Paneer Gulnar ( Wazwan Appetizer)

Gulnar Sheekh Kebab origin is even more fascinating. It’s said that kebabs originated in Persia, and later spread to other Middle Eastern and Asian countries. This method of grilling or roasting small cuts of meat, threaded on skewers, proved of immense help in the period when fuel was scarce. Historians even claim that soldiers used their swords to cook the mutton over fire . 

But When it came to Kashmir … Kashmiri Pandits gave it’s flavor by introducing Fenugreek leaves and annar danna … Makes it exquisite …
