thanksgiving tahdig

I've been mixing things up on Thanksgiving for the past couple of years, and it's a hit every time. Bringing in Mediteranean and Persian notes into your meal can add so much to the table, literally and figuratively! Last year I went for a Mediteranean theme, with my potato fatteh and hummus, but two years ago I went full persian and made a sweet potato tahdig. This year, I'm going to make a Tahdig, keeping in mind the feedback I got from looking at my husband grudgingly picking off the sweet potato from his rice as he ate(he's a picky one). So this year, I'm skipping the veggies and keeping the flavor...

Chapli Kabab Sliders

Chapli Kabab Sliders

This recipe is very close to classic chapli kababs, which are kababs native to the northern parts of Pakistan. Every region has their version, but it's differentiating feature is a slice of tomato pressed into one side. It's then pan fried until it has a nice, crispy crust. This is no way an authentic recipe, but it gives you the best of both worlds, a chapli kabab and a burger...You can skip the burger buns and make these a great gluten free meal.
