Recipes Granny cooked for me: All-time drool-worthy!

kebab recipes

Gone are the days when I used to make paper boats to travel the seven seas of rain ponds and drool over those yummy recipes (especially, those onion pakodas) cooked by my Granny. Time passed by and as we grew up, my Granny improvised her cooking skills and graduated into a self-proclaimed chef. All what she wanted was that her grand children should remember her recipes for their lifetime.

Though her onion pakodas and aaloo bhajias were quite yummy, she developed them with her expertise so that they could match the universal appeal of kebabs. Today, I’m sharing two of her self-developed kebab recipes which are my all-time favorite and I’m sure would be quite drool-worthy for all the readers of The Style Symphony.
