Description: Classic Nepali Chicken-Shrimp Kabob
Serving Size: (As desired)
Preparation Time: at least 4 hours marinating and about 15-20 minutes cooking

1.5 lbs. chicken breasts, skinned, boned, and cut into 1-in. cubes.
1 lb. large shrimps, deveined
1/2 lb. pearl onions
1/2 lb. cherry tomatoes
Melted butter for basting
Bamboo skewers (pre-soaked in cold water for at least 30 min.)
¼ cup chopped green onions for garnish

2 cups yogurt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoon soy sauce
4 tablespoons mustard oil
1 cup onions, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
½ teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
3 fresh red chilies
1 teaspoon pepper corn
1 teaspoon timur (Szechwan pepper)
2 cloves garlic
1 in. ginger
Salt to taste
In a blender, combine all the marinating ingredients to form a marinade. In a large bowl, mix chicken and shrimps with the marinade. Allow marinating for 4 to 6 hours. Fire up a charcoal grill. Clean the grill surface thoroughly. Thread, alternatively, the marinated chicken cubes, shrimps, and vegetables into skewers. Do not overcrowd the skewers with pieces. Grill the skewered kabobs (sekuwa), frequently turning and basting with melted butter until cooked through. Take the cooked sekuwas off the grill and generously brush with melted butter before serving. To serve, arrange the sekuwas on the bed of rice pilaf, complemented with a chutney (achar) of your choice on the side. Sprinkle chopped green onions over the sekuwas. Tomato achar or cilantro-chili achar make an ideal condiment for sekuwas.
