Shami Kebab Method / Tarika:

1.Take a deep sauce pan, boil beef pieces in water with red chili, cumin seeds, coriander leaves and salt. The quantity of water should enough to cover all the beef pieces. Boil the meat for 30 minutes or until they become soft.
2.After that when beef become tender and soft add graham lentils and add water if required (when all the previous water has been dried) and let it cook until lentils become tender and soft.
3.After that turn off the flame and let it cool for at room temperature so that all the steam escape out, then in a chopper put the mixture and chop so that the chicken and lentils would mix together with the spices. Don’t chop them too much otherwise you kebabs would break after frying.
4.Take out the chopped mixture in a wide mixing bowl, now its time to add the remaining herbs and spices i.e. coriander and mint leaves, green chilies, black pepper, hot mix spice and egg. Mix all of them together to make smooth dough of kebab.
5.Now take small piece from the mixture and first make a ball just like meat ball and then press it by using your palm and make flat circular kebab. Similarly, make rest of the kebabs.
6.Take a frying pan and heat oil to shallow fry the kebabs, Put the kebabs in the pan and fry till they become brown in color from both sides. If the kebabs are too soft to handle while frying then coat them in egg before frying.
