This Iranian Chelow Kabab recipe is taken from our new Middle Eastern page. For more delicious dishes from the Middle East like this one, click here.
Served on skewers over a bed of rice, Iranian Chelow Kabab is the country’s national dish. There are almost as many variations on the Chelow Kabab as there are chefs, as the seasonings can vary. This is a more traditional, rather basic recipe, with just a few herbs for seasoning. But believe me, it is packed full of flavor.
Iranian Chelow Kabab is best prepared on a grille, if you want the traditional and authentic flavor. I prefer real hardwood lump charcoal, but you could also use a gas grille with some good quality wood chips. Just please do not use petrol-based charcoal briquettes – they are not only bad for your health, they will in no way produce Chelow Kabab that is true to real Iranian cuisine.
