Kebabs, also known as skewers, have been a popular dish in various cultures for centuries. The word ‘kebab’ originated from the Persian word ‘kabāb’ meaning ‘roasted meat’. Traditionally, kebabs were cooked over an open fire, but with the invention of the air fryer, we can now enjoy delicious and healthy kebabs without the need for a grill or oven.
