The Best Chapli Kebab

Origin Of kebabs

There are many type of kebabs but the most popular are sheesh kebab and chapli kebab. Kebab is originated from Arabic language but many other languages Pashto, Persian and Turk claim on it. We heard from our elders, Turk and Persian soldier enjoy grilling fresh meat wrapped on their swords.Kebabs were Mughals favourite and was a prominent dish on their menu, today's chapli kebab are purely take on of Afghan cuisine

These kebabs not only tastes delicious but also looks gorgeous. Use them with plain boiled rice and bowl of yoghurt. They will be a favourite in any party or dinner. Just make it once and I am sure they will be on top of your list.

You will need half kg chicken mince, one large onion diced in small pieces, or chop it in chopper. Three green chillies, one large tomato and bunch of coriander leaves. Another easy option is to take onion, tomato, chillies and coriander and chop in your chopper all together as I did. Spices will be red chilli powder, turmeric and salt. Add bit of chat masalah if you have at home.
