Sheek Kebab Walla @ Meena Bazaar!

Sheek Kebab...A mixture of and spices thinly wrapped around a skewer and grilled, usually in a tandoor.Sheek Kebab or Sheek Kabab is famous for its taste and aroma. Todays micro oven and modern cooking style is gradually killing this taste from far Afgan. Today only a few traditional sheek kabab wallas (vendors) are vending the royal taste here and there...I found one of them in our very own Meena Bazaar, next to Jama Masjid...
