Lamb Seekh Kebabs

Lamb Seekh Kebabs
While not traditional, fresh mint is a natural partner for lamb and plays well with the spices in these skewers.Thomas Payne

A good seekh kebab is the gold standard of kebabs in India. In this version, chef Meherwan Irani starts with ground lamb and bumps up the aromatics, adding plenty of garlic, ginger, cilantro, and to brighten the dish, mint. The distinctive shape of these kebabs has a purpose: the top of the ridges char while the furrows stay tender and juicy.

If the meat sticks to your hands when shaping, oiling or even simply moistening your hands with water will make the task easier.
