This is one of the most popular kebabs in India. Nuggets of chicken are spiced with a delicate blend of herbs and spices and grilled over charcoal. Hara means green and green herbs are ground together to make the marinade for these delicious morsels. My old childhood friend Ravish Kohly came by one Saturday armed with boxes of ingredients. He showed me how to make a Chipotle Kebab, Seekh Kebab and this recipe below.
