The actual Iskendar Kebabs are served over a bed of rice and the original recipe does not use Chicken but thin slices of mutton. Slices of meat are placed over boiled rice flavored with coriander. A layer of bread is placed on top of the meat cooked in tomatoes. The final layer is of fresh yogurt, so much so that it soaks the bread layer. Sprinkled with paprika and coriander for garnishing. - 19 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
You can also try this recipe with very thinly cut beef slices or minced meat. For the best taste, real butter could be used. Another suggestion could be to add some garlic paste to the yoghurt. The name is not coming from Alexander the Great, but from the name of the cook who invented and made this dish famous decades ago. His name was "Iskender" and he was from the city of Bursa.
