The book also caters to vegetarians as well, including vegetarian kebabs, and recipes for chutneys and breads.
“I have successfully shattered the misconception that ‘good’ kebabs can only be mutton, chicken or seafood. Being a vegetarian, I can vouch for the fact that the book has some great options like Asparagus Kebabs, a contemporary recipe I demonstrated at a fusion cooking show in Germany, the Red Kidney Bean Kebab that is loved by children because of their fixation with rajma, Bottle Gourd Kebab which I like eating when I am in the mood for a light meal and Arbi Kebab which is one of my favourites. Then there is Corn Kebab which is my daughter Tanisha’s favourite, Rice and Corn Kebabs that is one of the easiest to make, Jackfruit Kebab which again is very popular at home, Lotus Stem Kebabs that has received rave reviews, and Sesame Potato Kebabs that is ordered often and a lot more,” he says.
Definitely a collector’s item, this book is a potpourri of delectable flavours making it the ultimate indulgence for all Kebab lovers.
