Excellent. I followed recipe except used ground turkey meat, 7% fat, left in fridge 2 hours, then made some sausage like rolls, fried them with pan top on, in olive oil till done (about 165FÂș), then put under broiler to brown. everyone loved them. My wife has lived in Iran and thought it ranked very well with what she remembered.

WOW!! This was better than any restaurant I've had, my husband couldn't tell what type of meat I used, he couldn't believe it was ground beef, because it was so moist and flavorful. I did have a problem with the meat falling off the skewer though any tips would be helpful....

Holy Moses these are good! Aside from adding chopped parsley (which I did), I can't think of anything to make them better except to make more!! I served it with tzatziki sauce, basmati rice, halloumi cheese and an arugula and tomato salad. YUM!

Wonderful flavor! I didn't have time to refrigerate overnight, so I let it chill for a couple of hours. Wow! What tender meat! This was outstanding, and I intend to make again and serve with a yougurt sauce, as that tangy flavor would be a real compliment to the meat. The only change I made was to add some chopped italian parsley to the mix. I used beef this time, but will make again with lamb.

Excellent! I also add a bit of Sumac and squeeze a bit of extra lemon over the cooked kababs! My husband and I LOVE this dish!

I am ecstatic that this recipe is on Recipe Zaar!! This dish is a family favorite and I've been trying to get it right. Great combination here! I only omitted the flour. Don't forget to include grilled tomatoes along with the hot basmati rice as well as jalapenos, a yogurt & cucumber salad (mast-o khiar)or shirazi salad (cucumber,tomato&onion) &/or the spice sumac to sprinkle over the dish(available in food specialty stores). Thanks for the post!

This is OMG good!I used ground turkey and mixed everything up in the am. I used tlrcausa's idea of making sausages and cooking in some olive oil on the stove top. Mine browned nicely and I didn't need to put them under the broiler. I served with tzatiki. So, so good!. I can't wait to make these again. Thanks so much for posting.

This recipe did not turn out as expected. Not only did the kababs break apart while grilling, but they were very dry and nothing like the kababs you would get at a persian restaurant. I was so disappointed :(
