Raw papaya Shami kabab

We love all types of kababs. Either it's Veg or Non-veg. Whenever we plan a menu for party, we make sure to serve tempting and innovative starters. Shami Kebabs are very popular as a starter or a snack. It is moreover a Non-veg starter. This time I prepared it with Raw papaya. It has a good story behind it. One day I bought stiff papaya from Market to make Jujups. But when I cut that, it was very raw. So I was confused….. What should I do with this….grate it & make paratha or make muthiyas  like lauki. But suddenly idea of kabab came to my mind and I prepared it.


Grated raw papaya - 1 cup
Chana Dal - 1 cup
Gram Flour (Besan) - 2 teaspoon
Red dry chilli - 2-3
Garlic cloves - 7-8
Ginger - 1 inch
Green chilli - 1-2
Chopped fresh coriander - 1/4 cup
Chopped fresh mint leaves - 8-10 leaves
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Black Cardamom - 1
Green Cardamom - 2-3
Cloves - 2-3
Cinnamon - 1
Black pepper - 6-7
Oil - 4 tablespoon
Slat to taste


Boil chana dal, papaya, red chilli, green chilli, garlic, ginger, black & green cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, pepper together until chana dal becomes soft. Drain the water. Grind it without adding extra water. Make a paste. Now add besan, cumin, coriander and turmeric powder, salt and chopped fresh coriander and mint. If you find it very sticky, you can add little more besan to it. Make oval shape kabab of this mixture. Heat oil in frying pan and shallow fry it till it turns to brown colour. Serve with any deep.

This goes to Dil se's sunday-snacks-healthy-snacks event.
