These kababs are the common snacks of our family. My mom keeps frozen kababs every time at home. This is a quick serving for guests or whenever you want to have a quick meal. We enjoy it with bread slice or some kind of flatbread.

We all sisters make shami kababs with mom. We do this after every bakra eid, when we have lot of mincemeat especially for making kababs. We make it with chana daal and eggs and add green and red chillies.
