Shami kebab is a popular local variety of kebab from the Indian subcontinent. It is part of Pakistani, Punjabi, Indian and Bangladeshi cuisines. But originally it's from Iran. Served with sweet chilli sauce, tamarind sauce or plum chutney. They are also served along with sheer khurma or roghani naan during Eid celebrations.
To make the kebabs softer, add 1 egg to the mixture before shaping. You can freeze the kebabs for a month or longer after shaping them; simply thaw and fry as above.
