Welcome to Kebab Quest, where we take you on a tantalizing journey to discover the secrets of crafting the perfect Kebabs. As lovers of exceptional Meat and all things grilled, we know that a great Kebab is more than just skewered meat. It’s a dance of flavors and textures, a celebration of the art of grilling, and a representation of cultural traditions from our history books.

So what really makes a great Kebab? Read on to find out.

The ingredients: 


Like any recipe, the quality of the Meat used is a critical factor in creating a truly exceptional Kebab. Great meat not only provides the foundation for the Kebab’s flavor but also affects its texture, juiciness, and overall enjoyment. High-quality Meat like ours is pasture-raised, grass-fed and free range, giving the Meat a richer and more complex flavor profile compared to Meat from animals confined to cages and pumped with antibiotics and growth hormones. It’s also leaner and therefore healthier.

The moistness

Have you ever bitten into a Kebab and truly savoured how moist it is? It’s borderline juicy, with a swirl of flavours that add oomph to every bite. This juiciness is also attributed to using high-quality Meat and is the marking of a sensational Kebab. Premium Meat allows for the Kebab to retain its moisture and tenderness during the cooking process, resulting in a juicy and succulent kebab. 


Grind size 

When you bite into an average Kebab, the texture might feel pasty or dry. This has everything to do with finding the perfect grind size. Grind size refers to the coarseness or fineness of emat that is used in the Kebab mixture. A courser grind size results in a more textured, chunky consistency (think Seekh Kebabs), while a finer grind size can result in a more tender, juicy mouthfeel (think Shammi Kebabs). A super fine grind size can also absorb the marinade and spices more evenly, resulting in a flavourful Kebab (think Galouti Kebabs). 



An exceptional Kebab is a culmination of high-quality Meat, herbs and spices. Well seasoned meat that’s infused with the flavours of the marinade will give you a rich, complex taste, this is what will set a generic Kebab apart from a truly Gourmet one. 

Cultural authenticity

We believe that great Kebabs must honour their cultural roots, it should showcase traditional spices and cooking methods that have been passed down through generations. And while one can add a spin to a recipe, we try to keep the flavours and textures true. We hunt high and low to find heirloom recipes that can do justice to the culture it comes from. For instance, our Amritsari Seekh Kebabs feature a recipe from an old, Amritsari cookbook. 

With our expertise and passion for Meat, our mission was always to uncover the elements that make a Kebab truly exceptional. From sourcing the best ingredients to mastering the cooking techniques and finding the right recipes, we are dedicated to bringing you the ultimate Kebab experience, always.
