ABOUT Chapli Kabaabs/Peshawari Kabaabs.. RECIPE

Chapli Kabaab is a Pashtun style Kabaab made either from ground lamb or beef mince. These are utterly delicious and moist, served with some raita and lemon wedges. As it originates in Peshawar in North West Pakistan, these are also called as Peshawari Kabaabs. These are a warming combination of crushed spices and the result are such spicy, tender, juicy and succulent kabaabs. Named after the heel of a woman's slipper, these kabaabs are easily made on stovetop. Infact these are more popular because of the way these are made.
