Recipe for spicy chicken kabab

Updated on September 23, 2015

The common term kebab refers to, meat that is cooked over in oil or next to flames. The meat can be large or small cuts of meat or even ground meat.

The traditional meat used for kebabs is lamb but other meats include beef, goat, chicken, pork or fish.

The word kebab is derived from the Arabic word “Kabab” meaning fry. According to the Turkish scripts, the dish was invented by Medieval Turkic or Persian soldiers who used their swords to grill meat over open field fires.

Kebabs were served in the royal houses during various celebrations, where warriors and even commoners used to enjoy it with Naan or Pita.

In India these Kebabs are prepared with liberal use of spices as India is the country of spices. Some are of the opinion that these Kebabs are introduced to South Asia during Delhi Sultanate and Mughal era by Muslim emigrants from Middle East.

In India among all kinds of kababs prepared the most popular are Shami Kebab, Kakori kebab and kalmi kebab.
