Shami Kebabs(Minced chicken Kebabs)

Posted on Updated on


Shami kebabs or Shaami Kebabs are a popular Afghan and Indian variety of kebab, also famous kebabs found in Pakistani cuisine. Shami Kebab 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 kebabs. 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.

Let’s get started with our shami kebab recipe.

Preparation time : 1.5 hours

Cooking time : 10 mins

Serves : 5-6

 

Ingredients

500 gm chicken/mutton mince
2 cups water
1 cup bengal gram / chana dal
4 green cardamom
1 inch cinnamon stick
8-10 black pepper balls
3 red chillies
2 bay leaves
1 tsp dhaniya(coriander seeds)
1 tsp jeera(cumin seeds)
1 chopped onions
4-5 garlic cloves
1 inch ginger chopped
Salt to taste

For binding Shami kebabs

1 egg
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 green chilly finely chopped
1 medium size finely chopped onions
handful of coriander leaves / cilantro
oil for frying

 

Directions || How to make Shami kebabs

Cook everything till all the water has evaporated from it and the meat is tender.
If the water is present in the mixture, the binding of the kabab will be difficult and they will just fall apart.
Remove the pan from the heat and set aside to cool.
Grind the meat in a food processor to form a smooth mixture.
In a mixing bowl , add cooked minced meat/chicken ,onions ,garam masala powder, salt and coriander.
Mix them all together.
