ABOUT Bahraini kebab RECIPE

Bahraini kebab is very popular during Ramadan and usually served during Iftar.  Crisp on the outside with a soft interior, the Bahraini kebab makes a great little spicy vegetarian appetizer, delicious when served with a cool refreshing (will post recipe) yoghurt and coriander dipping sauce. The batter for the Bahraini kebab is made using chickpea flour, known locally as kebab flour… besan and gram flour are also other names for chickpea flour.
