Nepalese Chicken Sekuwa Recipe

Chicken Sekuwa is a popular street food from Nepal. Traditionally it is cooked on an open coal grill but I have used an oven here to make it much more convenient for home cooking. You can prepare in an OTG or a convection oven with rotisserie. Overnight marination and addition of Timur (Himalayan Spice) make this recipe so delicious. And the ease of this recipe is beyond imagination, you just need to throw in all the ingredients together, marinate it overnight and grill it the next day for best results. Serve Nepalese Chicken Sekuwa Recipe with Pudina Chutney Recipe and another skewer like Sweet Potato Pineapple Skewers In Spicy Sweetish Peanut Dip Recipe for appetizer.
