Hara Bhara Kabab

Print Friendly and PDF

I love the green color of these kabab's and is one of our family's favourite starter and also is very ideal for a party snack.TH does not like me spending time in kitchen on a holiday and no need to say on a occasion,this time he gave a prior notice to me that I should not be cooking anything on our anniversary (excuses for tea..ofcourse!!!) and we planned our special day for a movie and few trips to the restaurants.But somehow I could not accept that I would not be preparing anything on the special occasion,so I thought of celebrating the day in advance with my home food.So I prepared veg dum biriyani and hara bhara kabab's in order to compensate the actual day celebrations at home.

Ingredients:

2 medium potatoes,boiled
1/2 cup green peas,boiled
1 cup fresh spinach,washed and pat dried
10-12 cashew nuts,halved
2-3 green chillies
1 1/2 " ginger,chopped
1/4 cup besan(chickpea flour)
1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder
1/2 tsp amchur powder
1 1/2 tsp chaat masala
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander
salt to taste

Method:
  • Dry roast besan until nice aroma comes from it.Turn off the stove and keep it aside.
  • Blanch spinach in hot water for 5 mins.Refresh in cold water,drain and squeeze water from it.Try to remove all the excess liquid from it.
  • Grind spinach with ginger,green chillies to a coarse paste(do not add water).Add boiled and drained green peas to it and grind in whipper mode until thick coarse paste.
  • Grate the boiled potato and add the ground mixture,roasted besan and all the masala's,salt and mix well.
  • Grease your hand and make small round tikki's and press a cashew gently into it.Follow the same procedure to do the remaining tikki's.Place them in refrigerator for sometime(for about 1 hr to set properly).
  • Shallow fry in oil on medium flame for 2-3mins until brown in color.(I placed them on a tava which is smeared with oil and fried on both sides on low flame with just 2 tsp oil).
  • Sprinkle some chaat masala all over before serving.
Serve hot with Green chutney/Tomato sauce/Dahi chutney.

These kabab's are going to participate in EC's -Tea Time Snacks Event.

Hi. A belated anniversary wish dear.
These are my favorite kababs too, I am always tempted to order these as starters.
Very well presented and those cashews must have added that extra crunch surely.

Parul said...

These kebabs look yummy! Just wanted to know how many kebabs just the recipe make? Also wanted to know if i can add some paneer to the recipe?

Prathibha said...

@parul..this measurement makes around 15-18 small sized ones approx like I hv shown in fotographs...u can add 1/2 cup grated paneer to it or you can even stuff the spiced up paneer mixture inside the kebabs.Traditionally paneer is not added in these kebabs
