Shami Kabab, also called and written Shami Kebab is a very famous variation of Kababs in the sub continent. Although, origin of Shami Kababs is Afghanistan, it has been adopted as a regular food in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. Kababs are cooked with slight difference in different Asian Cuisines in terms of spices, ingredients and cooking style. It is made with a patty of ground meat (beef or mutton), with chickpeas, and eggs which creates stickiness and some spices for taste enhancement. To make Shami Kababs, first meat is minced, then mixed with eggs and ground chickpeas and then kneaded to mix all these ingredients well. Some additional spices like chili and pepper are also added to the mix to make them spicier. Round patties are then formed with hands which are fried to eat or stored for later use.

shami kababs are great in taste and very easy to make. When I see my wife and mom making these kababs, I realize that even I can make them myself. Just make the mixture, knead well, add eggs and make tikki. Isn't that all? Yes if it is the whole recipe, then I am sure I can make them myself and make you enjoy with my hand made shami kababs.
