While the term kebab or shish kebab is sometimes used in English to refer to any skewered meat chunks, kebab is more commonly associated with various meat dishes that originated in Persia and Anatolia medieval kitchens. Though the term has ancient origins, Turks popularised it to refer to multiple grilled and broiled slices of meat that can be served on skewers, stews, meatballs, and other dishes. Parallel to Muslim influence, this cuisine has spread around the world. According to Moroccan traveler Ibn Battuta, during the Delhi Sultanate (1206–1526 CE), the kebab was served in royal houses, and even commoners enjoyed it for breakfast with naan. From the now-ubiquitous doner kebab fast food to the many variations of shish kebabs, such as Southeast Asia’s satays, kebab dishes have been adopted and integrated with local cooking styles and innovations. The skewer is indeed referred to by the Turkish word şiş (sword). Shish taouk “Chicken kabob” is similar.
