How to make Chicken Shami Kabab

  1. Wash the minced chicken in a colander and drain out the excess water.
  2. Next, add to it all the ingredients, except the egg, chopped onion and chopped coriander. Then pour in 1/2 cup of water and pressure cook for 15 mins on a low flame.
  3. Let it cool a little and add in the eggs. Grind it well to form a paste.
  4. Now add in the chopped onions and coriander. Then make lemon size balls and flatten them.
  5. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry till they turn golden brown on a medium flame.
  6. Serve it hot as a snack or starter.

My Tip:

Adding the eggs before grinding it, this gives it a fine texture and water is not required while grinding.
