Popular throughout the Middle East, kebabs are usually small chunks of marinated lamb, beef, veal or fish, or minced lamb and beef, threaded onto skewers and cooked, often over coals. Kebabs also appear in the cuisine of other countries, for example, tikka in India. The meat may be served on or off the skewer, often with a salad, or commonly as a street food sold wrapped in flat bread.
