Chelo Kebab – Persian

Chelo kebab  is an  persian dish consisting of cooked rice and one of the many varieties of Iranian Kebab.

It is served with accompaniments such as butter, sumac powder, basil, onions, and grilled tomatoes. The traditional beverage accompanied with chelo kebab is doogh, an Iranian yogurt-based drink, sometimes made of carbonated water.




In the old bazaar tradition, the rice and accompaniments are served first, immediately followed by the kebabs, which are threaded on skewers, as well as a piece of flat bread (typically lavash).A skewer is placed directly on the rice and while holding the kebab down on the rice with the bread, the skewer is quickly pulled out.
