Peshawari Chapli Kabab | Pakistani Recipe

Hi everyone! For today's post I'll be making Chapli Kabab a pashtun dish which is very popular in Pakistan and Afghanistan. All the smell of the malasa that emerges from this kabab is insane, it makes you want to devour it all at once.

I can actually say that this is one of my favorite Pakistani dish! It seems like a basic hamburger patty
but it's not, the consistency it totally different... this chapli kabab is juicy inside and crispy outside.

What makes this kabab special is that I've added in anardana (dried pomegranate seed) which really enrich the kababs flavor end give them a little bit of that sour taste.

I've served them with naan, mint chutney, squeeze of lemon and a few coriander leaves.

I really hope you give this a try!
