Kilis is a city in Turkey which is my hometown and this kebab is one of its delicious dishes.


  • 3 pounds of ground lamb ( or ground beef )
  • 3 medium size of onions
  • 12 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbs of tomato paste
  • 1tbs of red pepper paste
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • salt
for the bottom:
  • 4 medium size of potatoes ( thinly sliced )

Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Place sliced potatoes on a 13"18" inch tray no space between them .

Chop onions and mash garlic. Take them in a big mixing bowl. Put all of the other ingredients into this bowl and knead them until well combine. Take this mixing on top of the potatoes and cover the surface with this mixing pressing gently.
Bake it for 40 minutes.

  • You can use eggplants instead of potatoes for the bottom.
  • You should slice thinly either potatoes or eggplants otherwise it might not cook.
