Chicken Shami Kabab

This recipe is given to my by friend Jamila Javaid .This is her mother’s recipe. I tasted these Kababs first time at her home.They were really good. I asked for the recipe and Jamila was kind enough to pass me the recipe.Thank You Jamila.. :)
These kababs are great as a snack on their own with chutney or dips of your choice. They also taste super good in a burger.Make the burger with all the other must have stuff ( mayo,lettuce,cucumber,tomato,cheese,onions and pickles) but replace the regular burger Pattie with this Shami tikkya. One extra yummy Desi burger is ready .Serve with chilled Pepsi,Tangy raita and crispy French fries…

What you will need:

  • Chicken : One 1200 gm ( skinned and cut into curry pieces)
  • Chana Daal : 1 cup – 250 gms ( wash the daal and soak it in sweet water for 3 hours)

A – Kabab Masala :

  • Onion : 2 medium ( peeled and quartered)
  • Garlic : 5 – 7 bulbs ( peeled)
  • Ginger : 2 inch piece ( peeled and quartered)

(Put these three ingredients in a blender and blend into a smooth paste.)

  • Red Chilies ( whole) : 5
  • Black Peppers ( whole) : ½ tsp
  • Clove ( whole) : ½ tsp
  • Cardamom black : 2 pieces
  • Cinnamon ( whole) : 2 small sticks
  • Salt : 2 tsp ( or up to taste)

B – Hara Masala :

  • Fresh Cilantro : 1 bunch
  • Fresh Mint : 1 bunch
  • Green chilies : 8 ( up to taste)
  • Onions : 3 medium ( peeled and quartered)

Put all the above in the chopper and chop finely. Keep aside.

C – Taste Enhancers:

  • Coriander powder : ½ tsp
  • Cardamom powder : ½ tsp
  • Garam Masala : 1 tsp
  • Tamarind pulp : 1 ½ tbsp ( you can use lemon juice too …up to taste)
  • Egg : 1 ( well beaten)

How you will make it:

  1. Put the Chicken and soaked Chana daal (with water it was soaked in) in a pan.
  2. Add all the ingredients of Kabab Masala – A into it.
  3. Add about 2 cups of sweet water into it and boil gently on a medium heat until the water evaporates. By this time the chicken and daal will be tender to form a mushy paste. If not then add ½ cup of water again and cook till both are done.
  4. Let the mixture cool enough to handle. Discard the whole Masala and debone the chicken.
  5. Grind this mixture into a smooth paste.
  6. Add Hara Masala – B into it and mix.
  7. Now add the Taste Enhancers – C and mix with your hands.
  8. Shape into Shami Tikkyas and Freeze them.
  9. When you want to fry them, take out from the freezer, dip in well beaten egg and shallow fry on medium heat till cooked through.
  10. Serve with dips of your choice. Enjoy.
