Soya Seekh Kabab

I have seen this in one of the cookery shows.. dont remember the name :-( but remembered the recipe vaguely. As I had some of these soya chunks at home from the left over curry thought of making these and added flavours as per liking. So, here is the recipe for this scrumptious dish. Enjoy!


Grounded soya/ Nutrella - 1 Cup

Boiled potato - 1 Cup
Coriander leaves - 1/2 Cup
Mint leaves few sprigs
Gram flour - 3 Tbspns
Green chillies - 4
Cumin seeds - 1 Tspn
Medium size Onion - 2 ( finely chopped)
Red chilli powder - 1 Tbspns
Turmeric - 1/2 Tbspn
Coriander powder - 1 Tbspn
Meat Masala - 2 Tbspns
Chaat Masala - 1 Tbspn
Oil - 4 Tbspns
Salt to taste


  1. Soak Soya chunks in hot water for few minutes or till soft. After 5 mins take the soya chunks squeezing water from it and grind in a mixer like Keema ( minced meat) and not into a paste.
  2. Boil two medium size potatoes and mash it.
  3. Chop mint leaves, coriander and chillies and keep aside.
  4. Take a bowl and mix minced soya, potato, coriander, green chillies and mint leaves.
  5. In a pan heat oil, add cumin seeds. When it starts to crackle add onions and sauté it for a minute. 
  6. Then add all the spice powders along with the salt. We don't want to cook the onions completely. So once its nearly done take it off from the stove. 
  7. Mix this with the rest of the soya and potato mixture. Add gram flour for binding.
  8. Now mould this batter/ mixture into desired shape and insert a tooth pick or seekh.
  9. Pre- heat the oven for 10 mins at 180 deg C and the grill this for 10-14 mins at same temperature, keeping a check on it in between.
  10. Sprinkle some chaat masala, squeeze some lemon juice and serve hot with green chutney and Tamarind chutney.
If oven is not available you can shallow fry this on a non-stick pan as well.
For healthier version for babies/ Toddlers just reduce the spice content and no salt.
