Bihari Kabab

Home/Food/Sindhi/Bihari Kabab

Bihari Kabab has its own worth in the barbecue menu. It is the  most appetizing and flavourful item in Pakistan. Sliced fillet of meat is marinated with spices, raw papaya for tenderizing and an unusual ingredient that is mustard oil.  The longer marination, the better taste. The fillets are placed on flattened skewers and grilled. The coal smokes make the food more aromatic. Pakistanis make this item in every celebration. Watching and participating in live cooking of Bihari Kabab is fun itself. You can enjoy these kababs in restaurants and kabab houses of Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Gujranwala and many other cities.
