Shami kababs are a popular Afghan and Indian variety of kabab, also famous kebabs found in Pakistani cuisine.Shami Kabab recipe is great snack made with mutton and chana dal.The basic ingredient for kebabs is usually mutton but it can very well be substituted by chicken or fish or even veggie.Kebabs are cooked well with spices and then grounded to a smooth mixture.Whole spices as they do not grind well in the grinder, people tend to buy shami kebab masala from market , but i normally like preparing masala at home.
For best results, keep the ground dough in the refrigerator or 1 hour for better binding of the shami kababs.It gets easy to make the discs when you refrigerate the dough.I am sure once you make them, you will be compelled to try them out again and again.click here for recipe..
