Parties or celebrations without kebabs are unthinkable. The moment the aroma of these meaty delights come wafting through the air, you cannot wait to take a bite of these sizzling wonders. Juicy, tender and creamy, kebabs can be the ultimate way to satisfy your hunger without feeling guilty, as they are both yummy and healthy. And when you stuff them, the indulgence simply gets double. Here are some must-try stuffed kebabs that you can try at home.

Stuffed Chicken Spinach Kebab: 

Take your health metre to a notch higher with this simple recipe that has both greens and meaty stuff. Minerals, proteins and vitamins are all clubbed in one with just a few drops of butter and oil. This is best prepared with baby spinach, which are tastier and better in their mineral content. Add some spring onions, pepper and salt along with prunes and cook the spinach for some time. Take the chicken breasts, slit them open and push in the spinach stuffing. Drizzle some honey on the chicken before putting them on the baking tray. Cook them on medium heat until each part of the chicken turns golden brown. You can serve it with some stir fried veggies like broccoli and carrots for a wholesome snack.

Stuffed Chicken Kebab With Pine Nut: 

This is another lip-smacking kebab that is sure to impress your guests with its juicy, luscious stuffing. For better results, marinate the chicken drumsticks for about 10 to 15 minutes with cumin, clove, carom, cardamom, both black and green, nutmeg, star anise, and fennel along with two eggs and keep it aside. The stuffing needs to be prepared with minced chicken, pine nut, ginger, spring onions and seasoning, which requires stir frying in a pan and then stuffed in the chicken. The chicken drumsticks then can be marinated for the tikka kebab flavour with yoghurt, ginger and garlic paste, cream, red chilli powder and lemon juice. Bake or grill it on a non-stick grill pan as per your choice.

Stuffed Jackfruit Kebab:

Who said kebabs should be only made of chicken or mutton? You can try this delicious stuffed jackfruit kebab stuffed with chopped cashews and onions and mixed together with ginger, garlic, black pepper powder, cinnamon powder, onions and breadcrumbs as a coating. Now, bake it or fry it on a grilled pan with just a few teaspoons of oil or butter for tasty stuffed jackfruit kebabs.

Kebabs aren’t difficult to prepare if you know just the ingredients to make them succulent and marinade them for a few hours for the masalas to seep in. So, the next time you have guests at home, you can treat them to tasty, stuffed kebabs without too much hassle.
