Reshmi Kebab of Kolkata

Reshmi is an Indian name for silk, this itself will give you the magnificent taste of the Reshmi Kebab recipe that melts in the mouth just like that. Therefore we would state that Reshmi kabab gets its name from the juicy succulence of the spiced meat added to the skewers with a light golden brown color. The meat gets this texture thanks to the marinade in which it is soaked and above all the rice bran oil with whose help it is prepared.


  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 large onions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons garlic paste
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste
  • 1 dash salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1 kilogram (about 2 1/4 pounds) of boneless chicken pieces, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, or Jeevan Rekha’s rice cooking bran oil


1. Chicken Reshmi Kebab has a clean method of preparation, which includes summing up all the ingredients at once and soaking the almonds, later grinding them with coriander, onion, ginger, and garlic pastes and grinding to form a smooth paste. 

2. Add a little salt according to the taste, then lemon juice, and mix everything well.

3. Take a  large bowl, pour the paste and sour yogurt over the chicken for proper marination and mix well to coat all the pieces at once. Cover and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

4. Last part of the preparation is the most important part, as the smokey taste of the kebab can only be found after using the skewers and grill. Make sure that you lightly brush each part of the kebab preventing it from sticking with each other.

Remove the skewers and serve it hot and grilled with coriander chutney and naans and you will forget everything.
