Shammi Kabab

What can one say about Shammi Kabab... it can eaten sandwiched between 2 slices of bread or dinner rolls with your choice of filling or as a side - dish etc.

This is the first time I tried this out myself. I have indulged at my friend's place. Her mother used to make the most fabulous Shammi Kabab. I had jotted it down then and have tried it out after so many years. Hubby's opinion - it was tasty.

Stuffing: -
