Note: You can cook seekh skewers in a 220 ° C oven for 20 to 30 minutes.

1. In a bowl, add the white flour, sesame seeds, salt, sugar, kewra water and banana paste to start kneading. Gradually pour water over the flour as you knead it.

2. Once all the ingredients are combined, turn the dough over on a clean surface (dusted with flour) and knead for 3 to 4 minutes. Continue kneading until the dough is soft. Using your fingers, stretch the dough, fold it inwards and knead.

3. The dough should be soft and not sticky, so do not add excess water. While adding excess flour will make the dough firm and dry.

4. When finished, keep the dough lightly covered for an hour. Let the dough rise.

1. In a bowl, add the ground meat and spices together.
