So the story goes that the lovely Shammi kebabs were created for a overindulgent Newab (these were men of great power that were selected to uphold the sovereignty of Mughal rule) who had lots of money but no teeth.
So his cooks were set to work at his fort in Lucknow to make something delicious and easy for him to eat. They produced the Shammi kebab which was so soft, light and wonderful in texture that it didn't require any teeth to be eaten - so now you know!
I love a good food story and I bet when you cook this you will have a few of your own to tell, well after a few glasses of Pinot Noir that goes so beautifully with this you will!
