Kebabs

Are you a huge fan of kebab? Did you know that it is a Middle Eastern cuisine? Its origins can also be traced to royal courts and humble kitchens, from across the length and breadth of India.

Popular across the world, a kebab is any of a wide variety of grilled meat dishes in India, Middle East, other parts of Asia, and the Muslim world. Some dishes ultimately derived from Middle Eastern kebab may have different names in their local languages.

Indian Kebab

Though pit- or skewer-cooked meat dishes are noted in an ancient Indian text, modern-day kebabs in India mostly trace their origin to the influence of Mughlai cuisine. Some varieties of kebab in India are more or less similar to kebab preparations elsewhere but with a distinctive taste, which can be credited to the use of Indian spices. Other varieties are entirely distinct versions native to India such as Tunde ke kabab, Tikka kebab, Shami kebab, Soovar ki Saanth (pork belly kebabs from Rajasthan) and Rajpooti soolah. The prevalence of vegetarianism in much of India also means that there are many local vegetarian varieties made from Paneer or potato.

Potful signature Kebabs are boneless pieces of meat, fish or vegetables seasoned by hand with a mixture of ingredients from the traditional recipes. It is then placed on the grill until the fat drips from the meat and becomes tender and juicy, and brown quickly to perfection letting the flavor of the meat shine through.

Although the best kebabs are often cooked on a skewer, many types of kebab are not. Kebab dishes can consist of cut up or ground meat or seafood, sometimes with fruits and vegetables, cooked on a skewer over a fire, or like a hamburger on a grill, baked in a pan in an oven, or as a stew; and served with various accompaniments according to each recipe. The traditional meat for kebabs is most often mutton or lamb, but regional recipes may include beef, goat, chicken, fish, or pork.
