Pakistani Chapli Kabab from Beef Mince:

This is easy, super quick, and extremely delicious, flat as a disc Beef Mince kabab recipe known as Chapli Kabab and Peshawari kabab.

Even if you have no experience with cooking, you can still make them professionally once you follow the recipe accurately and go through the post carefully.

You can make lamb, mutton, or Chicken Chapli kababs too, by just replacing the meat mince of your choice.

Chapli kabab Masala:

Firstly, take the ground beef mince in a bowl, add the roasted crushed spices with some seasoning, and then chopped veggies, egg, and some fresh coriander leaves. Don’t forget to add the gram flour, which helps hold the patty together. Last but not least, softened butter makes the patty soft and moist.

Additional fat pieces of lamb are mixed with mince for extra moisture and softness.

Marinate this batter for at least half an hour. Then at the time of frying, add the chopped tomatoes to the mince mixture.

This is my family’s favorite one; it is juicy and hiding inside some chopped vegetables (from the Kids ) and some spices and a buttery touch. Helping the patty in holding the ingredients together is the gram flour.

This recipe is easy, mix ingredients in a large bowl, make a flat patty, and shallow fry to enjoy with naan, yogurt, or chutney.

Chapli kabab flat patty / juicy Beef patty:

These juicy and succulent kebabs have a striking resemblance with the burger patties.

Start making the flat disc shape patty of the beef mince mixture by compressing it with your hands. And put a tomato slice on the top of the patty.

Remember, the patty will shrink upon cooking. Chapli kabab is usually thick and big kababs; we prefer a medium single serving size. So make shape accordingly.

You can also freeze these uncooked patties.

These Kababs are fried on medium-low flame with a drizzle of oil. Only make sure one thing that turns this kabab a single time once the side is fully done or looks golden. The more you turn, there will be more chances of breaking the patty.

You can also fry them in ghee, butter, olive oil, etc. But for making it more healthy, grill them on a greased pan and serve hot.

Beef Chapli Kabab:

They are ideal as an appetizer with some chutney or a meal with some tandoori chapatti, naan, taftaan, or Sheermaal.

The outcome is perfect on the palate, and thus the region and the original chapli kabab makers deserve the highest grade on sharing this delicious local classic with the rest of the world.


Since these are high-fat kabab, they can make a great keto main course. Make sure to reduce or skip onions and tomatoes. Use almond flour instead of cornflour as a binding agent. Also, add extra fat lamb fat pieces in the center of the kabab when you roll it.

Some people also add scrambled eggs in the raw mince to mimic fat like the taste. I just found it an extra step that doesn’t make a lot of difference in taste. If you wish, you can add it to meet your daily macros.

    The combination of spices in this recipe are making my mouth water! This is the second recipe I’ve come across this week using gram flour (I had to look up what it is), but it turns out my local grocery store carries it, so yay! You mentioned adding chunks of lamb? So, I’m guess this would be excellent if I used 1/2 beef mince and 1/2 lamb mince? Thanks!
