200g Chicken Boneless (cut in small pieces)

1 tbsp gram masala
1/2 tsp turmeric
1-2 green chillies
1 cup chana dal
Salt to taste
2 eggs (for egg wash)
Oil for shallow  frying

Method  of preparation

Take a mixing bowl, add chicken, ginger-garlic paste, garam masala powder, turmeric, green chillies, and salt, mix and marinate the chicken for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Now in a pressure cooker add soak chana dal and the marinated chicken with 3 cups of water and pressure cook it for 3-4 whistles or until the dal is soft and chicken is well cooked with minimal moisture.

Cooldown the Shami Kabab mixture and grind it in a mixer grinder until smooth and has the consistency of dough.
( Note: The mixture should not be very soft so avoid using water while grinding the shami kebab mixture.
If the mixture is very very dry then choose a little water to smoothen it out.)

After the mixture has been ground. Make oval-shaped kebabs out of it.

Now dip the kebabs in egg wash and shallow fry them both the side in a pan until golden brown.
The shami kebabs are ready to serve hot with ketchup, mint chutney.
