Origin of Chapli Kebab

When it comes to the origins of the chapli kebabs recipe, literature claims that it originated in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa area. Chapli Kebab is a Pukhtun speciality that was once called Peshawari Kebab, after the Peshawar province. The word chapli comes from the Pashto word chaprikh, which means “to flatten.” The kebabs are minced chicken or meat cutlets that have been flattened and seasoned with authentic spices and vegetables. The minced chicken kebab recipe travelled from Pakistan to Afghanistan and India.
