When we think of one of the most popular and world-renowned legacy dishes of our nation the delicious and mouth-watering Pakistani chapli kabab usually tend to be at the top of the list.

Originating from Peshawar hence popularly known as Peshawari Chapli Kabab, this specialty of the Pashtun Cuisine’s name is derived from a Pashto word called chaprikh, meaning flat indicating the shape of the globally popular kababs. Mughal culinary influences in the region popularised a number of kebab dishes, resulting in local recipes such as the chapli kebab

While the delectable dish has been one of the major reasons why people travel from far and wide to Peshawar, it is now widely available across Pakistan and even Afghanistan, and India.

The city of Peshawar, where the recipe took hold, has over 2,000 kebab houses that serve the chapli kebab. Such eateries have rapidly expanded in other cities as well. Today, the chapli kebab is featured on the menu of South Asian restaurants across the world.
