Iftar Recipe: Pita Kebab

If you have extra time to spare before Iftar, I highly suggest you attempt this family recipe of mine for kebabs! You can either enjoy the kebabs alone or pair it with something else. For this recipe, I combined my kebabs with pitas and topped it off with a yogurt dressing.

Prep time (40min) + Cook time (30 min) = Total time (1h 10min)

Servings: 5 servings

Yield: 20 kebabs, 10 pita kebabs



500g minced beef

3 green chillies

3 green chilli padis (optional, add if you like it spicy!)

1 small onion

½ cup of fried shallots

½ cup of mint leaves

½ cup of coriander (with roots)

1 flat tablespoon of ginger garlic paste

⅓ tablespoon of cumin

⅓ tablespoon of turmeric

1 flat tablespoon of biryani powder

1 ½ cups of boiled & drained lentils

Cooking oil

Salt, sugar & black pepper to taste

Yogurt Dressing

½ cup greek yogurt

1 handful of coriander

1 cucumber

1 tomato

⅓ cup of lemon juice

Salt, sugar &black pepper to taste


Lettuce (optional)

3 pitas, cut in half


1. Blend kebab ingredients.

To make the kebabs, add all the kebab ingredients, except for the minced beef, into a blender. Add just enough oil so that the ingredients can blend easily. Once blended, combine the blended mixture and minced beef in a food processor and blend again until well combined and the beef is fine. Don’t forget to add your salt, sugar and black pepper!

2. Roll kebabs and bake in the oven.

Preheat the oven to 180°C and roll beef mixture into balls. Place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. (Here I used an oiled baking tray but the kebabs stuck to the tray after baking so I’d recommend using parchment paper instead!) Note: Instead of baking the kebabs in the oven, you can alternatively either place them in an air-fryer or deep fry the kebabs over the stove.

Place them in the oven for 30 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges. Take them out and they’re ready to assemble!

3. Chop and mix yogurt ingredients.

For the yogurt dressing, chop up the tomato, cucumber and coriander and mix them all in a bowl. To that, squeeze your lemon and add the yogurt. Again, don’t forget to add your salt, sugar and black pepper! And voila, your dressing is done.

4. Assemble everything together.

To prepare the pitas, heat them slightly over the stove and cut them into half to open them up. An optional way to prepare them would be to start with a layer of chopped romaine lettuce followed by the kebabs (half a pita could fit 2 kebabs but you can decide how you want to assemble them). Finally, scoop some of the yogurt dressing on top of the kebabs and your pita kebabs are ready!

5. Enjoy!

Now just wait for Iftar before you dig in. Bismillah!
