Recipe for Chelo Kabab

Anyone who has been to Peter Cat restaurant knows this delicacy… It’s a combination of some kebabs with buttered Basmati rice topped with a sunny side up poached egg… Life becomes good just when you see it. Life becomes great when you taste it. People staying outside of Kolkata cant enjoy the authentic Chelo kebab, so here’s my home-made recipe which will get you the closest possible to the original feeling. Enjoy!!!
