Chapli Kabab

Kababs are popular all over the world. Pakistanis have some authentic types of kababs and is a part of our main course. Chapli kabab is a speciality of Peshawar. Minced meat is mixed with spices and fried on a pan. The unique element of this kabab is chunks of tomatoes. Tomatoes are not added in any kabab other than Chapli Kabab. Sometimes tomato slice is placed on top of the kabab and then fried. As it is so famous in Peshawar, people of Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore have learnt the recipe too to enjoy this dish in their own city. Chapli Kabab is also made on Eid ul Adha and enjoyed with chatni and raita.

  • 1/2 cup onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon ginger paste
  • 1 tablespoon garlic paste
  • 1 tablespoon coriander powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin powder
  • 1 tablespoon red chili powder

  2. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours, to allow the flavors to meld together.
  3. After the marination period, take out the bowl and divide the mixture into equal portions. Take each portion and shape it into a flat disc, similar to a patty.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, place the shaped kababs into the skillet and fry for 5-7 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and fully cooked.
  5. Once the kababs are cooked, remove them from the skillet and drain on a paper towel to remove any excess oil.
  6. Serve hot with fresh naan bread, salad, and mint chutney on the side.
