Personal experiences, incidents and smiles
Though I am mostly a vegetarian, I like kebabs once in a while.
Thanks to Indian and middle eastern restaurants all over the world, most people are familiar with kebabs.
But we, the inhabitants of the Indian sub-continent are aware that there are kebabs and then there are kebabs. There are many types of kebabs, all taste differently and all are made differently.
Shami kebabs; These are made when mince( chicken or beef) is cooked with split chickpeas till they are softened and completely dry. After mixing an assortment of dried and fresh spices, round Patties are made and fried after dipping in egg wash.
Seekh kebabs are the ones most people are familiar with. Chicken or beef mince is mixed with onions, spices, and chilies and marinated for a few hours. It is then put on skewers and cooked on open flame.
Chapali kebabs; These are made in a way similar to seekh kebabs but instead of grilling on flame, they are fried in oil till done.
There are other varieties of kebabs;
Chicken cheese kebabs……
So you see that kebabs have their own section in the cook books.
Have you tried kebabs? Which ones you liked best?
