Who doesn't like Kebabs!!! Everyone of us have eaten some kind of kebab, living in any part of the world.Kebabs have always been my favourite.
Kebabs first originated in Persia. Kebab comprises mostly of meat and vegetables, which are either grilled, roasted or deep fried. Kebabs can also be made in tandoor which tastes really good. The meat or veggies are usually marinated with spices and curds for hours and then placed in skewers and cooked.

These kebabs are not only gluten free but vegan too.
