2. Mutton Shami Kebab


Shami kebabs are a popular snack during Ramadan and also a great side dish with chicken biryani.


500 gm boneless mutton

1 cup chana dal

Half teaspoon turmeric powder

10 cloves garlic

2 inch ginger

3 green chillies, finely chopped

Half pecans, finely chopped

3 spring mint leaves/pudina

Salt as required

Oil as needed

Whole Spices

4 red chillies

1 tsp black pepper powder

5 cloves

Half inch cinnamon stick

2 cardamom

Half tsp shahi jeera

2 black cardamoms

How To Make Mutton Shami Kebab

1. To begin, wash and soak chana dal for minimum 1-2 hours.

2. Wash mutton pieces and pressure cook it with soaked chana dal, turmeric powder, salt ginger, garlic and whole spices.

3. Once the mutton is done, pass it through a colander and collect the stock in a separate bowl which you can use later to make any mutton curry.

4. Collect the cooled mutton and dal mix in a grinder jar and grind to make a fine dough. The dough may look fibrous because of the meat.

5. Add finely chopped onion, chopped green chillies, chopped mint and coriander and mix till everything incorporates well.

6. Heat a wide pan and grease it with 1-2 tablespoon oil.

7. Pinch a lemon-sized ball from the mutton mix and flatten it to shape a round disk.

8. Similarly, make rest of the kebabs and shallow fry from both sides in a wide pan till they turn dark brown in colour.

9. Serve with onion rings, lemon and dhaniya pudina chutney.

So folks, get all the ingredients ready before Eid approaches.
