Soft and succulent kebabs are our true weakness. You give us these smoky, melt-in-your-mouth appetisers anytime of the day, and we'd perhaps, for an instance, forget about how terrible the day has been treating is otherwise. Kebabs are a Middle-East Asian treat that were supposedly popularised by the Mughals in India. It was in their reign that the humble kebab was re-imagined in so many avatars. Galouti, shami, chapli, tunday, kakori- there are so many kinds of kebabs that we may have lost the count. One of our all-time favourite kebabs is mutton seekh kebab. This delicious kebab is often paired with tangy pudina chutney and is made with minced mutton mixed with assorted spices.
