My all times favorite...Lamb Tikka! Special barbecue in Peshawar

Lamb roast and barbecue is always very delicious especially to enjoy it in winters. The meat of a sheep in first year is called Lamb. It is more tender in comparison to sheep, cooked in different ways. I personally like the barbecue roasted as well cooked in big frying pan locally called as "Karahi"

Meat from Lamb is usually prominent in Mediterranean cuisines. Greece, Turkey, Middle East, Afghanistan etc, famous food almost in all over the world cooked with different recipes.
Lamb meat is always considered as one of the healthiest food because it is an excellent source of high quality protein as well an ideal source of Iron,

So here i am going to share about the Khyber lamb tika and barbecue in peshawar city of Pakistan. It is called as "Charsi Tika" I was just wondering about the name. Later on i came to know that there was a man who used to cook very delicious lamb meat only when he is intoxicated with "Charas", a kind of intoxicant.
That's why it is named after that person as "charsi Tika" The "intoxicant barbecue"
