  • Now put a pan on the gas and heat the oil and keep the flame medium. Place a pan on it and cook it till it turns brown on all sides. When the kebabs are cooked, put them in a kitchen paper towel to remove excess oil.
  • Cook all the kebabs in the same way.
  • Now your Turkish kebab is ready, garnish it with curd mixture, lemon wedges, black pepper powder, and green chilies.
  • Serve it hot with tomato slices, onion rings,  mint leaves, lemon wedges, tomato sauce, salad.
    *If you are going for the traditional Turkish Kebab recipe, then cook the kebabs on an outdoor charcoal grill.


  • You can use a pan, external grill, gas grill, or broiler for making kebabs. We have prepared it in a pan and in olive oil.
  • You can use walnuts or other dry fruits instead of pistachios.
  • If using a wooden skewer, keep in mind, soak it in water for at least 10 minutes. Or you can use a metal skewer.
