This is my first try at shammi kabab. It's really quite delicious. Made with minced meat and bengal gram dal /chana dal, this will be a great appetizer or a starter.
500 gm - Minced meat ( goat or lamb )
1/2 cup - Bengal gram dal / chana dal
1 - Onion, chopped
6 flakes - Garlic
1 inch piece - Ginger
2 - Green chili
2 tsp - Crushed red chili powder
10 - Pepper corns
1 - Cinnamon
3 - Cloves
4 - Cardamoms
2 cup - Water
1 - Egg
Oil to deep fry
1 ) In a heavy bottom utensil, put minced meat, chana dal, onion, ginger, garlic, green chili, crushed red chili powder, pepper corns, cinnamon, cloves, cardamoms, water and salt.
4 ) Grind the cooked ingredients to a fine paste. Add one egg and mix well with the paste. Mix paste with finely chopped onion, green chili and coriander leaves. Make small balls and flatten, like in the pic below.
5 ) Heat oil in a wok or kadai. Deep fry till golden brown in color on both sides.
Serve hot with coriander chutney.
While frying if the kababs are breaking apart, then dip each kabab in beaten egg and fry.
