Short description – in case u r in a hurry:

A decade back We had read about this elderly man who sold kind of ‘legendary kababs’ from a thela near Hamdard shop Chawri bazar. So I still remember travelling all the way from gurgaon to eat there and we found out that he had not come that day. This happens in a ‘one man show’.

A week back we decided to revisit the place. Reached there and started looking out. One gentleman actually walked us to the shop from a slight distance. On reaching we realised we were in front of a shop, not a thela. We met two brothers who were setting up shop.

We asked about the elderly person – Moinuddin and they said he is their father. Does not come regularly these days due to health reasons.

I was still looking around and they realised it. They showed me the picture of Moinuddin kababi on the wall and that is when I was assured that we were in the right place.

They now have a shop but they still sit on the outside and make kababs. Customers have the option to sit inside and eat or just stand on the road and eat, amidst an ocean of traffic – we loved doing the latter.

Detailed description – in case u hv the time to NJOY reading:

We saw the kababs being made in front of us. A heap of meat and spice paste was kept beside the kababi. He was taking handful of paste from there, rolling it around the metal seekh and putting that on fire. At regular intervals he was turning them around do that all the sides get cooked well. We cud see juices drop out of the kababs to the fire.

Once kababs were done he was handing them over to his brother who was adding a pudina chutney on top of the kababs, and placing slices of raw onions, juliennes of ginger, lemon pieces and finely chopped raw chillies on top of the kababs.

We saw some guys come and buy the kabab mix. On query they said that they are taking it home to tawa fry.

The kababs were lumpy on the outside, not plain. Loved the texture. Inside they were soft and very juicy. These thick Juices had intense flavor and taste of meat and spices. YUMM to the core. I just loved eating these as it is. The meat was YUMM.

I also tried some kababs with a dash of lemon, some others with juliennes of ginger, some with just chutney and some with permutations and combinations of these. Each was a different take on the kabab and were great.
