as i mentioned previously, shami kabab recipe can be prepared in myriad ways with several ingredients. this recipe is mainly prepared with vegetarian ingredients for the non-meat eaters. but the most popular is still with the meat, especially with the chicken meat. having said that, the meat-based kebab still uses the black chickpeas and the egg yolk to bind the meat and finally to shape it. contrary to this recipe, i have used all the vegetarian alternative with only black ground chickpeas. also, as an alternative to egg yolk, i have used besan / gram flour which helps to bind while frying. thus making an ideal shami kebab vegetarian alternative.

furthermore, i would like to add some tips and recommendations while preparing shami kabab recipe. firstly, the recipe is commonly prepared with black ground chickpeas however you can use other alternatives too. for example, you can use chana dal, white chickpeas (similar to falafel recipe) which should make evenly good. secondly, i have pan fried these kebabs yielding crisp and golden brown colored kebabs. but it can also be deep fried or shallow fried for the healthier option. lastly, the outer coating is not necessary, as chickpea gives a crunchy texture. but you can also use bread crumbs, crushed oats, bread slices or rusk powder for a more crunchy bite.

notes:

  • firstly, grind chickpea without adding water, else the dough will be very moist and absorb oil.
  • also, replace kala chana with kabuli chana or chana dal. however, the cooking time reduces for chana dal.
  • furthermore, store the dough in the refrigerator for 2 hours before preparing patties. this helps to get a nice shape and do not break in oil.
  • finally, if the veg shami kebab breaks while frying, then add a tbsp of more besan and mix.
