Making of the Ghost ki Shami

  1. To begin making the Mutton Shami Kebab recipe, wash and soak chana dal for minimum 1-2 hours.
  2. Wash mutton pieces nicely and pressure cook it with soaked chana dal, turmeric powder, salt, ginger, garlic and whole spices.
  3. Once the mutton is done, pass it through a colander and collect the stock in a separate bowl which you can use later to make any mutton curry.
  4. Collect the cooled mutton and dal mix in a grinder jar and grind to make a fine dough. The dough may look fibrous because of the meat.
  5. Add finely chopped onion, chopped green chilies, chopped mint and coriander and mix nicely till everything incorporates well.
  6. Heat a wide pan and grease it with 1-2 tablespoon oil.
  7. Pinch a lemon sized ball from the mutton mix and flatten it to shape a round disk.
  8. Similarly make rest of the kebabs and shallow fry from both sides in a wide pan till they turn dark brown in colour.
  9. Mutton Shami Kebabs are a perfect snack option during Ramadan and also a great side dish with Chicken Biryani. Serve with onion rings, lemon and dhaniya pudina chutney.
