This one is a winner - Seekh Tawa Masala

Last night I was in a big dilemma about what to cook for dinner that would go well with rotis. My fridge was almost empty with few random stuffs lying in there. While rummaging through my freezer I chanced upon this packet of ready to fry chicken seekh kababs and a brilliant idea struck me. Why not make a tawa style gravy and dunk some of the kababs in - thats how this dish was made - Seekh Tawa Masala - for those weeknights when u don't want to cook elaborate meals but want to eat tasty food nonetheless. This is was surely a winner.


Chicken seekh kababs - 4-5 nos ( cut into small pieces) - can use mutton too

Onions - 1 medium - finely sliced

Tomato - 1 large - finely chopped

Tomato puree - 1 tbsp

Ginger paste - 1 tsp

Green chillies - 1 -2 finely chopped( adjust acc to your taste)

Garlic paste - 1 tsp

Turmeric - 1 tsp

Coriander powder - 1 tbsp

Kashmiri red chillli powder - 1 tbsp

Garam masala powder - 1 tsp

Sugar - 1 tsp

Salt - to taste

Fresh cream - 2 tbsp

Refined oil - 1 tbsp + 1 tbsp


In a pan heat oil  and fry the kababs and keep aside.

In the same pan add another tbsp of oil .Tip in the sliced onions, ginger - garlic paste.

Fry till light brown in colour. Add the chopped tomatoes and fry for another 2-3 mins.

Next tip in the tomato puree , turmeric powder, red chilli powder , coriander powder , salt and sugar and roast the masala paste very well. Adding a little water if reqd.

Once the oil seperates from the masala mixture add the fried kababs. Cover and cook for 2 mins.

Finish with some chopped green chillies and fresh cream.

Remove from heat and serve hot.
