A Shammi Kebab is a burger made from chana dal and meat (can be beef, lamb or chicken), these spicy kebabs are of Mughal origin, common throughout the Indian subcontinent. The version I am giving you is an Ismaili or Khoja one with lots of ginger.
1 tbl spoon grated ginger
4-5 cloves garlic; minced
1 400gm Can of Chick peas drained
3-4 green chillies;
6 stems coriander leaves (2 tblspn)
3 stems mint leaves (1 tblspn)
1 Lime; juiced
¼ tspn Garam masala
- Place all the ingredients in a food processer and grind, not too smooth leave it slightly chunky.
- Mold the mixture in to burger like patties about 1/4" thick and 2" in diameter. Place on a greased baking tray, and bake in a pre-heated oven to 350º F. 25 minutes.
