Are seekh kebabs healthy?
Seekh kebabs, when prepared thoughtfully, can indeed be a healthy option. The choice of ingredients and cooking methods play a crucial role in determining their healthiness. If you skip splattering them with oodles of butter and pick healthy ingredients to make them, they are great for your diet, and in this case, a fasting diet. These vrat-friendly veg seekh kebabs offer several health benefits:
While potatoes are often seen as starchy, they are an excellent source of important nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin B6, and potassium. They also provide dietary fiber and help keep you full.
Paneer, or cottage cheese, is a good source of protein and calcium. It adds a creamy texture to the kebabs and makes them more filling.
Buckwheat (kuttu flour) is a gluten-free whole grain that’s high in fibre and protein. It’s also a good source of essential minerals like manganese and magnesium.
These kebabs are pan-fried, which reduces the need for excessive oil, making them a healthier alternative to deep-fried options.

How To Make Veg Seekh Kebabs I Vrat-Friendly Veg Seekh Kebabs Recipe
Start by boiling the potatoes until they’re soft. Allow them to cool and then mash them up. Take paneer and crumble it into small pieces. In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes and crumbled paneer. Add kuttu atta (buckwheat flour) to the mix for that perfect binding. Spice things up with dry spices like jeera powder, chilli powder, and a dash of pepper. Don’t forget to season it with sendha namak (rock salt). To bring it all together, add 1 tbsp of oil and knead the mixture into a smooth dough. Grease your palms with a bit of oil, take a small ball of the dough, and knead it into a cylindrical shape, like the seekh kebabs we adore.
Now thread each kebab onto a stick, shaping them evenly and securely. Heat up a non-stick tawa and cook the kebabs from all sides until they achieve a lovely golden-brown hue. Enjoy healthy kebabs for weekend indulgence.
