Steps to make Persian Chelow-kebab:

  1. Grind finely the meat 2-3 times or ask butcher do it for you. Grate the onion and remove the juice. In a big bowl, add grated onion, salt, pepper, lime juice and meat. Mix well and knead the meat mixture for 3-4 minutes and  until  well combined… Kneading the meat mixture for few minutes will make the meat like a paste that will stick together and not fall apart when your thread it on skewers..
  2. Then refrigerate the meat overnight. For threading the kebab you can use either  metal skewers or wooden ones. If you are using wooden skewers, you need to soak them in water overnight as well to prevent of burning in the oven.Next day, divide the  meat into seven or eight pieces and thread on the wooden skewers by pressing the meat and shaping it evenly. Preheat the oven to 180C for grilling the kebabs..
  3. You can do grill  the tomatoes too  but I just fried them in a pan. Place a flat bread or  (tortilla bread) on the baking  tray and place the kebabs skewers on it. Grill the kebab for 20-25   minutes.The juice from the kebab will soak into the flat bread as the kebab cooks.Thread the potatoes and peppers on the skewers as well. Grill the potatoes and bell peppers in oven 200C for 20-30 minutes..
  4. For refreshing mint sauce you need to blend all ingredients in a blender and make a puree..
  5. Once kebab and accompaniments are grilled, remove from the oven. Traditionally kebab kubideh is served  with steamed saffron rice (chelow/polow), cubes of butter on top of the rice, fresh herbs such as basil, chives, mint, onions. Sprinkle sumac powder on kebab. If you serve the kebab with rice, you can sprinkle sumac powder on the rice as well..
