The dishes you serve at a Christmas party can make the difference between a great or not-so-great party. However, it isn’t always easy to come up with tasty snack ideas.

Furthermore, you need to plan ahead when making this recipe as the chicken should sit in the yoghurt and spice marination overnight.
You can choose to make from a wide variety of kebabs like paneer kebab, galouti kebab, dahi kebab, reshmi kebab, Bihari Kabab, and hara bhara kebab.

Kebabs are considered as the perfect party snacks as their smokey, melt-in-mouth texture, and char-grilled aroma can easily get your guests hooked.
