Chicken Kebabs with Lemon Butter Sauce

I love it when a plan comes together 😊 

1 kg chicken mince (buy prewashed)
2 slices of bread (Processed in a food processor to form breadcrumbs)
2 onions (processed in a food processor with
1 bunch dhania (do not make too fine)
2 tsp crushed garlic paste
2 tsp green chili paste
2 level tsp salt
½ tsp white pepper
2 tsp crushed jeero
2 tsp crushed coriander seeds
2 tsp chicken
2 tsp BBQ spice
1 tsp aromat
1 tsp crushed chili
1 tsp chili spice
2 tsp baking powder

Mix all ingredients well together.
Shape into a kebab with oiled hands.
Refrigerate for 1 hour
Drizzle some oil into a non-stick pan.
Fry on medium heat for a few minutes on each side (do not overcook kebab as it will harden)

Make lemon butter sauce and pour sauce over kebab before serving.

Lemon butter sauce
4 tbsp butter
½ tsp garlic
½ Aromat
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp mayonnaise
½ cup fresh cream

Boil the above together and pour over cooked kebab

I omitted the mayonnaise.
I melted the butter and fried the garlic then add Aromat and pepper and stirred for a few seconds.
I made a paste with 1 tsp cornflour and a little cream and stirred into the butter mixture and then added the remainder of the cream – I used a whole cup
