My favourite as it tastes good and is healthy as well . There is a story behind this picture I have posted . My daughter Anisha has already posted this picture on Facebook with the title ka ka kabab . Which means crow ( ka ka in Tamil means crow ) kabab . No one got the point of what she posted instead I got so many likes n comments stating it looks yum . For the positive results of this picture I am posting this picture with its recipe again .
