Extremely succulent and flavourful jujeh kababs, its a famous recipe from Iranian cuisine. Got this recipe courtesy an Irani friend of mine. These kababs are generally served with any aromatic rice or pulao and grilled tomatoes.

Required ingredients

  • 500 grams chicken breast - cut into small chunks

For marinating

  • 1/2 cup hung yoghurt
  • 1 medium onion finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 8-10 strands of saffron
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp pepper powder
  • Salt as per taste
  • Juice of a lime

For basting

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder

Directions & How to

  • Wash, rinse and pat dry chicken with a clean cloth.
  • Combine all the ingredients for marinating in a bowl and blend it well. Add chicken pieces and mix well. Cover the bowl, refrigerate it and leave it to marinate for 10-12 hours. Ideally it should be left to marinate for 24 hours.
  •  To prepare basting mixture mix olive oil, melted butter, lemon juice and pepper powder in a small bowl.
  • Put chicken chunks in the skewers and cook it over electric or charcoal grill till it is cooked through. While cooking baste it with basting mixture once or twice.
