Shami kebab || Shami Kabab Recipe || How to Make Shami Kabab Recipe with step-by-step photos...
Shami kabab is a very traditional and popular Pakistani recipe, typically every household in Pakistan prepared shami kebab, it can be cooked with mutton, beef, lamb, and chicken
But I won't prefer to make Shami kabab with chicken, the real taste of shami kebab only comes with mutton and beef
In most houses, shami kebab is made with mince, but I did use beef boti(meat) if you want reshadar kebab so you will have to make it with small pieces of meat
A perfect for party dinner or any special occasion, this recipe is a combination of lentils, meat, and some whole spices, is cooked all together in water, and then blend well right after giving it to kebab shape, dip it in egg batter then fry. egg dipping is an optional choice for you..
I never do it, just simply fry it on the pan and then serve,shami kebab goes well with paratha, naan, pulao, and biryani
Secondly, People mostly complain that their kebabs break while frying …so the trick for frying perfect kebabs is to let them cook completely from 1 side first without touching them then flip them…and they will not break.
You can do one more variation and trick with shami kebab to bring smoky flavor to kebab, after blending the kebab meat, burn the charcoal, place one foil or steel small bowl in the center of the ground meat then put coal in it and drizzle some ghee over charcoal and cover the lid properly leave it for 10 minutes so that properly smokes could be absorbs
Unfortunately, I couldn't do this just because coal isn't available at home, but if you have you must do it so lets the go-ahead to know how to make tasty Shami kababs
