Today, I’m sharing delicious shami kabab Recipe. These are soft and taste chatpata just like authentic shami kabab tikki in bun.
You can use dinner roll or bun or Indian pao to make these bun kabab. I don’t know about others but Karachites love there bun kabab as much as Indian love there pao bhaji.
The pleasure and satisfaction of having this Pakistani Street food is beyond words. These pair very well with namkeen lassi (AKA chaas) or limca ( AKA lemo pani).
