There is quite a funny story behind the origin of the Shami Kebab, a minced meat kebab that literally melts in your mouth. It’s said that a chef invented this silky smooth kebab during the Mughal era – for a toothless Nawab of Lucknow. The Nawab was so fat from overindulgence that he couldn’t get on a horse, and his teeth were all gone, presumably for the same reason. So a kebab was made so fine that it required no teeth to eat it. Interesting right?

Well, we have no idea whether this story is true, but we do know that these delightful little appetizers are incredibly soft and smooth to please your taste-buds. It is made of minced mutton, chana dal and spices. The meat is ground and mixed with chickpeas, lentils or other fillers. A variety of spices are added. Among the many spices, cumin is a favorite as well as cardamom, usually ground from the larger whole seed. Other spices, like peppercorns, ginger, or even cinnamon are also included.

Shami Kebabs are a terrific evening snack, really drool worthy! We serve it with coriander chutney and raw onions, sprinkle with lemon juice. Visit us and give your evening a delightful twist.

The dish is too delicious to melt in mouth.

‘Laal Maas’ was a favorite of the gallant Rajput clan. The meat that was caught during hunts was cooked in dry red chillies and whole spices and was simmered in huge handis for hours together. Tomatoes and other vegetables were not native to the land, so chillies and spices were all they had to create the dynamite called ‘Laal Maas’. The meat was then served to the kings in beautiful brassware.

You must have got it by now that this is not a dish for the “fainthearted”. 🙂 But if you love spicy food, do give it a try at Handi Restaurant Jaipur.
