Things to know about Shami Kebab Recipe

The Indian Traditional Shami Kebab is a spherical minced meat dish usually made from mutton or chicken. The meat is a type of patty which is grilled.

It is believed that the word “Shami” comes from the word “Shaam” which means “dinner” and “night” in Persian. “Shaam” also means “night” in Urdu and “Hindi”. The name is also believed to be derived from the scent of “Itr” which is called “Shamama”. It may also refer to Modern Syria, Bilad al-Sham.

The dish is famous in Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh, and Punjab. Apart from India, the dish is also consumed in  Bangladesh and the Middle East.

The dish can be garnished with lemon juice and served with onions. Traditional Chutneys like Green Chutney, which is a sauce made with cilantro and mint, are often served with the dish. Shami Kebab is served on the occasion of Eid along with Sheer Khurma, a vermicelli pudding.
