Minced lamb (मटन कीमा) when cooked with aromatic spices, tomatoes, onion and garlic yields a perfect mouth watering dish, which can be used as main dish or as side with some other curry with gravy. Lamb keema is a “happy dish” (as I call it), that it can be easily paired with any bread or naan or can be used as a filling in sandwich or as even topper on jacked potatoes.
Dahi Vada (दही बड़ा) is a popular Indian snack which is made by soaking vada (fried lentil balls) in yogurt, and topped with chutney and spices like chilli powder and roasted cumin powder. Dahi vada and Holi (festival of colors) has a strong bond in my life. Every Holi my mother used to make Dahi vada to be served for guests who used to come to play Holi at our place. As a kid, it used to give a new dimension to Holi for me. Not sure if I used to wait for Holi more or dahi vada, but I used to thoroughly enjoy the eating dahi vada whilst our faces were smeared with colors. Making dahi vada on holi has been a tradition in my family and what a pleasant surprise the same is the tradition at my in-laws place.

Cucumber Raita (खीरे का रायता) is a great cooling dish which goes with any fiery dish, or sometimes just acts as one of many ways to make plain yogurt exciting. Less often I have used this as part of dips as well. Cucumbers are extremely beneficial for general health and this is one of my ways to feed Cucumber to my family.
If you love sea food, chances are high that you will love prawns too. Prawns have a distinct taste and fabulous source of protein. Though I am a vegetarian, I love seeing my partner enjoy his food, and he loves his non-veg. This makes me give all sort of suggestion to my partner to try out various non-vegetarian recipes. It seems his Prawn capsicum recipe was hit between his friends and hence I suggested this time that he tries out prawn skewers. This recipe does not require oven, but if you wish you can use oven (check recipe notes at the bottom of this recipe).
