Shami kebab is one dish which i wanted to try for quite a long time. When i looked over in google i came across lots of recipes. But nothing gave me satisfaction untill i saw sanjeev kapoors recipe. It looked quite easy to try as well. So i tried it and loved it to the core.
Chicken Mince kebab
Murg Malai Kebab
This recipe calls for few ingredients, one of that is fried onions and chana dal. In the pictures you will see a whole lot of fried onions which i was cooking, that is because i was cooking some other curry as well. So when i fried onions for that curry, i took few spoonful of that for this kebab. But the measurements which i have given in the recipe is perfect for this recipe.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
