Shami kabab is a highly flavoured and delicious dish. It differs from the normal shami due to the presence of a mixture of spices and onions. It is also made with minced meat (Kheema). It is very easy to make and goes well with almost any dish. I have given the recipe below.


Shami dough
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp pepper powder
pinch of asafoetida
1 big onion chopped finely
1/4 tsp dry mango powder
chopped coriander leaves
oil for frying

For the shami dough

200 gms minced meat (kheema)
100 gms Bengal gram dal
2 Big onion chopped
8 cloves garlic
salt to taste
1 tbsp red chilli powder
4 tomatoes chopped
Coriander leaves
Mint leaves
4 or 5 drops of lemon juice
Rice powder (optional)


Add all the ingredients of the shami dough in a pressure cooker except lemon juice and rice powder with 1/4 cup of water. Cook for 5 minutes. Do not overcook as the shamis will sputter when fried. Open the lid and add lemon juice. Cool for some time. Then grind it into a fine paste. Do not add water. In case the shami mixture is very sticky, add rice powder and mix well. Then add garam masala, pepper powder, asafoetida, dry mango powder, chopped coriander leaves and onions and mix well. Divide it into 8 or 10 equal portions; pat them into any shape and shallow fry in oil 2 or 3 at a time. Cook till the shami kababs turn brown in colour. Serve hot with tomato sauce as snack or serve hot with rice.
