very popular as it was very cheap in price but nowardays Lote has become very popular fish in resturants and in homes and so the price has also increased a lot and is very much in demand.
Earlier I used to eat Shutki (dry fish) of Lote which was very popular with east bengal people.Shutki was quite popular with bengalis but now fresh lote fish has become equally popular.Nowardays quite often I make this jhuri (in mashed form).Easy to meake,very few ingredients needed and very very delicious with hot steamed rice.

Ingredients
  • Lote fish without head-1 kg
  • Onion-2 medium size chopped
  • Garlic-2 tbsp
  • Ginger-grated 1 tp
  • Green chillies-
  • Turmeric powder-1tp for marination,1 tp for preparation
  • Red chilli powder-1 tp
  • salt to taste
  • Mustard oil- 3 tbsp
  • Chopped coriander- 1 bunch chopped

Method
  1. First step is to wash the fish very nicely.Drain off the water properly.
  2. Now marinate the fish with salt and turmeric and keep for atleast 20 min so that extra water is drained from the fish.
  3. Add 3 tbsp mustard oil in the pan or kadai.Heat oil very very well.
  4. Add chopped Garlic 2 tbsp.Saute for few seconds.
  5. Now add chopped onions and fry till it turns golden.
  6. Now add marinated lote fish,and stir and fry it with onion and garlic.
  7. Now add 1 tp red chilli powder,turmeric powder and stir it with the fish.Fish will release water and you have to stir and dry the water.
  8. Now add grated ginger and continue to stir.
  9. Now add 1/2 bunch chopped coriander and stir.It takes time to dry it completly.Remember this fish preparation has to be spicy and hot.
  10. Now add chopped green chillies when the fish preparation is almost dry.
  11. Once the preparation leaves oil from the sides add chopped coriander ,mix it and the Fish jhuri is ready to be served.

Note-Serve with hot steamed rice.
