Gola Kebab

I am a big fan of kebabs, when i was working in Delhi i use to live on kebabs & pani puri...........this continued for about three years till i got married.......after coming to USA i started experimenting by making differnet types of kebabs, as i always use to ask the kebabwala's for the recipes, & fortunately they use to tell me. i like making varieties of kebabs, this is an authentic Pakistani dish, there are different ways of making it........i actually cooked it in a different way .........though i have mentioned the alternate way of cooking this dish...the method by which i have made is easier for you can use any method, whichever is convenient to you..the kebabs turned out really well, my hubby liked it very was really yummy.........i hope you all will like the recipe..
