Mutton Shami Kabab (Meat and lentil patties)

You will need:

  • 1 kilo mutton boneless
  • 1 cup chickpea Dal (lentil)
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 tbsp. garlic chopped
  • 1 tbsp. ginger chopped
  • 2 tbsp. red chili powder
  • 2 tbsp. coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp. cumin powder
  • Salt to taste


  1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker or any thick bottom pan and fry onion till soft. 
  2. Then add all of the above ingredients, mix well and cook with 2 cups of water till mutton is more than done. Its alright if the meat is slightly overcooked. 
  3. Open the lid of the cooker once its done . 
  4. If you find lot of liquid, try to cook the meat on high heat without the lid on. Let all the juices evaporate and once its dry, remove the meat gravy in a flat plate and let it cool. 
  5. Take a chopper and add the meat mixture little by little and grind to a smooth dough like mixture. Remove all the meat mixture in a large bowl and add the following ingredients:

  • 1 cup chopped fresh green coriander leaves
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mint leaves
  • 2 to 3 green chilies finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala powder (allspice)
  • 1 egg (optional)
Mix the above ingredients well with the mutton mixture and make small cutlet shaped Kabab and shallow fry on a frying pan with 2 or 3 tbsp of ghee or cooking oil. Fry till golden color on each side and serve hot with mint chutney.                      

Serves 6
