    I just love these kebabs, my mom would make them every week. They can be made in advance, frozen and fried when needed.

      It tastes very good, the only problem I faced was that the mixture was slightly loose, so while frying the kebabs broke away. This may be due to yoghurt. If this happens it is a good idea to add some bread crums
