This recipe is LONNNNG in the making! A subscriber asked me years ago to make a video on this. After researching this delicious deep fried kebab I realized that there are different ways to make it – the way they make it on the streets of Peshawar in Pakistan and the adapted version made by many amazing Pakistani home cooks – my recipe is somewhere in between, tried, tested and delicious!
This deep fried Kebab is flavored with a fresh ground combination of whole spices, ginger and garlic, scrambled and whole egg. You also add onion, chopped tomato & coriander. This flattened deep fried kebab is served with or without a slice of tomato.
You can use ground Mutton, Lamb or Beef in this recipe. In many parts of India, Beef is now banned, so Mutton & Lamb are great options!
