These are flavour-packed thin beef or lamb patties full of fresh herbs and spices. In Afghanistan, they are a popular street food. My mother recalls that, when she was a child, on long family road trips, they would make pit stops at chapli kebab stalls on the roadside. She remembers the redness of the patties, as they were usually packed with chilli and served wrapped in hot tandoori-baked naans with fresh vegetables and some tangy chutney on top.
