‘Chelo Kebab’ consists of Rice or ‘Chelo’ and Kebabs or grilled meat. It is considered as the ‘national dish of Iran’. A butter flavoured rice is accompanied with ‘cubed chicken tikka’, ‘minced mutton seekh kebab’, poached egg, grilled tomato and a scoop of butter.
Few famous restaurants in Kolkata make this dish popular to all Kolkatans. Thus it becomes a worth having dish during our visit in Kolkata. If you are not willing to have a spicy mutton or chicken gravy still want to have the meat then this dish can be one of your top choices. Again rice fulfills the carbohydrate need of this protein rich dish which presents a complete meal to you.
It is always pleasing to get back to blogging that too after a long hiatus. Now what could be more gleeful than sharing a recipe of grandeur on your comeback. Here I bring it on the table the recipe of Mutton Biryani, an all time favourite for the Mughlai Khana enthusiasts. If you ask me the “Gharana” of the biryani, I can declare it to be originally Lucknowi which found its proud inheritance in Kolkata since the later part of eighteenth Century. However, for me while admitting its glorious legacy, I find this biryani to be typically Kolkatan, which ignited my love for Mughlai food in childhood that I carry till date. Hope to get your love and affection for this recipe too.
