Murg Bhanjara Kebab

Crowd pleasing spicy appetizer with conglomeration of different spices and herbs.


Cornish hen / Boneless chicken / Chicken drumsticks
2 tsp Curd
1/2 tsp Lemon juice
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
1 tsp Coriander Seeds
1/2 tsp Sesame Seeds
1/2 tsp Red Chili powder
4 Cloves of Garlic
1 inch Ginger
3 Green chilies
1 small bunch of Mint


  • Dry roast mustard seeds, cumin seeds and coriander seeds. Grind them into fine powder (spice powder)

  • Make a paste of ginger, garlic and green chilies
  • In a mixing bowl, add curd, spice powder, lemon juice, red chili powder, ginger-garlic-chili paste and finely chopped mint. Adjust salt as per taste. Mix well

  • Smear this paste on chicken and massage well. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top of chicken. Refrigerate for 1 hour

  • Preheat oven for 350F
  • Place chicken on a baking tray inside the oven and cook for 1 hour

  • Serve hot

  • You can use any portion of chicken. I have used whole Cornish hen, because the meat is tender and it cooks fast. Other wise, chicken breast, chicken drumsticks can be used. But the cooking time varies
