These are soft and spicy kebabs made from leftover rice and minced chicken.You can substitute the chicken with mutton or fish.Well ,I had some leftover rice in my refrigerator from previous day’s dinner .In the morning my maid reminded me ,there’s some cooked rice in the fridge “Bhabi ,phek doo kya?” which means “shall I dispose it in the bin?”.For a moment I felt, it was cooked long grained basmati rice and to dispose so much rice doesn’t sound sensible.I thought I will get some recipe in the internet and started searching ,meanwhile coincidentally my blogger friend Maria Nasir had posted a recipe of rice and fish cakes.The very idea of blending and mixing the rice and fish fillets together gave me an idea of making these kababs.I had minced chicken in my freezer which I took out and gave the recipe a try with my own variation of spices and results were amazing my daughter alone had finished four kebabs.They are soft yet firm and white looking yet spicy.


1.400 gms of minced chicken
2.Cooked Rice (3 to 4 cups)
3.Green chillies (3 to 4)
4.Red chillies whole (2)
5.Garam masala (cardamom ,cinnmon,cloves,black pepper) ground (1 tbsp)
