Which meat is lyulya kebab typically made of?
Lyulya kebab is a unique kebab variety popular throughout the Caucasus region. It typically consists of ground lamb combined with finely chopped onions. The mixture is seasoned with salt and black pepper, then skewered and grilled. Other types of meat such as fish and poultry can also be used in the preparation of lyulya.
What makes this kebab variety so unique is the process of kneading the meat for a long time so that it becomes denser and does not fall apart. The dish dates back to the 2nd century, and it was even praised by the famous Roman historian Pliny the Elder, as well as the famous Roman scientist Ptolemy.
It is recommended to pair lyulya with grilled vegetables, thinly sliced onions, sumac, and lavash.
