Lamb Bun Kebab
Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

A Bun kebab consists of a spicy patty which is shallow-fried, onions, and chutney and/or raita in a hamburger or hot dog bun. The beef and egg bun kebab is the most popular, especially with the street vendors.

Unlike a hamburger patty, the bun kebab is mixed with ground lentils, ground cumin, and an egg batter into a mixture which is then fried in ghee or oil. One may find bun kebab at vendor stalls throughout Pakistan, with regional differences evident. A bun kebab can also be served with a fried egg or omelette (known as ‘anda shami’).

Busy stalls selling bun kabab are a typical sight on the streets of Karachi which come alive at night after locals finish work and need a quick and spicy snack. There are many regional variations to this street food favourite, one of which is the addition of a fried egg or an omelette.
