Kacche Papite ke Shami Kabab (Raw Papaya Kabab)

What to do with Raw papaya is always the question? I have tried making shami kababs out of them and they came out pretty good. My son who is fond of the non vegetarian version liked them a lot, so much so that he had them in dinner and then again in breakfast.


Raw Papaya – 500 gms

Chana Dal – 100 gms

Onion – 2 medium

Clove – 6-7

Javitri – 1 flower

Garlic – 9-10 cloves

Ginger – 1and ½ inch piece

Green Chillies – 2

Maida – 2 table spoon

Sooji – 1 table spoon

Salt – as per taste

Oil – for shallow frying


Soak the chana dal overnight. Remove the skin of papaya. Remove seeds if any and fine grate it. Finely chop onions. Finely chop chillies. Roughly grind garlic and ginger (not a very fine paste). Grind the chana dal in coarse paste. Grind the dry masalas in coarse powder (clove,and javitri). Boil the raw papaya and one chopped onion for 10 minutes with half cup of water. Strain the water. In a bowl mix the boiled papaya & onion, one chopped onion, chana dal paste, ginger garlic paste, green chillies, maida and sooji. Add salt and masala powder. Mix it thoroughly. It would take the consistency of mixture with which you can make cutlets.

Now in a non stick pan, heat oil. Make kababs out of the mixture and shallow fry till deep brown. Serve with mint chutney and green salad.

These kababs taste good with roomali rotis, mughlai paranthas, laccha paranthas.
