  2. Hi Rownak,

    Can you tell me why my meatballs/kofta/chapli kabab always shrinks when i put them in the pan–even if i put bread crumbs on them..i noticed in this recipe you omitted bread crumbs. any advice? thanks!

    • Hi Faria!
      Reason for shrinking kabab, your kabab mince is too dry and lean (and using bread crumb will make dry), add moisture in it, like onion and bit of oil, then you will get perfect kabab. I used bread instead of bread crumb, if my mince has lots water then I would use bread crumbs. Lean mince is healthy but it makes your kabab to shrink and dry.
