Quick Mint Yoghurt Sauce
The word kebab comes from the Arabic language and refers to cooking or burning on an open fire. It's thought that soldiers would cook meat by wrapping it onto their swords and putting the swords over the camp fires. This was a means of just eating for them but it gave the food a wonderful rustic flavour.
This kebab comes from Afganistan but is also popular in Pakistan and what is unique about it is that it is made purely with beef and contains some key ingredients from the region such as anardana (pomegranate seeds) and coriander seeds and it's this combination that give them a unique flavour. (You can make these with minced lamb as I do.)
The mixture is formed into a flat patty that is shaped like a flip flop or 'chapal' which is where it gets it's name from and should be served with fresh tomatoes and naan (or pitta bread).
