Beef seekh kabab are a type of kebab, that are extremely popular in the subcontinent, made with spiced minced or ground meat. Even though they are commonly made with minced beef there are quite a few variations and are now made in lamb and chicken as well. The minced meat is then formed into cylinders on skewers and grilled. It is typically cooked on a mangal or barbecue, or in a tandoor.

Beef Seekh Kabab History

Seekh Kebab were originally known as Shish Kebab and were introduced to India by the Turks (people, especially traders from Turkey). In Turkish, the word Shish actually means a “sword” or skewer and the word Kebab means “to roast”. So if we see the literal meaning seekh kabab translate to a roasted sword.

Legend has it that Shish Kebab was first originated on the open field as the Turkish soldiers would take shelter in the forests during night time and hunt for any wild meat that they could find. They would then skewer it on their swords and roast it over fire. Since it seemed to be only source of food they could find in the jungles. Eventually this became their favorite source of food during their night stays in dense forests.
