Arbi seekh kabab
  • Take the boiled arbi in a bowl. Add all of the above ingredients together except oil. Adjust the seasoning as per your taste.
  • Mash them well with your hand.  All of the ingredients will be incorporated with each other well and divide this mixture into equal portions.
  • Grease a few drops of oil on your palms and on the skewers.
  • Give each portion a tube-like shape and put it onto the skewer(seekh).
  • Heat oil on a non-stick skillet/tawa. Once oil becomes hot enough place the seekhs into the hot oil.
  • Fry over medium flame until all the sides turn golden brown in color and small brown patches appear. Drizzle few drops of oil or clarified butter at intervals.
  • Repeat the same process with the remaining arbi seekhs.
  • Once done, serve hot with some green chutney.


  • Boil the arbis one day before you are planning to do and then store in the refrigerator. It will prevent the arbis to get gooey or sticky.
  • While boiling make sure arbis are not overcooked.
