Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min


  • Half KG chicken mince
  • 4 green chillies, chopped
  • 5 gm red chilli powder
  • 20 gm whole corriander
  • 20 gm whole cumin
  • 5 gm corn flour
  • 10 gm pomegranate seeds
  • 5 gm salt
  • 5 gm garam masala
  • 2 onion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 5 ml ginger garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 20 gm gram flour
  • 5 gm mint, chopped
  • 5 gm corriander, chopped


  1. First fry an egg and keep it aside. We will be using 2 eggs ,one in fried form and other one is raw.
  2. Heat the whole coriander and cumin to dark brown but do not burn it. In the same way heat the gram flour to dark brown color.
  3. Mix all these ingredients in chicken mince.
  4. Now grind all the mixture in a chopper, make flat kebabs on your palms and keep them aside. Add chopped onions, tomatoes, mint, coriander and green chilies.
  5. Fry them on medium heat in a pan until dark brown.
  6. Serve them hot with yogurt or green mint sauce either with burger buns or naan/chapati.

Spreaded Shape of Kebabs

The chapli kebab is a popular barbecue and street food throughout Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and other parts of Pakistan, as well as in eastern Afghanistan and India. In India, it is eaten as a regular street food, specifically, in the Indian cities of Bhopal, Lucknow, Delhi and Hyderabad; it is especially popular with Indian Muslims. It can be served and eaten hot with naan bread, rice, or in buns and sandwiches such as in a bun kebab.

Another theory is that the name is derived from chappal, the local word for sandals – implying the average shape and size of a kebab, which resembles that of a front part of the chappal sole.

If you leave them too long, the tomatoes will release water and make the kababs soggy, so they will end up breaking in the oil.

The chapli kababs freeze well and all you need to do is microwave them for a few minutes before serving. Try them on buns or sandwich thins with a little mayo.

Once cooked, chapli kebabs can be served and garnished with parsley, chopped onions and tomatoes, along with other accompaniments such as various chutney sauces, salad, yoghurt, pickles or nuts. The chapli kebab is best served aromatic, moist and spicy.

If your kebabs are breaking, add one egg (not fried) to the mince mixture for the start but when you get to be a pro, I'm sure Kebabs will not break. You may add a little more gram flour instead of egg that will help the kebab to bind.

More Ways to Eat Chapli Kebabs !

Chapli kebab burger is inspired by the thin, heavily spiced Pakistani patties, which are typically drizzled with green chutney and served wrapped in warm naan. This version replaces naan with buns and welcomes the classic crunch of iceberg lettuce. But what really sets these burgers apart are the other flavorful toppings and condiments: thinly sliced onions, tomatoes and cucumbers, a creamy herbed yogurt, and tomato ketchup spiked with tamarind paste. Take a few extra minutes to put together the sauces — the mouthwatering tang, sweetness, creaminess and spice they'll add will make all the difference.
