What is chapli kabab?

Chapli Kabab, a beloved Pakistani dish, is a savory minced meat patty that boasts a mouthwatering blend of flavors and spices. The name “Chapli” refers to the flat, round shape of the kabab, which is distinctive to this dish. 

It’s typically made using a mixture of ground meat, often a combination of beef and chicken, mixed with other aromatic ingredients such as coriander, cumin, ginger, garlic, and green chilies. The result is a kabab that’s spicy, aromatic, and incredibly flavorful.

Where did chapli kabab come from?

Chapli Kabab has its roots in the Pashtun region of Pakistan, particularly in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. 

This beloved dish was born out of necessity, catering to the dietary preferences and nomadic lifestyle of the Pashtun tribes.

Originally, Chapli Kabab was created as a portable and protein-rich food that could sustain the Pashtun people during their arduous journeys and nomadic lifestyle. The word “Chapli” itself means flat or “slippers,” which aptly describes the kabab’s characteristic shape. 

These kababs were not only flavorful but also practical, as their flat shape made them easy to carry and cook over open flames.

Over time, Chapli Kabab transcended its humble origins and became a beloved dish (nothing short of a cultural icon!) all across Pakistan. Its irresistible blend of spices and tender meat made it a popular choice at family gatherings, weddings, and celebrations.

How to make chapli kabab?

Chapli Kababs start with a mixture of ground meat, commonly using a combination of beef and chicken, to achieve the right balance of flavors and textures. Spices are then added to the meat mixture. These can include coriander powder, cumin powder, minced garlic, ginger, and finely chopped green chilies. The spices give the kabab its distinctive spicy and aromatic profile.

Chopped onions contribute both flavor and moisture to the kabab mixture, while fresh coriander leaves and mint leaves add a refreshing touch. An egg is often included in the mixture to bind all the ingredients together, ensuring that the kababs hold their shape during cooking.

Once the ingredients are thoroughly combined, the mixture is shaped into flat, round patties. These patties are then fried in hot oil until they achieve a tempting golden-brown exterior and are cooked through on the inside. 

Served with naan and mint or tamarind chutney!
