2 burger buns
2 tbsp butter
Veg Mayonnaise
Tomato ketchup
1 onion cut into slices
1 tomato cut into slices

For the Shami kabab 

150 gms minced meat (kheema)
3 tbsp chana dal
1 onion roughly cut
4 cloves of garlic
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
2 tomatoes deseeded and chopped
1 tsp garam masala powder
½ tsp pepper powder
Chopped coriander and mint leaves
1 onion finely chopped
½ tsp dry mango powder
2 tbsp rice flour
oil for frying


  • Take kheema, chana dal, tomatoes, garlic, red chilli powder, onion, and salt in a pressure cooker.
  • Add 1 cup water and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
  • Open the lid, and check if all the water has evaporated.
  • If not, switch on the gas and cook for a few minutes till all the water gets absorbed.
  • Now allow the mix to cool and grind to a fine paste without adding water.
  • Transfer this paste to a bowl, add garam masala powder, dry mango powder, pepper powder, finely chopped onions, coriander and mint leaves and rice flour and mix well.
  • Combine everything together and check for taste. Add salt, red chilli powder or dry mango powder if required.
  • Now take medium sized balls and flatten them to make patties.
  • Keep the patties ready.
  • (In case you feel the shami kebab mix is not stiff or sticky, you can add some more dry masalas along with rice flour.)
  • Now heat some oil in a non stick pan and shallow fry the patties till golden brown in colour.
  • Transfer to a tissue paper to absorb excess oil.
  • Your shami kababs are now ready.
  • Finally for the assembly, cut the burger buns into 2 pieces and toast the insides lightly with butter.
  • Take the base, place onion rings, tomato rings on top and place the shami kabab over it.
  • Now add Veg mayonnaise and tomato ketchup on top.
