Chapli Kebab

Jul 12, 2021

Chapli Kabab is a patty-shaped minced meat dish. It's made using ground mutton and beef marinated in a variety of spices. Peshawari kebab is the name given to this meal because it originates in Peshawar. The Chapli kebab recipe is a famous barbeque dish that can be found in all of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's top restaurants and food markets, as well as across Pakistan. Chapli Kebab can be eaten with Afghani Naan, boiling rice, Pulao, or green chili chutney. Chapli Bun Kebab can be eaten as a snack or as a whole meal. It has a high nutritional value and is appropriate for children. On special occasions such as Eid ul Adha, the Chapli Kebab dish will undoubtedly delight your dinner table.

What is Chapli Kabab?

The king of all kababs is the Chapli kabab. It has a crunchy texture as well as a sour, nutty flavor. It has an abundance of scents and flavors.

Chapli kabab is a staple of Pukhtun Cuisine, the cuisine of Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. These chapli kebabs are also known as Peshawari kababs, after Peshawar, the province's capital city. Here's where you can discover more about chapli kabab!

The word chapli comes from the Pashto word chaprikh, which meaning "to flatten." Round and flattened minced meat cutlets with coarsely crushed spices and diced tomatoes make up the kebabs. Chapli kabab and Chapli kebab have also been used. These kababs are also known as Afghan chapli kababs since they are commonly distributed in neighboring Afghanistan.

To be honest, I love chapli kabab and could eat it all by myself. These kababs go nicely with spicy mint coriander chutney, tamarind chutney, or raita. These are traditionally served with tandoori naan. However, they go well with rice, like in afghani Pulao. They're also a terrific protein side dish for daal chawal.
