Boneless chunks of meat are marinated twice and then prepped with onion and chilies for the grill

Boti Kebab is a grilled boneless kebab typically made with meat – Beef, Lamb or Mutton and it can also be made with Chicken. The meat is marinated twice and the marinade includes a tenderizer that gives the meat it’s soft texture.

We commonly think of Boti as a piece or a small chunk but the word is derived from a special traditional knife that was used to cut the meat. Cutting the meat into small chunks and marinating it with spices and a tenderizer, ensures that the meat is not tough to bite into.
