Do You Like Kebabs

Whether you’re a fan of the UK night scene or you simply love spending time in good old Britannia, there’s one part of the British culture that you’ll have no doubt experienced: the takeout.

Of course, the king of the British takeout scene is the kebab. More specifically, the doner kebab. This collection of shaved meats doesn’t have to be linked to takeout and bad eating habits. There are many different kinds of kebabs that you can enjoy, from all around the world, which are tasty, healthy, and even unique.

So, here’s a quick guide to the different types of kebabs you can try if you want to try something a bit different from the standard option. Enjoy!

Seekh Kebab

A popular kebab type that you will see on most kebab menus is a seekh kebab. Like the doner kebab, it’s usually made from lamb that has been minced, and if you have it from a restaurant, it may be served as an appetizer.

Unlike the Doner kebab, it originates in India, and the meat is speared onto wooden skewers. Of course, it can be part of a takeaway surfers paradise, too, with many reputable Indian eateries serving it.

Reshmi Kebab

Moving away from lamb, a reshmi kebab is made from large, marinated, and grilled chunks of chicken.

Also known as a malai kebab, this Mughlai appetizer is ideal for those who love butter chicken. OK, so the chicken isn’t exactly buttered, but it is creamy, as it has been soaked in cream, yogurt, as well as ground cashews and almonds. Much like the seekh kebab, whether in a restaurant or a takeout, this kebab is served on wooden skewers for more convenient eating.

Galouti Kebab

Back to lamb, or, well, mutton! If you want a kebab that is zingy and bite-sized, then a galouti kebab is likely the answer. It’s made from mutton that has been minced and soaked in finely ground spices and papaya juice. The mutton itself is then mixed with egg and flour to bind it together before it’s fried in oil with green chili peppers. So, it’s spicy too!

It’s part of Awadhi cuisine and is described as so delicate that it’ll likely melt in your mouth.

Shami Kebab

A shami kebab has regal origins, coming from the Mughal’s royal kitchens, and is now often found in Indian takeouts and restaurants. However, due to cultural sharing and similar herbs, you can also find a variant of this kebab in Pakistani restaurants too.

Again, it’s made from mutton, but it physically resembles something similar to a burger, and it’s mixed with zingy and spicy ingredients like red chili, cumin, and cinnamon.

Hariyali Kebab

Do you like coriander? If you do, you’ll love the hariyali kebab, which is boneless chicken chunks that are marinated in a paste of coriander, garam masala, yogurt, and mint. Interestingly, if you’re vegan, there’s an option for this kebab that you can get in most Indian eateries, where the chicken is replaced with either paneer or tofu; the texture of the false meat is important because this kebab is also served on skewers.
