There are so many kebabs, tikkas and tikkiyas in the country but there only few which got the popularity like chicken tikka or tandoori kebab but there is one more kebab which is one the most talked about kebabs in my family. My father and uncles say that my Grandmother used to make the best goolar ke kebabs ever and nobody can ever recreate the same flavour.
Goolar means fig and this kebab is called Gooler Ke Kebab because of the seed texture which comes from Khus Khus (Posto Dana).
